I just thought I would share with you what part of the process looks like. From Just Lynn to Judge Lynn. Takes about an hour and a half.
It was a longer than usual week this week in LA. Lots of interviews and photo sessions. I had to wear high heels. You now a girls feet and knees where killing her!
But these days my new PIP (for all of you who are new here it is a Personal Improvement Program – I almost always have one going) is to learn to enjoy the journey.
Problems to be solved are not things to be worry about but puzzles to be completed.
Encounters with people who tend to stress you are Emotional Exercises. ”How can I,” as my mother would say, “figure out how what they are feeling is dictating their behavior and address that emotion in a way that satisfies it while getting what I need from them?” Beating that game means not beating them but mastering your own emotions, addressing theirs and resolving the situation in a manner the meets your needs.
Those things are intellectual challenges. And I like brain teasers. It’s all in your approach and perspective. Well, at least that’s what I am working on . . .
On a more mundane and logistical note: When I got home from taping all was Toler Normal:
E was happy to see me.
The house was clean.
The refrigerator was empty.
19 was playing his guitar and, you guessed it
16 was grounded.
. . . and so it goes.
