At some point it will happen to you.

Rainy days. Flat tires. The worst case scenario. As the saying goes, it happens.

    Great piece. I especially liked the line: What if I’d responded to poor leadership better?
    And isn’t that true with relationships, with co-workers, with our own missteps and misdeeds? Patience, ah patience. Honesty, sure. Stuff we should pack in our bags as we walk this planet.
    Thanks for sharing.
