Falling down

Being human means making mistakes.  It's part of life, as much as we all wish it wasn't.  We all say and do things we wish we hadn't, and then, we have to find a way to pick up the pieces, clean up the mess, make amends and move on.

There are three important parts of undoing our mistakes.  The first is to forgive ourselves.  If we can't, why should anyone else?  The second is to ask for forgiveness, and be patient if it isn't immediately forth coming.  The last is to commit to changing our behavior.  This doesn't mean we will never make another mistake, but it means that we reject old behaviors and embrace the idea that we can improve ourselves.

So for anyone I have hurt, I am sorry.  To anyone looking for change, I support your decision. Change is in the air, and it is up to us all to embrace changing things for the better.  This means letting go of anger, fear, guilt, shame, and jealousy.  It means banding together, rather than being splintered into factions.  it means accepting and giving love to ourselves, our fellows and our world.
