Today I will remember the impact of my communication and behavior on my wife, Hope. That’s her in the picture above.
Isn’t she such a sweetie-pie?
My moods and choices matter. Actually, they probably matter more to her than to me. There’s a thought to really consider. I can so easily ruin her day by making a few bad choices, which I am prone to make.
Today I will remember to consider Hope
– and how much I love her – over my own self-centered desires. Sure, we are all selfish creatures but selfish and self-centered are two different things.
Being self-centered mentally deletes Hope from my decision-making process. The results can be disastrous. I do not want to be self-centered because: 1) I hurt other people when I act that way and 2) I hurt myself when I hurt others that I care about.
