I was tired, frustrated, overwhelmed, grumpy, unhappy. We were nearly homeless and almost out of options. I was tired of fighting, tired of the struggle, tired of trying. I was downright soul-weary.
When our son loudly filled his diaper, my husband looked up at me with a twinkle in his eye and said, “You know what we need to do? We need to
change the diaper of life!
It was so ridiculous, I just had to laugh… and as soon as I laughed, I felt better… and as soon as I felt better, I was able to think clearly… and as soon as I could think clearly, I was able to find solutions… and as soon as I was able to find solutions, our situation seemed to fix itself.
Within just a few weeks, we had new jobs, a new apartment in a new neighborhood and a new outlook on life. It was miraculous!
And it all began with a little bit of ridiculousness… a little bit of laughter… and a lot of change.
It’s been 10 years since that day but we’ve used this lesson over and over again to change and transform our lives for the better.
Crap happens. Bad things happen to good people. The best laid plans fall apart. Disasters strike. People get sick, they become disabled, they die. Unexpected crises (and even unexpected blessings) can rock your world and leave you overwhelmed. Life happens – and life is so imperfect and so messy.
But we don’t have to stay stuck in the mess.
we can change
And that’s what this website is all about! Change and transformation is a beautiful process… and the journey to become our best selves is one that will never be finished. Just like we can change a stinky diaper for a fresh one, we can transform the crappiest situation into the best possible life.
