I just keep plugging along this path of awakening and making changes in my life. Progress not perfection is my goal. This morning I had an opportunity to speak my truth. The simple truth would have been enough but I added an unnecessary addendum that was not kind. I realized that I waited too long to say what needed to be said. I was trying to be patient and not let the matter bother me, big mistake on my part—when I made my request, my tone of voice and what I added to my request ended up being hurtful. As soon as possible, I apologized for my tone of voice and what I added to my request and asked for forgiveness.
It’s so important that we pay attention and not fall into the trap of being complacent about our needs and think to ourselves, “I can be patient and not let this bother me.” But….guess what it bothered me more than I realized until I watched and heard myself being mean.
Today, I can soothe my soul and gently remind myself that I’m still learning. There’s always more to learn. Always more, in more ways than one. Always!!!
