One of the greatest lessons my parents ever taught me is not make assumptions. I do have a nasty habit of trying to deduce something based on a limited amount of evidence and — yes — make a judgment based on an assumption. I’d like to think that I’ve gotten better at keeping an open mind (and be able to revise my judgment) after I graduated high school and moved on in life.
I don’t know where it would fit, but I think it’s worth also not making unrealistic expectations. I guess I don’t know what I was hoping to accomplish this weekend, but I have only myself to blame for the fact that reality fell short of my expectations.
I guess I’m trying to say that I didn’t make it to the bridge walk today.
