Ok, so we’ve now identified whether we generally approach life as a mystery or a problem to be solved. I think it’s safe to say we all have a sense of both in our lives. We’re going to set mystery aside for the next three weeks and deal with “problems” then wind up with the question of mystery again. Are you ready to get real?
These next three questions are fairly simple — on the surface. But I bet we haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about them or how they affect our behavior. And our behavior often sets the tone for our path in life…
How do you respond to problems in your life?
Now, we may have more than one MO when it comes to dealing with issues. If so, list them all, but try to identify what behaviors go with which types of problems.
As always, remember to include the link to this post on YOUR blog post. Or if your response isn’t overly long, feel free to leave it in the comment section below. And please feel free to interpret the prompt however you wish: memoirs, poems, pictures, etc.
If you would like to see the previous prompts, they’re listed in the menu at the top of the blog in The Sandbox Writing Challenge. But please feel free to just jump in wherever we are at the moment! After all, the prompts are really for YOU to get to know YOURSELF. (Posts from past prompts you wish to tackle will always be added to the current week’s challenge page.)
I would be curious to know how many of you — besides me — really struggle with knowing certain behaviors are counter productive, but feeling like you just can’t get a handle on changing them.
