I caught myself today being something/someone other than who I really want to be. It was not a big thing, I doubt my wife or son even thought about it. But I realised it was not who I want to be, not how I want to act. I want to be different, better, more giving and understanding, less taking and complaining.
I made a mental note of the moment, in hopes it would help me to do differently the next time I am in a similar situation. Given my reaction was common for me, I know I have a battle to make this change. If I want in enough, I will manage to change.
Ever catch yourself being other than you want to be?
