When What Once Worked Suddenly Doesn’t ~ Adapting to Change

My arm had swollen to the point of alarm. Skin was taut and it itched like crazy.

I’d been stung by a bee.

I tried many things, but nothing was giving me relief!

There is irony in the term “hive mind.” I went to my Facebook hive mind and showed them my arm asking for help.

The best remedy my body and that sting responded to was a water and baking soda paste. I put a bit of gauze over it, wrapped it up and went to bed. After about 5 hours I woke, removed it and went back to bed. I slept another 5 hours. I think the poison made me tired! I did this for one more day and by the end of day 4 it is barely noticeable. I am so grateful, as my research had stated symptoms may last 7 - 30 days!

Note to self: when you go away to the Northwoods, bring baking soda just in case!

Sometimes what once worked suddenly doesn’t.

Doing something different yields different results

We all wear hats. All different shapes and sizes, colors and materials. Some suit us, some don’t. Some fit ok and some make us shine. Some worked once upon a time, but now we are so comfortable with them hanging around, it has never occurred to us to let them go.

Some hats overlap with others. You might find yourself trying to pull your roles apart and you know what? They are so entangled you can’t.

I participated in a three day virtual retreat last week. A good portion was dedicated to six hats of the Entrepreneur. It highlighted what hats I shine in wearing and what hats I just as soon toss in the trash.

Some hats are necessary to wear but they constrict and bite and are uncomfortable.

==> Are you following a path wearing the wrong hat?

==> Or wearing a hat that fits great but no longer suits you?

==> Do you recognize which hats make you shine the brightest?

Are you weary of all the hats in your closet and wandering down the path looking for a hat that is...
