Scrub Your Assumptions

March 26, 2014

in the generous life

The other day someone made an assumption about me that was … well, wrong. It was understandable and not particularly hurtful, but it got me to thinking about the assumptions that I have about others, and in particular my husband.

People do change over time and I don’t always get things right anyway. I need to be better about asking questions and giving my husband room to change and grow.

Not a bad life skill to have.

Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in. Alan Alda

I tried to get the menu planner and it says SOLD!

I clicked on the etsy shop links for the printables. (It’s a download (so she can’t run out), so I’m not sure why you got a sold sign. You might try using a different browser.) However, at the very bottom of the post are two free downloads. Click on the pictures and they download to your computer where you can print them off.

If you’re still having problems, email the shop owner. Click on her bolded name at the top of the page. It will take you to her shop. In the left hand column is a “contact shop owner” link.)

Good reminder! This is something that I struggle with sometimes. But I have to remember I do not always know why he said or did something. Instead of assuming I must have open communication with him to understand. I have learned it is okay to say, “I am trying to understand where you are coming from. Can you explain that more to me?”
