Huh?? What am I talking about?! Well, obviously you would not go to a tire store when you wanted to buy a watermelon. BUT, how many times do we try to get something from someone or something that just doesn't have what we need?? How many times have you found yourself expecting someone to "change" and become more emotionally available only to keep feeling let down? Or staying in a relationship that is toxic and simply never going to meet your needs? Or staying in a job that you know is not right for you and is making you stressed and miserable?
Some people will never have what you need. Some jobs will never be right for you. Only YOU will know if you feel like you are stuck and not getting what you need. Nothing is perfect, that's for sure. I'm not telling you to quit your job or leave your relationship because you have some bad days. But I am telling you to pay attention to that voice inside your head if it is telling you it's time to make a change. Stop wasting your time with anything or anyone that is not meeting your needs, or is holding you back.
If you keep shopping for watermelons at a tire store, you will NEVER find them. If you keep doing what you've always been doing, then you will keep getting what you've always been getting! You are the one doing the "shopping" so be mindful of what it is you truly need and if your needs are not being met. Then go find a different "store!"
That's it for now - until next time,
Here's to the road that lies ahead. Here's to you!
