Well this past week has been in many ways a tough blow to my self esteem. I don't like to make mistakes - I don't like to NOT be able to do something - to grasp something. I most certainly don't like to admit I have done things wrong - made mistakes.
We are supposed to learn from our mistakes and move forward - hopefully not making the same mistakes twice. I have discovered this week that I haven't exactly learned from previous mistakes. "Why?" I keep asking myself. " Why why why??"
W has been supporting me - pointing out the obvious. I am not alone in making mistakes - there are safe guards in place (at work) and supposedly when I make mistakes these safe guards are supposed to catch them. I didn't catch them.. they didn't catch them....... now someone else has to pay the consequences. And the worst part - it isn't the first time I have made these mistakes.... you'd think I'd learn.
Then I was looking for some inspirational thought / saying for today's post and came across the pic at the top.
It made me stop and think. I am human. I get distracted and flustered. I am not perfect. I have my strengths and my weaknesses. I make mistakes. Acceptance is the first step forward in correcting behaviours.
Hopefully tomorrow I will make "better mistakes" ... Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to forgive myself my weaknesses.. my mistakes. Hopefully I will learn from this.......
