Double checking my thoughts and perceived quick wit, to make sure I’m actually edifying the person I’m responding or speaking to. Ensuring that I’m not leaking. Leaking hurt, from the person I’m speaking to and/or from another. Because you know the saying hurt people, hurt people.
Maybe there’s some truth in that. Maybe my perceived inability to be consistent in the one thing I’ve been called to do, is just that. My fear of success. I’ve been distracted with my excuses. Distracted with my fear. And that ends today. I’ve decided to disconnect to reconnect.
With each day we learn something new. As we teach our children, they teach us too. After all, just because we’re adults it doesn’t mean we have it all figured out.
I’m learning, that some tables need to be flipped; others not so much. This year, I’m going to pay closer attention to my actions and reactions. Making sure that when I’m wrong, I’m owning it without justification.
I refuse to get caught up on things I can’t change. The things of the past have come and gone. There’s nothing I can do to change them. After all, those very things made me who I am today.
