Today’s episode will help you get out from behind the toilet bowl (or the crap) in your life. If you’ve ever had an accident or made a mistake, this is how to turn your mess into a message.

My dear, sweet, little rescue Yorkie, Stela, inspired this S.O.L. Story.

After peeing on my bed, we had a very intense conversation. She felt so badly about what she had done that she couldn’t even look at me.

Next thing you know, I find her hiding behind the toilet bowl.

I went into the bathroom and we had another discussion.

This is what I said to her…

“What are you doing behind that toilet? You made a mistake. You’re bigger than this. You know the truth about who you are. Don’t allow this to define you.”

“C’mon, get out from behind that toilet.”

Oftentimes this is how we are as humans.

If you’ve ever had an accident or done something out of your character for you, you know how this feels.

We all have moments when things happen. We make decisions that perhaps weren’t the best choice.


Are you going to allow it to define you?

Are you going to hide or stay down?

Are you going to hide behind your crap?

If this is you…my dear, you’re bigger than this! Get out from behind the toilet bowl.

Stand up. Make a decision. Let it go.

It’s behind you now.

Remember, you are NOT the mess!

You’re going to take the mess, and create a message of hope that inspires you to rise up.

Get your hopes up and start again.

Remind yourself of who you are!
