05 Aug Are You Forgiving Of Yourself?
“Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil; With them forgive yourself.” Shakespeare
We often magnify our mistakes by dwelling on them and beating ourselves up over them. Time and energy squandered. Instead, take the learning, forgive yourself, and move on. Everyone who is growing makes mistakes and experiences failure. But it’s not really a failure unless you quit.
Everything we learn to do, we learn by making mistakes. Think if babies gave up on learning to walk after falling down a few times. You don’t see toddlers throwing up their hands and saying, “oh well, I guess I wasn’t meant to be a walker.” They keep trying and falling down many times and eventually become very successful walkers!
Today, take the learning from your mistakes and seemingly bad choices, forgive yourself and move on. Live today well, not dwelling in what may have happened yesterday.
