Our beloved Denver Broncos are having a meltdown. Dropped passes, fumbles, revolving quarterbacks and schemes that aren’t working. From Super Bowl winning greatness to tough guys crying on camera and coaching staff out the door. Such is the NFL.
If you’ve ever had a meltdown – or a zillion of them – then I’m quite sure you understand what is happening. Meltdowns are the product of not dealing with our sh*t. Unmet needs, self-denial, over-hyped expectations all covered up with a stinking pile of apathy. Until your body says: ENOUGH. And all Hell breaks loose. Crying on camera seems pretty mild compared to the average meltdown.
Meltdowns are necessary if you hope to move on to better things. Hopefully our Broncos see it this way too. Your body very kindly overrides your monkey brain and takes care of business for you. Shaking, crying, vomiting, other bodily releases is how you dump an overload of stress. It’s called Detox. Sure, you feel like sh*t when you are in the midst of it and then. . . whoa!. . .suddenly the world looks bright again. Phoenix rising from the ashes. Use your purge wisely and re-think the direction you are going. It is the time to make serious changes. Oh you will still have meltdowns from time-to-time, but it is normal and you will live through them.
After all, there will be another Super Bowl to win.
