Mom Was Right About the Mattress

A few months ago, we had a township dumpster pass.  It’s always nice to get rid of a bunch of crap that is sitting around taking up space.

 

The universe abhors a vacuum but if your vacuum is full of clutter, then you have no space for anything new and better to enter.

 

Anyhow, after loading up the truck with our load and dropping it off, I drove over to my parents to pick up some stuff for them.

 

I loaded up the couch and a few boxes and then my mom reminded me that I could take the heavy mattress that Devon and I had stored there a few years ago.  So, we lugged it up the steps and proceeded t plop it on top of all the other stuff.

 

My mom told me to strap it down but I told her that it was heavy enough and I was only going a short distance and driving slowly at that.

 

Well, about a half a mile away from the entrance, out flew the mattress.  Thank god no one was behind me!

 

I did a loopty-loop and got out, into the middle of the road to load it back up.  There was no foul because there was no harm.

 

Yet, I tried to take the quick route and the easier way when I should have just heeded the advice of my mom.

 

Sometimes we need to just listen and apply, especially when the words are coming from someone older and wiser.

New Year, New You?

365 days ago, you had a vision of what this past year would look like.

 

It’s a very common thing and it’s great to get a fresh start.

 

Yet, if you continue to do the same thing year after year and keep winding up in the same place, then that’s the equivalent of riding a stationary bike 10,000 miles.

 

You could have traveled around the world on a regular bike but yet you chose to stay put.  Did you actually have 10,000 miles of experience?

 

Make a list of your frustrations from this past year and then put together a bullet point list of an action plan on how those same frustrations won’t happen again this year.

 

New frustrations are fine.  But to continue to relive old frustrations is a fools game.

A Breakthrough for the Boys

Back in July, we moved Tank into Munchies room in anticipation of Emma taking over Tank’s room.

 

It took some getting used to for them and us.

 

Anyhow, its been pretty smooth sailing, Munch sleeps in the bottom bunk of his bunk bed and Tank still sleeps in a crib.

 

Well, not long ago, I heard a commotion late at night.  I went down to inspect and Munchie had pushed the toy chest over to the crib and helped Tank climb up and out.  The two weasels had figured out an escape plan.

 

The next night, at 2 in the morning, once again, I  hear a commotion.  I go down, bright lights from the room are turned on and Munchie once again was trying to help Tank escape.  I nipped that attempt in the bud.

 

Tank couldn’t have done it himself.  But with the help of his brother, it was possible.

 

This is a lot like how Coaching works.  A Coach is someone that can help you get to a destination  that  you cannot get to  on your own.

 

In this case, Munchie was Tank’s Coach.

 

If you are looking for a Coach heading into the New Year, all you have to do is reach out to us via any of the means below or by simply  replying to this email.

There Was a Bird in our Bedroom

2 weeks ago, Devon was out for her morning workout and I was on dad duty.  I was carrying Emma around like a football, Munch was playing with army men and Tank was exploring around the house.

 

All of the sudden, Tank comes over to tell me there was a bird in the bedroom.  I thought it was just Tank being Tank.  But sure enough, there as a bird in our bedroom.

 

Mayhem ensued.

 

The dogs were going crazy, Tank was growling and Munchie was in full nerf-gun mode.

 

It was a great moment, a great memory.

 

If you had asked me the night prior to predict what my 3 wins for the day would have been, bird hunting in the bedroom would not have been one of them.

 

It was such a fluke event (although far from the first time we’ve had a bird in the house!).

 

Life is like that, enjoy the craziness and the fun moments, when it’s all said in done, all we really have is shared moments, memories and experiences.

Monday Mindset: Resist and It Will Persist

When  I first  started working out seriously, back in my sophomore year of highschool, I was all consumed.

 

I would spend literally hours in the gym, wanting so badly to get bigger and stronger.

 

I knew that with resistance training, I had to overcome the resistance in front of me in order to force my body to grow.

 

In life, what we resist will persist.

 

We need to go into the resistance, it is one of the surest ‘x marks the spot’ on the map of life that I know of.

 

And if you are avoiding something because it  is going to be tough, then that thought will eat at you until you tackle it.

 

Thus, that which you resist will persist.   Resistance training of the mind is a real thing.  Resistance of all forms is there to make us grow, just like I found out nearly 25 years ago when I first started hitting the weights.

 

And if a situation keeps coming up with a different dressing, but the same type of problem, know that it will continue to come up until you overcome the resistance to it.

The Real Reason I Dropped Home Ec

We had an awesome date night not long ago with another couple that used to live 2 townhouses down.

 

The night started with Devon and I going for manny/peddies:).  Yes, I go from time to time…

 

Anyhow, we wanted to socialize a little bit afterwards so we went out for a drink with our friends.  Now, Stacey and I graduated high school together.  We were acquaintances but not friends.

 

Out of nowhere during our relaxing cocktail she says, ‘I thought you were such a jerk in high school and so did all of my friends.’

 

Devon started laughing and so did I, which I followed up with, ‘What did I ever do to you?’

 

There was nothing I did, she took my introverted ways and interpreted them as arrogance and then she also saw that I had a bunch of athlete friends because, well, I was an athlete.

 

I explained to her that I was horribly shy in high school and insecure like many people are.  She reminded me that we shared a home ec class together our freshman year.  That made me think of the home ec class I signed up for my senior year.

 

I only lasted a week because I found out there would be a presentation at the end of the semester and it scared the B-Geezus out of me.  As I said, I was terribly shy and thus petrified to speak in front of others.

 

The teacher found me in the hallway before basketball practice and ripped me a new one, calling me lazy and having ‘senioritis’.  If she only knew…

 

I regret making that decision but like anything, that same lesson continued to appear again and again until I was willing to slay it.  In college, I practiced a 5 minute ‘how to tie a fishing hook’ presentation for weeks because I was so nervous.

 

After college, I enrolled in ToastMasters and now I have zero issue with public speaking.  That which we resist, will persist.

 

Deal with the lessons of life as they come your way because, well, they won’t go away until you embrace them.
