We're headed up to Portland tomorrow for a little vacation in conjunction with Donald Miller's Living a Better Story Seminar. His book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years was/is a life-changer for us. We decided part of our story would include this trip to Portland as an investment in our lives. Plus, it's Portland, hello!
I was joking with Monica the other day because after being inspired by Don's book, we had some real excitement about a new story; however, as the inspiration dwindled and time moved on, we started a new story called "How to Try Without Really Succeeding." It's like we have these ideas and want to live better stories, but our efforts just lead to more of the same. And yet, sometimes the conflict to overcome in a story is self-sabotage...
In fact, as the saying should go, the more things stay the same, the more they change [in order to stay the same].
