Food for Thought: Other People's Lessons

Hey Everyone,

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I find it really hard to just let people close to me learn lessons on their own. I guess that's the helper in me. Instinctively, I want to help, but I know that sometimes you just have to step back and let people figure things out at their own pace, in their own time. This can be especially frustrating when they just keep making the same darn mistake over and over again, but what can you do? You can take this week's food for thought to heart and just let them be. They'll figure it out sooner or later. Preferably sooner.... :)

Food for Thought: The Easiest Thing...

Hi All,

Have any of you seen that show "Say Yes to the Dress" on TLC? For those who haven't, it's about brides searching for their perfect wedding dress and just how hard it is to decide on a gown, especially when the friends and family they've brought along to help all have their own opinion about what the bride should be wearing. It's not a show I usually watch, so I've only seen a handful of episodes, but you wouldn't believe some of the comments coming form the bridal peanut gallery. Sheesh!

Anyway, I happened to catch part of an episode the other day and this bride was trying so hard to please her mother and her fiance, it was just ridiculous. I actually found the fiance to be worse than her mother. He was way too controlling about the style. Thankfully, the owner of the shop took it upon herself to send him on his way so that the bride could think straight and finally settle on a gown. After all, the bride is the one who has to love and wear the dress, not her fiance or her mother or any other overly opinionated member of the bridal peanut gallery!

This week's food for thought is a reminder to stay true to you and be yourself.

Until next time,
