What's next?

Did you really think you would wake one morning and not have any problems?

Did you really think you would wake one morning and not have any problems?

Some phrases stick in your mind. They change the way you think.

When I'm faced with yet another problem, this one works wonders:

Did you really think you would wake one morning and not have any problems?

It comes up a lot. Because I'm faced with problems a lot. We all are.

It's tempting to think life will begin when the problems stop. When we've completed the to-do list. When we have a bit more money. When we have a bit more time.

That day will never come.

And we should be glad of that. We are our problems. We love those problems. We were made to find solutions, and we really enjoy doing so.

When we accept we'll always have problems, we can shift our thought process.

We go from “not another bloody problem” to “OK, what's next?”.
