I’ve been traveling a lot lately and on one of those trips I had the pleasure of visiting a college friend and her family. In addition to the general awesomeness of hanging out with people I adore, she also introduced me to my new favorite proverb:
It’s so easy for me to get caught up in other people’s decisions, or to feel somehow responsible for “fixing” problems where, not only do I have little to no influence, but often outside advice is not helpful or welcome.
So I’m closing down my unsolicited circus-consulting business and redoubling my efforts to spend my time and energy making what goes on inside my own three-ring circus the greatest show on earth.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
