Tonight I spent a couple of hours fusing and playing around with this blog. Trying to figure out how to enhance it, add a slide show and cool features like that. It took some time, but I finally got it to work. If at first you don't succeed...read the directions.
Unfortunately, I seem to have a knack for doing things the hard way. I often joke with my husband that I don't have to read the instructions because I know he will, and then I can just ask him.
I wonder how much easier things would be, if I started with the directions first. I know I would finish most things lots faster. Is this tendency to go it alone specific to me, or is it just human nature?
I wish it was only on trivial things like creating a blog or learning Photoshop that I end up finally resorting to the manuel. Unfortunately, my ready, aim, fire nature is also all too evident when it come to my walk with Christ.
How many times do I try and just figure it out myself, rather than opening The Manuel and asking for his guidance? You'd think after all these years, I would learn from my mistakes...
