Means a “do-over” in sports and, in life as well. This is my mulligan week. Last week was a mess for all the wrong reasons. I have some family stuff going on and there is a part of me that got deeply resentful that on top of dealing with this, I had to deal with a pattern of behavior from other people, who – while they really have nothing to do with my life – can push some of my largest buttons.
So you back up, circle the wagons a bit and let the dust settle and try again, although this time, making some different choices and making sure some doors don’t open.
Fear can sometimes be a very subtle and deceptive thing. If you asked me last week how fearful I was about a certain family members health and procedure that is happening today I would have laughed it off.
Now, its 6am on Monday and I am sitting in a cafe waiting for everyone else to arrive so we can help each other get through the day. Who knows how all will go?
But one thing I have learned this week is that the strongest people in my life, are the ones who have lives offline. In the past few months my own has grown as well. Its funny how that has begun to deepen our relationships.
I’ll rant about Eisenhower tomorrow.
