Life is sour…then it’s sweet!

So…I’m my son’s hairstylist. While loading the dishwasher this morning, I was thinking about how much I’m dreading washing my son’s hair. Why? Because he HATES getting his hair touched at all. What’s more…this is how much hair he has:

So then, as I continued filling up the dishwasher, I realized hey, MAYBE if we go shopping for some cool bath tub toys today, I can distract him from the disdain of *gasp* his mom trying to take good care of his hair.

Is it gonna work? I don’t know. That’s not the point.

The point is, I realized how quickly a problem begets a solution. How quickly the shitty things that occur in our lives, can provide us a chance to create a beautiful upside.

My husband calls me a sour patch; it’s a fun term of endearment. But of course, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t look deeper at this sour-sweet label. The truth is, this sweet and sour thing is a way of life, is it not?

Isn’t it a lot like night and day? Dark and light? Clean and dirty?

So the main point of this post if just a gentle reminder that no matter what issue you are facing right now…always remember…



Just look for it!
