Hey, no kidding, as far as weeks go, last week was rough -more rough than normal, and absolutely great, too.
In response to the bad week, we got some good news from the USTPO -US Trademark and Patent Office. Please see the photo above. This isn't the great news, though. (Although it was pretty cool... Especially after a year of waiting.)
The great week came about on Saturday. We did our usual gig of forgetting the week day routine and, instead, put on the Saturday routine of grabbing coffee, going for a drive and looking at real estate. And we normally use that Saturday time to listen to podcast or books.
One book that we have listened to more than once, and actually read back in the day, was on rotation. We were only half listening, and instead spent a lot of time circling the drain with a few problems that came up over the past week.
We usually like to look at worse case scenarios and see if we can handle them for any given problem. If we can, great! If we cannot then we need to adjust course. This past week and the events that took place were no different. The only real difference was that instead of asking the questions and then coming up with the answers, we kept asking the questions over and over and over again. We were playing a movie in our mind of uncertainty and bad results. And then something clicked.
In a heartbeat, and maybe it was because of the book that we were listening to, we decided in one millisecond to run towards what we want, instead of running from what we fear. That small distinction made all the difference in the world. Suddenly the clouds lifted and the world became a world of possibilities instead of limitations. We know… It sounds hokey. But trust us when we say it is true. We followed that up with our personal relationship and faith beliefs on Sunday, and suddenly the whole world is bright again. The shift was within us. As strange as this may sound, our hope is that someone out there will find utility and comfort in our sharing these events here. We hope so.
