A few days ago, when I was feeling pulled in many different directions at the same time, I tweeted this:
“If you find that ur best-laid plans n good intentions are waylaid by having to attend to your kids’ needs, are those ‘reasons’ or ‘excuses’?”
I received a response from my friend, John Kuan of SacredScenery.com, who said,
“Neither. they’re rescheduled compromises.”
“That’s a brilliant way of reframing it! I feel better now,” said I.
To which he replied, “Babe – nothing is wasted :)”
Nothing is wasted indeed. What does that mean to you?
(Thanks a bunch for giving me a different perspective, John!)
