On Babies and Bathwater

I am pondering why it is so hard to remove the baby before throwing out the bathwater. We lose so much when it all goes out at once. We humans are so all or nothing. So black and white in our thinking. Sure, it takes wisdom and time to do that baby removal. To separate out the dirty and expendable from that which is living, breathing, beautiful and full of life.

Matt ran across this article today about this very thing as it pertains to manliness.

This gives me a challenge. What areas have I thrown out the baby as well? What am I missing out on in life because I have something good so hogtied to something bad? Where have a taken an all-or-nothing approach when baby steps... little changes... would have sufficed and been so much less frustrating and more successful? It's something to think about.
