Today we have the final part of Erin Brown Conroy’s popular series back to the blog, about finding purpose in the midst of our mess. It’s been a pleasure hosting Erin, and today’s post is as good as ever. Over to Erin:
The last two posts, we talked about five messes in our lives—and how we can turn those messes into triumphant stories.
Here are the final five messes to avoid…and how to fix them.
MESS #6: Saying “later” to something that needs to be addressed—and never coming back to it.
Too many of us have the ostrich affect, with our heads in the sand (and if ostriches had fingers, the fingers would be stuck in their ears, too, to keep anything “bad” from getting to us).
We get good at ignoring, hoping that problems will fade away.
Ignoring a mess, a problem, or an issue never helps, never solves, and never sets lives right. Never.
