These are moments after I begin to get unhappy and understand like, ‘okay, we’re happening a nasty path right here, issues are beginning to get just a little bitter.’ Then I am going to actually lean into planning issues. It is all about planning issues to look ahead to and be enthusiastic about. Whether or not it is a barbecue, a dinner with buddies or happening just a little journey, simply giving myself one thing to look ahead to, and that can maintain me over for one more week. Then it is like, okay, what else can we plan? Discovering issues to look ahead to helps me greater than something.
