60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: When You’re a Hammer Everything Looks Like a Nail.
by Diane Wyzga | August 25, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Oak Harbor, Washington!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Trekking up Heartbreak Hill the other day I was reminded that it was okay to stop a moment in the shade of a tree, breathe deep and take in the view. I didn’t have to power up that steep unforgiving hill all at once. I was learning to forgive myself.
You see when I was younger than I am now I stomped around making furious gestures pretty angry about everything and everyone and my lot in life.
You know how they say, “When you’re a hammer everything looks like a nail”? That was me. It didn’t make for gentle living. Although sometimes it was satisfying to bash away.
What happened next? Age, wisdom, experience, and a deep forgiveness. They say that “Forgiveness is a journey toward feeling whole.” I can tell you it’s worked for me – maybe it will work for you, too.
