In response to my decision-making woes, a friend from many many years ago reminded me how good I was at telling him what he should be doing. Ugh! Too true and too horrible to be reminded of. Always have an opinion, always have a different way, something to say. Bossy as if I know what is better for anyone else.
So that would be like putting myself in someone else's shoes and telling them what to do. I just feel shame at the truth of how pushy I can be. I see that often in my relationship with my kids and I remember my mom being the same way.
Another reminder that I am an imperfect human being with so much to learn and there will always be a need for humility and awareness. I am grateful for those times I can observe opportunity.
We have been talking for a while about going out to dinner together and we finally made it happen tonight. Yummy Mexican food.
