Square Peg, Round Hole

Sometimes my daily calendar really does make me smile and a recent entry did just that. It read:

‘You can’t get prune juice from an orange, no matter how hard you squeeze it.’ Wayne Dyer.

There are so many times in life when we try to force and force something – no matter how much push back we get. The old adage, ‘square peg, round hole’ comes to mind, but the refreshing analogy used here helped me to view it from a different angle.

Have you found yourself banging your head against a brick wall recently?

I know that my stubbornness can be a hinderance rather than a help sometimes, and I often need someone else to tell me when it’s time to call it quits and either approach something in a different way or leave it behind altogether.

Even though it’s often someone else who makes it clear I need to make this decision, deep down inside I’m always aware of what I should really be doing. So right now, I’m here to ask you, what should you be getting ready to leave behind or approach in a different way?
