Speaking of Manners

...I just loved this post from DaMomma, titled Shouting the Obvious. I admire her ability to step back from the situation (the first situation she mentions would have made me completely apoplectic) and put herself in someone else's shoes. She applies insight from an unpleasant experience to a completely different circumstance and it allowed her to be kinder and more patient with another human being. I think that's just beautiful.


  1. Wow wow wow.

    "Relishing my rightness". That has really resonated with me.

  2. I KNOW! I read it and found myself thinking about how often I respond to a situation based on my desire to be right. How often people do things or behave certain ways because being right just feels good? It's a thought provoking piece.

  3. i love the things you bring to my attention. i adore your blog.

  4. Wow, I'm going to remember that angry angry man the next time I'm tempted to go off on someone.

    And make the effort to "not be that guy".

  5. Thank you lisachelle!!!

    I'm glad this touched a chord with so many people. I had such a strong reaction to it, myself.
