Always room for growth

This week I failed some tests.  And I did it in style:

  • I thought I had a lot of patience.  But I needed to acquire quite a bit more.
  • I thought I was a thankful person.  But I needed to learn to appreciate more.
  • I thought I could do without a bunch of earthly comforts.  But I needed to learn to be truly happy despite having none.
  • I thought I understood that we all need each other.  But I needed to reach out just a little  bit more. 
  • I thought I had a positive attitude.  But I needed to be reminded that sometimes mine just sucks.
Yup, this week was all about being outside the comfort zone for me.  Leaking water pipes; unreliable plumbers; leaking water pipes progressing to burst water pipes; flooded rooms; wet everything; burst water pipes leading to no running water at all; no electricity; ice cold basin baths on dark, freezing winter's mornings; cancelled group training classes due to a lack of interest...  And the list goes on.  And I must say, my handling of it was less than stellar.  Yup, there's definitely always room for growth!

  1. Holy smokes! You have had it rough! Sometimes it's nice to step back and look at how you handle certain situations so you can make changes for next time. I think I would have handled it in a manner less than stellar too! And you're right, there is always room for growth!
