Three ways to lean into discomfort

Nine months before Rosa Parks, 15-year old Claudette went to jail for not giving up her bus seat, which was the comfortable practice so white bus riders always had a seat. (It’s sickening to imagine our Country was this way and white people were comfortable with it.)

Three ways to lean into discomfort:

  1. You are forced to
  2. Someone helps you
  3. You self-initiate

Comfort equals stagnation.

Confront and experience

These hikers were present and mindful enough to recognize a dangerously lose rock and move it to a stable position. They confronted danger for someone else and experienced the peace in knowing they did what they could.

A wonderful conversation yesterday with a college freshman.

Asked, “How is college?”

A delightful reply, “When bad things happen, I’m able to confront them. When good things happen, I am able to experience them.”

Profoundly simple and simply profound.

As an adult community, we should all be so equipped, mindful, and present.

Unanswered Questions?

What’s your obligation?

Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

Are you satisfied?

With what?

With who you are and where you are in life?

And what’s your obligation to help those who’s mindset isn’t a growth mindset?

A growth mindset revolves around adult to adult mindset versus parent-child mindset.

One Question A Day?

What does humanity gain by not changing?

Disney Keynote Speakers

Most people need love and acceptance a lot more than they need advice. – Bob Goff

Read this on LinkedIn yesterday.

It stopped me.

i thought for a few minutes and then had to type this train of thought…

i agree with Bob.

But betting i differ on where “most people” would find enough generous love and acceptance.

In the mirror.

Love and acceptance is an inside job.

The Internet (or a library) offers unlimited learning. Somewhere along human evolution, we’ve neglected teaching our youth the power of the growth mindset and personal accountability for our mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

We shun this opportunity during public and private education.

And thus send generation after generation into adulthood, and parenting, only to perpetuate our current reality.

We may assume that we, ourselves, have also been sent into adulthood unprepared, because our parents were sent out unprepared.

As a misfit, i’m simply a dad that recognizes the much is and decided to break the chain.

In a perfect world, Son, you will be much better at this than i have been.
