OK, I admit I sometimes feel like a pretty cool girl (then other days I have great awareness of what a nerd I am, but I digress). And I often think I have some pretty good stuff to offer others by way of experience, insight and advice. I hope I listen well. I really enjoy being in relationship with others, and I usually feel that I can hang with them in the coolness and insight departments. I also feel like I have a special corner in the "my life is difficult right now" department. Ewww...I'm being honest here...realize I am disgusted at the pride and arrogance I read in these words, like I expect you are. Yuck! Yuck!
Well, today I have discovered the blog of a friend who thinks like me and rambles in her writing like me, but so much better. This girl is so much cooler and insightful than I am (although she, unlike me, would probably disagree with this analysis, lol), and I so want to be her friend. I know I've said that about other people, but the difference is that we're already friends. But now I just want to sit down, listen to her talk, and LEARN from her. Empathize with her. Be reminded of all the many, many blessings I have, no matter how hard it might be right now. Be HUMBLED.
I like being humbled like this. Really. It feels good to move things closer to a right perspective.
