Running away from myself

This may never happen to you but, from time to time, I just want to run from myself.

For example, I was recently at a meeting with a group of community leaders who were exploring the launching of a new city project.

Of all the people in the room, my guess is I was the least qualified to speak.

Did that stop me?

Heck no. 

I jumped in with a “great idea.” Midway through my sharing, I recognized what I was saying was just a bunch of baloney.

As I looked around the table at the community leaders, a few offering sympathetic nods, I wanted to run away from myself. Jump out of my chair and head for the door.

At my ripe age, this should not happen. I’ll forgive myself tomorrow. 

But today, I’m still hiding out from me.
