The answer is blowing in the wind some days. Fast on the heels of yesterday’s post, I get to practice my ability to be accountable. Some days my job can be a bit out of control due to personalities involved. I get to test my theory that if one is accountable for one’s actions then the best outcome should unfold.
I am frustrated some days with people who say they want to be better and have the best interests of those they serve at heart and then behave in a different manner when the situation is challenging. Tomorrow I get to see if I am accountable. I am asking myself hard questions such as can I be accountable with grace and mercy? Can I suspend judgment and still be accountable? Can I own my own errors and know that not everyone else will?
It is interesting to me that I want to find a way to the high road without seeming high and mighty about it. This is an improvement for me, born perhaps out of the shame work that I have been doing and reading about. Can I be accountable without the need to shame the other person? I ask for the grace to do this tomorrow.
