Wellness tip of the day

Change what isn’t working

“An old dog lies half-asleep on the porch of a general store, moaning and groaning in the sun. After watching him go on like that for a few minutes, a customer asks the store owner, “Why is your dog acting that way?” “Oh, him,” drawls the man, “that’s Homer. Homer’s fussin’ cause he’s lyin’ on a nail.” “Well, why doesn’t he move?” “’Cause it ain’t hurtin’ him bad enough.”

I came across this story while reading a book called, The Secret Language of Money by David Krueger and John David Mann. It really spoke to me. I hope it speaks to you.

Wellness tip of the day: “There are times when you just need to move on—when you need to get off the nail you’ve been lying on before you can see clearly enough to find your passion.”

Get off of the nail, change what isn’t working.
