You most likely opened this email thinking that I was going to pontificate on a political platform about Donald Trump.
Now, here me out, sunshine.
That is not what this message is about.
At all.

If you’ve been following me for a while or know me personally, you know that I try to garner some life lesson from every situation and every person I meet.

Good, evil.
Likable, unlikable.
Fortunate, unfortunate.
There are God-messages to be learned in everything.

So I only found it fitting to include a Monday Mentor Message from our current president, Donal Trump.

While there have been many a time I shake my head at one of his policies or too-many-to-count-inappropriate-tweets, I have to admit that I admire Trump’s ability to walk away during a negotiation.

You see, sunshine, whenever you are willing to walk away from a situation (it doesn’t have to be a business negotiation), you have the power for the situation to work in your favor.

As you know, most things I write about circle back to health, so let’s put this in the context of food.

Are you willing to walk away from the fridge or pantry after the “kitchen closes”?
If so, the situation works out in your favor and you are empowered with better health and stronger self-discipline!
Well done, good and faithful one!

While this relates easily to claiming your power over a plate of brownies, walking away from situations such as toxic relationships or jobs where you are undervalued or mistreated can be truly life-changing and life-giving, too.

Here’s the takeaway from this Monday Mentor Message from our 45th president, sunshine: sometimes walking away from a situation is the best action to take; if walking away doesn’t solve the problem, then “it” wasn’t what God planned for you anyway.

Is there something God is calling you to walk away from, sunshine?

Perhaps it’s time to lay it on the altar and let God deal with it on your behalf.

“God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
1 Cor. 10:13
