As I look back on my life with the knowledge that I have now, I know that I have made many mistakes along the way. Some were big and others were small.

I am sure I am not alone when I say that I hate to even think that I made a mistake or did something wrong. The thought that perhaps I could have hurt someone’s feelings along the way does not go with my core values at all.

So many times we beat ourselves up about the mistakes that we did and the things that we should have rather done instead. Forgiving ourselves is often so much more difficult than forgiving someone else.

When we continue to beat ourselves up about past mistakes, all it does, is create on going stress for us. This then brings up feelings or emotions of anger, frustration or sadness.

As best you can, try to see the mistake as the past, and there is nothing that you can do to change that event. You can learn from it and be mindful of it for the present moment and for the future.

I try to think of these mistakes as a big pile of rocks. If I had to carry them around in a back pack on my back all the time, they would make me tired and wear me down. If I can release these rocks, my load will be lighter and the path ahead much easier to travel without all that past baggage.

I send you support to help you lighten your load.
