Today I had the occasion to examine some very important aspects of myself. In that examination I realized that I have been negligent in several ways and that negligence has caused pain for someone I love. Upon further reflection I also realize that it would be very easy for me go into a very dark place of self-recrimination and depression, negative self-talk and other self-defeating ways of being and thinking. I have made a different choice today. I have chosen to forgive myself and made a commitment to do better. This was a stretch for me and I am happy to say that, while not easy, I chose to forgive myself and move forward more consciously.
This weeks stretch: Forgive yourself. None of us is perfect and we are all capable of missing the mark. Notice where you can do better and make the commitment to choose again. ~ FD
