note to self

Today was not the best of days. It was one of those which if you have a choice, you’d like to redo over. But you can’t. Mistakes happen, and should happen. Nothing is ever perfect, so are you. Please know that mistakes do not define the entirety of your being. But what you do about them gives you the opportunity to realize what you are capable of. And what you do about them tells you more about yourself than the actual mistakes committed. Be humble enough to accept your misgivings; ask pardon, ask for understanding. If you still can, correct them. Make amends. But realize that being pardoned does not give you the ticket to commit mistakes over and over again. Be better than who you are when erred. Strive harder. After facing the truth and correcting the errors, love yourself enough to move on. Let go of the pain, anger, the self-hate. Let it just be a reminder but do not dwell on what was done. Look ahead. Today is just one of the many days. And right now, at this very moment, this may just be one of your best.

P.S. Smile! You know who you are, you know who you are not and you are okay.
