My mind was blown this week by a RuPaul quote. I never thought I’d say those words all in a row…but check this out:
“You’re not stuck in traffic. You are the traffic.”
Self-awareness is an ongoing challenge for most of us. We like to blame external circumstances without taking a look at our contribution to the problem at hand.
Next time you find yourself complaining, whether it be about a work issue or something at home, pause and take a look at how you might be making matters worse instead of better.
You may make a different choice. Or maybe you’ll just complain a little less. Either way, it’s a win.
