Have Screwdriver Will Travel

Think about all of the things we could be missing out on in life because we don’t see ourselves in that role.  Whether it’s a relationship, or a job, or any other opportunity.  We often shy away from doing things because we aren’t sure that we can.  Haven’t you done that before?screwdriver blog

I am now the proud owner of a Phillips Screwdriver.  You know, the one with criss-cross (sp?) slots? What happened was…….the wooden slide out “thing-a-ma-dingy” that holds my computer keyboard broke. My first thought:  “I’ve got to get somebody to fix this.” Instead of, “Oh, I can do it.”  Because, I didn’t see myself as a handy person; not as someone who could fix things.  But, then I got to thinking that I would have to spend the WHOLE DAY WAITING FOR SOMEONE ELSE to fix it and be totally inconvenienced all because I wasn’t willing to try to fix it myself.  And, that the only reason why I didn’t see myself as “handy” is ’cause I hadn’t tried to be “handy.”  Maybe, I was missing out on an untapped talent?

Well, I actually went to Home Depot and got my little 99 cents screwdriver and a small bag of screws.  Then, I pretended to know what I was doing.  One by one, my trusty screwdriver and I saved the day.  My keyboard slide out “thing-a-ma-dingy” is now fixed and my confidence is soaring!

In fact, I’m about to go check on the rest of the “loose screws” around the house.  Need any work done?
