There have been so many times that I have lost my cool over a trivial mistake I’ve made! I beat myself up and feel disgusted with myself. Perhaps you’ve done the same thing a time or two. What makes the situation even worse is then I become a grump around my husband and children. Because I have worked myself into a foul mood, it infects them as well. Perhaps we need to remind ourselves that we need to be able to laugh at some of our mistakes.
Sometimes, we take ourselves too seriously!! Often, we feel we have to be “right” all the time. Many times in the past, my pride has kept me from being able to laugh at myself when I made an error. How about you? Are you too serious? Are you a perfectionist?
These days, I’m trying to let go of my pride and admit I’m a human being who isn’t perfect 100% of the time! You know what I’ve found? Everyone, including my husband, seems to like me better. Humility is such an attractive quality. Psalm 18:27 says “You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.” Let’s work on being humble this week. When we mess up, and we will, let’s LOL.
