Hey critters, creators, writers, and overall humans! How are this day? I didn’t know what I’d be talking about today, but then I realized I had made a mistake setting up my posts, so I thought it’d only be apropos to talk about forgiving yourself.
But first, if you have the time, go back read my last three posts in their entirety because they’re awesome but also because they’re visible, as before I’d unknowingly cut off the bodies of all three of them!
Anyway, that was a mistake I got out of the way. And really, mistakes are a big part of our lives. We can’t not make mistakes, but what we can do is control how we react to them.
Working on my book, I read a LOT of mistakes. And that’s okay. Just some more fun I can have working out the solution.
But really, if we sit with this feeling of I Fucked Up, it only drains us and makes us less creative. Even now as I write this, I’m judging myself because I feel like it sucks and I sound so sappy and geez why people even here? But that’s judgment, that’s not creativity. Forgiveness is this: Well that sucks. What’s next?
So when you fuck up and make a mistake today, just laugh it off. Or yell it off. But definitely accept it and shrug and own it.
And remember that there is no such things as mistakes. But that’s a lesson I have to fully learn. Yet.
P.S. Don’t forget the little things. As soon as I went looking for pics to put up, I found these gems from earlier this morning. Beauty is everywhere (all right I’m being sappy but I don’t care 😊).
Create and Complete!
