One thing I know for sure is I do and will make mistakes. Sometimes they are small and on occasion they are big. Just this week I made a whopper. It was one of those weeks when life hands you a whole lot , I was emotionally and physically burned out and was not as mindful I would be normally! There are wonderful lessons we can learn by being humbled from time to time. 🙂
Normally I know better to write anything in this kind of condition but I did anyway. I usually take better care of myself during times such as these but ignored my inner wisdom. I had my normal period of regret along with beating myself up and finally today I found the lesson and realized I had to let it go. Once again I learned to better listen to my inner voice when it is telling me I need rest instead of work.
This journey we are on does not always unfold as we would like and we are all given challenges along the way. There are always lessons in life to learn and it’s important that we realize we all make mistakes. They really are not mistakes at all if we are willing to learn from them and move forward.
Forgive yourself today, take yourself of the hook and learn the lesson. Life is much to short to spend too much time in regret. Mistakes only need to be a detour not a dead-end.
