I have several “sayings” that I use often. I will eventually share all of these with you. One of my favorites seems so obvious.

You only know what you know

Of course, we can not know things we have not learned yet. New information and different ways of doing things and thinking about things are out there. We just have to find them. We also need to understand that, maybe, our way of doing things is not working for us.

We do what we know; what we have learned growing up, in school, in church, from friends and family. If you are finding that the way you have always done things is not working. What’s next? Is there another way? How do you even figure out how to do that? When you are blue in the face, cried for too long, frustrated with the dead ends. Look for a new way. That might mean asking for help.

It may seem obvious, but until we understand that perhaps we need to learn a new way; the way we have always done things does not work, you can not see it.
