What the heck is Teadle Door Step? That’s what my husband said when I used that phrase. A phrase I grew up with that was used to describe the uneven cut of a piece of bread. You know the ones that you cut that are not perfectly even? That’s teadle door step. I don’t know if that is how she would have spelled it or not, but it works.
As Jane Fonda said, “We aren’t meant to be perfect. We are meant to be whole.” Maybe the challenge is in learning that perfect is actually elusive more than it is achievable, maybe we are meant to accept the abnormal and make it our normal? And I agree there are right ways and wrong ways to do things but I also agree that instinctually we fall back on our ‘rightness’ when we fail or are fearful to see the possibility of a less perfect yet equally as good method. What have you been holding on to and forcing that your team, your family or your partner isn’t buying…maybe it’s time to apply a bit of teadle door step methodology.
God Bless you Granny and your legacy…and thank you, thank you…thank you.
