I had a messy moment at work today.
My attitude needed adjusting and perfectionism tried to pick a fight with me–and at the same time, too!
I am a Christian, which means I don’t have to be controlled by feelings, but I’m also human.
Choosing to not react to my feelings and frustrations is tough.
The situation I faced was not a big deal at all. Some poorly written instructions collided with my first time using a computer program.
Despite the challenges, Step 1 of my project was completed.
The minor snafus of life are true tests of our ability to respond instead of react.
I didn’t fail the test, but I didn’t make an “A” either.
It’s easy for me to become cynical about whatever I perceive to be the problem.
Not everything, though, has to be a tragedy.
Most of the things that irritate me are small in scale. I just have to get over myself.
It’s not the end of the world to make mistakes, to mess up, to drop the ball.
What’s important is to learn from your mistakes and move forward.
Did you hear me?
Quit your pouting.
And if you can’t tell already, this post is more of a note to myself.
