I had a very tough day and tried to get supplies for the clogged commode at home. After I was done shopping, I put them in the cart and stopped near my car. As I was transferring the items into the car, I looked back and did not see the cart. It had simply disappeared! I looked around for the cart and called my husband. He asked how I could be so careless and casual and mentioned that this had not happened in his many years of shopping. I listened and felt he was right in a way, and it was important to pay attention. Later I found that the cart had rolled over to the other side of the parking lot since I had parked at an elevated level. That evening after my husband returned, he joked as to how there is often an adventure when I go out! We just laughed. This lightness and friendly vibe would not have been possible if I had defended myself and pointed to many other incidents, like keeping our Honda Odyssey trunk door open the whole night after doing groceries.🙂
Be patient with criticism.
