Meet Shit Sandwiches Of Life
Updated: Sep 1, 2020
Queen, you probably have already noticed that this blog is about direct and...sometimes uncomfortable truth.
Here is one fundamental truth that even spirituality cannot get away from:
Everything, even the most desired sparkly and glittery goals have their own shit sandwich or ...even few of them.
Does not sound so appealing or inspiring, does it?
Well, let's take a look at what exactly Shit Sandwich means, does not matter we want it or not.
I encountered that phrase first time while listening to the talk of my favorite speaker and author Brene Brown. She was discussing her well-known work about vulnerability and fear.
Fear of starting out new things, commiting to new actions and experiences. Sounds familiar? I am raising my two hands and... legs.
Does not sound so appealing or inspiring, does it? Well, let's take a look at what exactly Shit Sandwich means, because we all encounter them, does not matter we want it or not.
Well, because whatever magical passionate and super duper exciting goal we choose – it will always have a shit sandwich included as a bonus present.
Yes, darling, even spiritual practices have shit sandwiches included in them.
So what exactly is this shit sandwich? Shit sandwich is an uncomfortable outcome, task, attribute attached to your goal.
It is in fact your goal, because it is a part of the goal.
Let's say you want to be a writer, your shit sandwich might be waking up early to write; or writing in a discipline manner, specific amount of pages per week.
Let's say you want to be a speaker, your shit sandwich is lots of time spend for preparation, confidence build-up, long traveling hours.
Let's say you want to open your own company, you shit sandwich is big responsibility and hard work.
Whatever it is, everything has at least one shit sandwich, Queeen.
Because the truth is that whatever we choose to do with our lives, our tasks will not be plainly bright and shiny.
