Stuck in the DrivewayToday some friends of my next door neighbor was stuck in her driveway. (You know the drill... To much snow and not enough momentum....)
With shovels we cleared the snow and Ice. He finally hit the traction sweet spot but did not take of as you'd think. It still seemed a struggle to get the car moving. Then we was the cause....
We Laughed at FistWe laughed inside first then out loud later. It was pretty funny to see the back tire sliding along on the ice. No rolling here. Nope, not one bit. We were watching a great lesson of life. Here it is. When you release the emergency brake you can really get moving.
Then the lesson sunk in.How many times in life do we think the problem is the one right before us. You know the spinning tires. The revving engine and the lack of results. It is the obvious problem we call on the experts to help us. They come with their tools and help to shovel us out and send us on our way.
So often the story continues in our lives. The obvious "real" problem is gone but we don't realize there are hidden and/or forgotten areas of our lives that are the cause of our grief. Those core issues stand in the way of real progress. They are the elephants in the room that nobody can see but everybody senses is there.
