My Way or The Highway

I have a confession to make. For as long as I can remember I have liked things to go my way. Who doesn’t right? (My mom says I could argue with a brick wall)

But I feel I take it to the extreme at times.

Yesterday, I found myself in a staff meeting doing something I can’t believe. There were some disagreements in approaches and I found myself…well it’s embarrassing…I was…


Things were not going my way and I didn’t like it.

I’m a grown man and there I was getting all upset. I might as well have just gone to the corner and sat with my legs crossed and puckered my lips.

Funny thing, no one noticed. So, if I was trying to make a point, the point was missed.

Why is it so hard to take criticism?

Why is it so hard to let others win?

Why do we have to do everything our way?

Some of the most important things in my life I have learned from being wrong and someone else being right.

I need to remember that.

So I repent for being a punk, little kid who had to have it “his way or the highway!”

What do you need to let go of?
