Subtraction Stew

Have you ever read the book; ‘The Phantom Tollbooth‘ by Norton Juster? It’s a fabulous read, and can improve your standard of living as well! A school did a play on the Subtraction Stew moment and it definitely explains the lesson to be learned from subtraction stew.

Have you ever said no to someone you really want in your life because they’re pushing you away but you also know their intentions were exactly opposite?

Have you ever worked hard for something? Invested all your blood, sweat, and tears into a project, your goals (that are created from heart centered dreams) into the very project you’re working on to make it reality?

Have you ever tried to speak, but every time you open your mouth those words fall away into the darkness and you’re left groping for them in silence while the quietness grows louder every minute?

Have you ever walked away from family, work, or people because you want to be treated better? Because even you treat yourself better than others do?

Have you ever needed to leave a toxic environment, but your situation didn’t allow it to happen immediately? And all your work towards making it happen fell away just before it all fell into place?

Did you choose to get up and try again until it worked or did you give up?

It’s difficult. The grief. The heartache. The letting go. The moving on. But that’s what’s required so you can achieve your:

  • New life.
  • New adventures.
  • New surroundings.
