After dinner I cut away the broken section of pipe and went off to Home Depot for the new pieces. The repair took 15 minutes and cost about $6. I had a discussion with my sons who walk by that area every day. I told them listen when you see an issue occur you need to let me know, I can’t fix what I don’t know about. None of them said they put the duct tape on the broken pipe. One day I will find out who that other person is. It’s a joke in my house when nobody admits to doing something they all say it’s another person.
Years ago I was helping a couple of my sons clean up their room. I noticed all their cars were missing, so I asked where are all your cars. One of them pointed to the door, so I looked behind the door and little did I know they banged the door handle into the wall and made a hole. When I looked at the hole and I noticed it was full of toys. I guess that is one way of cleaning up the toys. I had to remove part of the wall to get out all the toys, then I patched it all back up. I told them way back then, when something gets broken let me know and I will fix it.
Then there was this time I was watching soccer practice and this little girl started yelling and crying. Her mother came running over to her and hugged her. The girl keep yelling and crying and the mom keep asking what is wrong; I can’t help you until you tell me the issue.
Hiding issues is like sweeping dirt under the carpet, at some point in the future there will be a bump. I know most people hold issues and don’t want to discuss them. That is one of the worst things you can do to you and those around you. Keeping silent and not discussing the issue will just make it worst. Hiding issues also eats away at your joy and love. You need to discuss the issue right away it could be a simple fix then, but if you let it eat at you it will get very bad. Go out there and tell others about issues you feel needs addressing. Then focus on joy and love.
Much joy and love to you and yours
