Pride cometh before a fall

I know this all too well.

You remember that really irresponsible thing I hinted at the other day? Yeah, well - it's taken care of now. I did the only logical thing and just fessed up.

I simply admitted the issue, accepted responsibility and said I was sorry. I also took the needed steps to correct the situation.

Hard to do? Oh HELL yeah. I have to tell you folks, I hate admitting when I've screwed up. Even more when it's because of not thinking, not planning, not using the brain God gave me.

But I also will not run away from that kind of thing. Oh, I used to. Many, many moons ago I'd flee in a heartbeat, rather than have someone look at me with pity (for bein' an idiot) or in anger (because my irresponsibility hurt them). Yep, I could flee with the best of 'em.

I'm still not gonna admit to y'all what I did. But I will tell you it's all because I got cocky. Yep - got a little to "full of myself" and just didn't look ahead or pay attention. After a long draught things have been going pretty good here in Tammi's World and I just forgot I still need to watch my P's and Q's.

That piece of humble pie I had to choke down yesterday was a little dry and a bigger bite than I like, but I've always believed you have to pay to play.

And I also know, from experience, if you let your pride get away with you something will happen to remind you.......to watch for that next step.

Ain't that the truth. Glad it's behind you now. Those kinds of things are always so hard.
