Prayers: Waittime lost mother-in-law over the Holidays. Truly Mentor and Friend who passed away. 

COT: I had something planned prior to the beatdown but it went out the window during the workout. It has been awhile since my last post due to illness and surgery. Plague mentioned “man LPC you are out of shape!” It was a healthy reminder! A Guardrail if you will. This made my mind race and wander. It brought me to the idea of learning lessons. In life we have a tendency to deny and delay work or acceptance of lessons to get us on the right track. If we are listening to the clues and instances early we can make the necessary adjustments and be better for it. If we deny the clues and what the world and people are trying to tell us and delay the response necessary that lesson become much harder and more intense because the clues have to be major moments for us to notice. We may be too prideful or stubborn. The question is what are we not listening to right now that we should be? If we listen now we can save ourselves the pain and the blowout of waiting with minimal collateral damage.
