Data and Facts – Problem Solving Series – Session 3

Data and Facts can be confused or mixed in the wrong way when we are trying to solve a problem.  Put simply, data is about counting and reporting.  This can be how often something does or does not happen and can often be categorized and put into groupings.  Facts are reports and descriptions of things … Continue reading Data and Facts – Problem Solving Series – Session 3

Taking the first step amidst our trials

Waiting on the Lord - Jeffrey R. Holland https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DVpRFRFKME We get so tired with our desire to wear diapers.  Something that has been placed on our shoulders that we didn’t ask for. How long do we wait for relief? So many of our questions surrounding diapers begin with “Why?”  We ask why a trail or … Continue reading Taking the first step amidst our trials

What the GEMBA?! – Problem Solving – Session 2

How we view problems, and then how we choose to attack them speaks volumes about who we are.  Thomas Edison is attributed with saying, “I didn’t fail.  I just found 2,000 ways not to make a lightbulb.  I only needed to find one way to make it work.” When we are able to recognize problems … Continue reading What the GEMBA?! – Problem Solving – Session 2

There will be bread

General Conference October 2020 - Saturday Afternoon Session - Bishop W. Christopher Waddell Calamities and trials WILL come in our lives.  They can be personal or general in nature, and vary in severity and impact.  Diapers find themselves, in my own life at least, on both sides of this conversation.  They have been the trial, … Continue reading There will be bread

The burdens we choose to bear alone (when we don’t have to)

More often than not we choose not to leverage the power of the Gospel in our lives.  We make the choice to let go of the Iron Rod, and stumble in the dark.  This life is about gaining our mortal bodies, and learning through our own experiences and choices.  Through our strife, our troubles, our … Continue reading The burdens we choose to bear alone (when we don’t have to)

Problem Solving (a series) – Beginning

I’m beginning a series of workshop classes that will span over the coming months.  I really enjoyed working through a previous series (Heart-to-Heart), and drawing parallels to my ABDL life.  While I’m sitting here with CEOs, directors, and other leaders talking about their expectations of the coursework I am also drawing links in my own … Continue reading Problem Solving (a series) – Beginning

Barely eaten ice cream (Why we do things)

My children, like many others, are drawn to our local ice cream shop.  We drive past it most days, and so it constantly presents itself to my kids.  Luring them in for an escape, a taste of something sweeter than they typically consume on a daily basis.  I, like most other parents, limit the times … Continue reading Barely eaten ice cream (Why we do things)

Feeling sick brings out the little in me

I’ve been noticing in the past few months that when I don’t feel physically good that I turn to diapers as part of my recovery methods.  I have suffered from migraines my entire life, and lately they have been bad.  I wake up with them, so it is hard to determine a trigger.  I have … Continue reading Feeling sick brings out the little in me

Being SMART with diapers

The longer I continue down this path of self-acceptance, understanding, and incorporating diapers into my life the more I see the relevancy of making goals or mapping out where I am heading.  To quote Alice’s exchange with the Cheshire Cat in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvbsJ8brtN4 “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought … Continue reading Being SMART with diapers
