Sometimes in life, we think things are going great, but then we get a little surprise – something we did not see coming. That’s an emotional flag on the play of our lives. I want to preface this whole episode by saying that I am not a football fan, but this is the perfect metaphor for what I’ve got for you today.
I was in a situation recently where a medical professional informed me of my weight. This might sound familiar to you too. I was heavier than I anticipated, and all of a sudden, my thoughts exploded. I was left thinking about everything I had done wrong, every decision I had made that contributed to this number on the scale, and what it meant about me as a person. This is the worst train of thought I could have gotten on at this point.
