I’m writing this post against the better judgment of my wife. We (men) usually know what the outcome is when that happens, so here’s to hoping that the powerful lesson you are reminded of outweighs the wrath of a wife’s “do what you want” ultimatum. There aren’t going to be any fancy bullet points or funny jokes in this installment, hope you’re not too disappointed. This is an extremely personal story and you may even wonder why I’m sharing it. Or, you might be compelled to feel sorry for me, but please don’t, I am at peace with what happened and don’t hold a grudge against myself. The reason you’re seeing this is because we need to refocus on what’s inside, not what’s going on around us. The only thing I ask is that you make a genuine resolve to be more aware your thoughts and the understand the effects they have on your outcome.
