If you read last week’s Weekend Fun post, you’ve probably been trying to stop saying those 5 Things You Should Not Say if You Want to be Humble. How’s it working for you?

If my eyes are glued to my own problems and plans, I will not truly see the needs and interests of others. It isn’t that I don’t want to–I really do care about other people. It is just that sometimes there doesn’t seem to be much brain-power left after I deal with myself and my stuff. Have you noticed that self-absorption is a consuming state of mind?
