The Struggle is real.

Updated: Nov 13, 2019

Beep! Beep! Beep! Back it on up. Nothing like learning new skills and then being thrown into old behaviors to test your newfound abilities.


Let me tell you, I failed. I failed so hard.


Remember my post last week on Engaging Cooperation? Turns out I really struggle with this. The real kick in the teeth? I KNOW WHAT TO DO TO MAKE IT BETTER! And, yet- in those high tense moments, I really struggle to do it.


Sometimes I feel like I should tattoo all my options on my forearm, but for now, post-its will have to do. 


I think it is important to remember that when implementing anything new, you are bound to face resistance.  For me personally, I tend to focus on what I  need to give up (control, having it go my way), instead of putting in the added effort of what I am learning and what all I could gain from it.


Keep fighting the good fight, Mama.
