I’ve been generally trying to get on with life lately. It hasn’t always been easy.
One thing recently has stood out for me and has been a lesson that’s taken some learning.
“There are many things in life that are beyond your control. Your attitude is not one of them”
It was said to me when I was in a very slightly odd mood. I wasn’t feeling malicious as such, but I was being mean to someone and it wasn’t needful. Having had it pointed out to me, I realised it was a very good point and have spent time since assessing my attitude to quite a lot of things.
It’s not galling so much as humbling. Being reminded that I’m no better than anyone else and that I can afford to be a lot more gracious than I have been to a great many people.
I pray that I’ll not forget the lesson.
