What does “laying down swords” mean? Here’s what it means to me.
Last night, as I’m struggling to edit a video on my smartphone, squinting and frustrated with the small screen, my husband says,
“Why don’t you use your tablet?”
I know sometimes the simplest answers are right in front of me. It takes someone saying something with simple clarity to get it. And I’m better off for it. And I’m thankful.
Know what I mean?
Recently I overheard a conversation about a video someone didn’t like. They had chosen to stop watching this informational video because they didn’t not agree with a small statement (which was not the purpose of the video). I thought this was interesting. Intrigued, I popped over and watched the video. It was enlightening, and I didn’t necessarily agree with everything but I certainly learned some things. Had I stopped at the beginning, I would not have learned anything.
Personally I find it very interesting to surround myself with people I don’t always agree with on everything.
