“You’re on the right track now, rumbling along.
Hear the sound of sing song, sing song.
The rail you are traveling does not have a glitch.
Your train stays on the rail, and won’t go to the ditch.

The cars run behind you, all in a row,
The baggage car last, just let it go.
Supplies are within you, all that you need.
You need never beg, you need never plead.

There is a destination, not to worry about that.
It’s the journey that counts and that is a fact.
Pleasures untold, this journey brings,
Happiness, Love, Laughter and Joy . . . among other things.”

I learn from mistakes and give thanks for my growth.

Monday, October 19, 2015

Mistakes are part of the human learning experience. I may say things unskillfully and hurt other people. Others may have made errors that hurt me as well. When I learn to see mistakes as lessons, with compassion and forgiveness, I let go of resentments and move on.
I do not allow the error to increase its impact by holding grudges or allowing negativity to fester. I do not condemn or shame others or myself. Instead, I employ the tool of forgiveness as soon as I notice hurt or regret arise within me. I engage in forgiveness by recognizing my feelings, releasing the need to punish or be right, and letting it go. I seize the transformative opportunity human error offers and give thanks for my growth.

Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”—Luke 23:34
