Bubble fail

Chris and Ashley took Addi on a fun weekend trip to Seattle so I got Alex for 3 whole days!

Oh, we had such fun.

alex-bubblesOne day we were blowing bubbles outside and, of course, he wanted to do it himself.

He set everything up for success but then he tried too hard and then he didn’t try hard enough.

We had a bubble fail. Click on the play button in the picture to watch Alex’s effort. The sound effects get me every time!

The best part is he kept trying until it worked.

Have you ever tried too hard at something and it didn’t work? Have you ever given minimal effort and gotten the same result?

We can everything set up just right but due to our efforts it may not work.

There is always just a right amount of effort where things work so smoothly. What’s interesting is that we often need to re-learn this lesson every day.
I’ve found when things just aren’t going the way I want I know it’s time to take a step back. Re-think my approach. Re-think my why. Re-think my strategy. Once that is done it’s usually a piece of cake!

Is there anything you are trying, it’s not working, and it may be time to take a step back?
