Just a Little Thing

I have discovered the joys of smoking meat on my grill. I now regularly smoke turkey breasts about every other week. Today I was cleaning the grill, adjusting the height. It has always been a little tricky about getting the grill to sit just right on the brackets. For the first time, I took a good look at the brackets and realized I had been mounting the rack totally wrong. It just needed a simple squeeze so the arms were on the inside of the brackets instead of the outside. I've had that grill for 3 years and never noticed how to mount the rack. Of course, the paperwork is still zip tied to the bottom of the grill.

It is the little things in life that can trip us up and make things difficult. Often help is just a hand reach away, but we refuse to ask for help. We make it so hard on ourselves.

Disappointments and pain are a natural part of life. Some of those things we can handle and move through. Others, not so much. Do not fall into the misguided thinking that if you ignore something, it will go away. It doesn't. It hangs around and makes itself known in sneaky ways. For example: A young girl reaches out to her Dad, but he is always too busy. She keeps reaching and Dad keeps not being present. Little girl is now a young woman. She now reaches out to men for the loving connection she never got as a young girl only she keeps choosing men who are emotionally unavailable. She never makes the connection and continues feeling rejected and unloved.

We must deal with the disappointments and pains in our life in a healthy way. Please ask for help. It's time to stop "making do" and fix what's broken. Perhaps all you need is a little nudge in the right direction. It sure would have made my grilling experience much easier had I just read the directions.
