Life Lessons

Today I was talking to my boss. He said something about trying to figure me out, that he was watching the way I responded to some things that had happened the last few days. I'm not always successful at these, but I told him that I am working on trying to live by two things:

  1. Keep short accounts. The longer hurts go without a response or an attempt to reconcile, the bigger, badder, messier they become.
  2. We judge ourselves by our intentions. We judge others by their actions. My hope here is that I am learning to give grace and not assume ill motive where any wasn't intended.
What about you? Do you have one or two life lessons you try to live by?
