Coloring inside the lines, like thinking inside the box, is restrictive and confining. It limits one's ability to creatively problem-solve.
Our world is rapidly changing and what got us here will not necessarily move us forward.
We would benefit from a change in perspectives, assumptions, and to try different approaches --to "think outside the box". Stretching our minds to explore different possibilities would make it easier to adjust to unexpected and unprecedented situations.
But we are creatures of habit and a lot of times we stay stuck in our boxes.
And squeeze our kids into them with us instead of embracing their innovative thinking.
If you're stuck in your box or want to make it a little bigger, make it a point to do something different every day. Take a new route to the grocery store. Switch your sock and underwear drawer.
And allow your kids to guide you. Everything may not work out -- but it will open and expand your mind to trying new things.

MOMMIN' AIN'T EASY!
And taking care of everyone's needs, keeping a house, running a business, distance learning, and working outside the home, it can be harder times 10!
Why do we think we have to go it alone? We need support and real-life, implementable strategies.
If you need help figuring out what to do...schedule a BREAKTHROUGH SESSION today.
We'll look at your goals, the challenges you're facing, opportunities you might be missing. We'll also uncover hidden problems that may be sabotaging your desired results. You'll leave the session feeling renewed, re-energized, and inspired to get results faster and easier than you thought possible. And you'll have a plan of action to do just that.
"Action is the foundational key to all success." Picasso
