The saying better late than never seems to be apropos in my life as of late. An important life lesson I am embracing is to just “own it.” If I mess up, make a mistake, or totally miss the mark I now just own it.
No longer do I waste emotional energy on hiding or feeling shame. I acknowledge, learn and release. I remember an old episode of Different World when a therapist encouraged Whitney to “Relax, relate and release.”
It’s along those lines. It’s refreshing and a relief. An “I screwed up” or an “I’m sorry” is a much better choice than the alternative of burying yourself in more drama.
Today I am thankful ..
- My Nativity set is out; that makes it officially the holiday season
- A delightful day of busyness
- A couple of great belly laughs today
Life is complex enough. Make it as easy on yourself as you can.
affectionately yours, Laura
