As a teacher and eternal student, I have been in a context where it’s all about more knowledge, more information, more research – just more data. Well, I guess it’s also getting A’s and more advance degrees. It’s built into my life. I have a doctorate in education. It’s my job and it’s my passion. I am curious and I just need to know. I want to learn. I want to figure it out. I need more information.
But that is not true. I have lots of information. You get to the point where you can make stuff up and get it published. It’s not a bad deal to make up information – that no one else is making up – and legitimately do so.
I need more grace. I need to be more gracious. There’s something so cool about it. It’s what makes you classy – IMO. Grace makes you a gentleman. I got knowledge, and I want more – but I need more grace.
It’s just a part of my identity.
