CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
So yesterday had quite a few instances of suck. Nothing awful, but kinda one of those days. Late leaving the house because we had to prep for a last-minute showing. Got a call from Doggy Camp that the dog has diarrhea and needs to go to the vet. Leave work and go sit at the vet for a couple hours. Turns out she’s contagious and can’t go back for a week, so there goes my lunch for the next week. Take her home, back to work, stay late, come home, clean up diarrhea…
I say all that not to have a pity party for me, but to point out kind of how minor all that stuff is in the big picture… However, the biggest suck turned out to be my attitude. I was convicted by something I saw on Facebook of all places. Just a little platitude on a cloud background, but it was appropriate, and it rang true: You can’t always choose your circumstances, but you CAN always choose how you react to them. I had reacted poorly. Selfishly. I didn’t come out and blow up in some way I would regret later, but I just seethed away inside. It’s pride. It’s sin. And it just eats away at your soul, taking your eyes off the mark.
So don’t let things control you. Take control. Choose how you react when the crap hits the fan (or splatters on the wall, as the case may be).
Bittersweet Q this morning… It’s great to lead a great group of HIMs, but hate that the opportunity came at Bagger’s expense. Speedy recovery to you, Sir!
