Happy Thanksgiving. Tell everyone your stories today.
I make a lot of mistakes. A goal I have is when I get to a rocking chair on my front porch and there is a child on my lap asking me questions. They ask did you ever do that. I can say yes and tell a story about my experience. Either how I screwed it up or how I screwed it up and then got it right. Does not matter to me which story I tell.
Just imagine, sitting there and the only response you have is no. I was watching the news the day I had a chance to try that.
The few things I did not try, I still have a story about the fear that held me back.
I like telling the stories about how I walked through my fear, instead of the stories of how the fear crippled me.
My friend Todd Weaver at Webe Radio posted this on Facebook this morning.
Being overly critical of your self not only stunts personal growth, but it also invites others to be overly critical of you as well. Instead of choosing to self-incriminate, learn to self-evaluate! Be kind to yourself; learn from your mistakes and evolve accordingly.
This is good advice. Putting ourselves or someone else down takes no effort. That is why it is so prevelant. To make ourselves fell good society has turned it into a virtue. It is not humility to put yourself or anyone else down.Matthew 6:16 “Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
