Quote of the Day

Jump Over the Wall of Yourself.


Every once in a while I have to tell myself, “Jump over the wall of yourself.” Sorry I cannot recall the name of my Asian student while I was teaching on Guam. He wrote this remark in one of his papers during a Writing class at the University of Guam. I wish he knew how important what he wrote was for me. A friend was complaining yesterday and it reminded me of that quote. I thought if you would only get yourself out of the way, this wouldn’t be happening to you over and over. No, I didn’t say that. It reminded me though of how I also trip over myself at times. I have to remember to get out of my own way. My quote for the day, “Jump over the wall of yourself.” What does this mean to you?? How can you “jump over the wall of yourself”?
