Choose your solution.

I’ve heard a lot of laments lately — the state of the nation; the state of the workplace; the state of relationships.

But for every lament there are solutions, and they are legion.

Here’s one solution I like: become what I desire.

Do I desire peace? Then find ways to be more peaceful in my daily life.

Do I desire to be appreciated? Then practice appreciation as I go through my day.

We will always come across things to lament. But staying mired in lamentation does no one any good. Lament, then choose a solution.

And tell the rest of us about it!
