Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

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.

  1. Just want you to know that my time spent with you through Low Hanging Fruit is still valuable and inspiring! I love seeing posts from you. It makes me happy to know you’re still out there pursuing your dreams.
