I Hate It When I Do That!
Could there be a reason we make mistakes and accidentally goof up? When we drop our cell phone on the cement and it breaks, when we accidentally run that red light because we were distracted, when we show up for a meeting 30 min late because we didn’t double check our calendar and… These things can teach us an important lesson. Instead of beating ourselves up, instead of letting it make us mad or ruining our day, we should remind ourselves that these incidents are lessons to be gentle with others when they make mistakes. Nobody is perfect, including ourselves. That’s OK! Just remember to take a deep breath (maybe a few… ) and be patient with others (and ourselves) when we are having one of those ?X?!@ moments – even when it messes up our plans or our schedules.
