Ever notice how every problem, regardless how deeply rooted or intricate, can be solved by the artful pursuits of the television characters in under an hour? Or our beloved movie characters can bring worldwide resolution and peace in less than 90 minutes?
Guess what? That is not how reality works! Many issues have taken years to develop, and will not be resolved in an hour. For example, people who want to lose weight should never try to “shortcut” to their weight goal. Why? Because eating habits must be changed and habits change over time, not instantaneously. Granted, life could be more interesting if our problems could be solved as quickly as on television………But we most likely wouldn’t learn anything.
“Time is the great healer.” That means time (and effort) are necessary to reach resolution. You can sit on the mountaintop and wait, which changes nothing except you get older without results, or you can take steps to find a solution, which brings change.
It helps to develop a plan and get help to proceed. But it also helps to talk to trusted friends who might be able to offer some new insight or perspective. So please, take time to think and for goodness’ sake…….BOOGLE ON!!!
