Trying to Let Go of Needing a Solution

Wayne Froggart writes about core beliefs people hold that get in the way of happiness, or at least contentment. (Thanks to the writer of Lotsa Laundry for the link.) Stated in extreme forms, these are things like "I need love and approval" and "I must ... make no mistakes."

Here's the one that got me thinking: "Every problem should have an ideal solution."

Maybe not. Maybe every problem doesn't need a solution. Maybe some problems are for someone else to solve, and not for me.

I'm going to spend the next few days holding these ideas close, and see where they take me.
