More Reflections on Failure


Yesterday, I blogged about how I suck at everything, oh, woe is me, but today, I have yet another interesting example. This morning, while backing out of the garage, it seemed that I was going out at an angle. Not a big deal for most, but for me, apparently, it was a deal breaker. I would rather not go into the embarrassing details, but let’s just say that I scratched the front of a new car that’s not even mine. Needless to say, the owner of the car was not pleased, and I was so upset that I went on a full-blown, tearful self-deprecating rant. Because it could have been prevented so easily, so, so easily. It was so stupid. It’s one of those things that could have made World’s Dumbest. I am grateful, of course, that no serious damage was incurred and no one was hurt. But I think it’ll be a few more days at least before I can look back on this as a funny memory.

Well, there’s a lot to be learned from this. The lesson is somewhere, I can feel it. One lesson is probably that I should stop hesitating so much to ask for help. That is a major problem I have. The other is that I’m an idiot- but God loves me anyway. I must remember that I am a useful idiot, who hopefully has a place in the world, and, much more importantly, the kingdom. And at the end of the day, that’s what matters.

    People get in accidents every day by the hundreds. That’s why there’s such a thing as car insurance. It doesn’t make you an idiot. It makes you normal.
