Life is full of unexpected challenges and an ever-growing to do list.
These will inevitably lead to frustration and irritation at some point.
I was there a few weeks ago.
A wise friend recently told me, “Give yourself some grace.”
As I thought about this, I realize how arrogant it is to claim to have all of the answers.
Or to continue to add to the to-do list and to not take anything off. That’s the same effect.
While I would not say this out loud, in my actions I often reflect this attitude : ”Do you have a task or project? Of course I can do it. Even if I only give it 20% of the time and attention the project deserves, I can do it. Yes, I’m that good.”
Terrible isn’t it.
But I know there is hope.
I have a feeling I am not alone in this struggle; that we can come together as a community.
There is ALWAYS hope.
Humility destroys arrogance.
So I humbly ask you, the reader, for your help.
Have you ever fallen into the “I can do it all” myth? What did you do to resolve this? Please leave your thoughts in the comments.
