Have you ever learned something new about yourself? Good or bad or as they say in the corporate world, a strength or an opportunity. lol
Well recently God showed me a couple of characteristics about myself and I realized sometimes I am not the solution to the problem because I am the problem. #ouch.
Before I share this, lets say it was a tough reality and caused me to examine several areas of my life and see what I can do to be better.
2 Things I Learned about Me
1. I can be selfish. So let me define this context of selfish. lol. Do I share with people or give to people in need, of course. However, I can be selfish as to where I am not always considering others when I make a decision. The first person I think about is me and the impact it will have on me. My solution for this is to ask others what they think when a decision is not only impacting me and then take a moment, listen and process what they are saying before I respond and consider their input.
2. I can talk a lot and some of the stuff I say, doesnt come out how I want it to. ??♀️ Well, I am working on that. It starts with learning how to be quiet. Just because I have an opinion, it doesnt mean I always have to share. Sometimes, we are put in situations to listen and to help someone else. I know I hate when people give me unsolicited advice, so I have to stop doing it to others. If you see me biting my tongue, just know I am practicing being quiet. I call it, the shut up spirit. Lol
Food for Thought
Knowing things about yourself is half the battle. Once you learn something, you have two options:
1. Take an action to counter correct it if needed.
2. Do nothing and keep making the same mistake over and over. #insanity
