Lisa has a heart that wants to share. I so appreciate that. She listened to me mentioning in a previous episode that people have a hard time sharing HARD THINGS in life, and that some listeners want to hear more about overcoming life's obstacles.

She reached out to me, and said she wants to share her story. She has had some hard things in life, and she really wanted to share about how she kept waiting for happiness to come, and decided she had to just be happy despite life's curveballs.

"When you beat yourself up, you paralyze yourself. You can't progress, improve, and move forward." That then prohibits you from being the parent you want to be. She shares an activity her therapist recommended about this, and I LOVE it!

You can't spend your life waiting for the next bad thing to happen...why be miserable? She mentions putting trust in Gods plan, that we can't save our children from mistakes.
