Past Mistakes

Free yourself from your past mistakes, by forgiving yourself for what you have done or went through. Every day is another chance to start over. – Unknown

I tend to let my past mistakes consume me at times.  See, I’m not very good at forgiving myself, and I’m very, very good at beating myself up.  It’s not really a skill I want to have, nor is it a skill I want anybody else to have.  The only thing worse than obsessing over past mistakes is negative self talk.

I don’t know why other people do it to themselves, and I don’t know why I do it to myself.  I don’t know why I get hung up over past mistakes when I know, just like you know, that tomorrow is a new chance to start again.  I think we’re all really good at forgiving other people for mistakes they may have made.  Do you hold on to the fact that your three year old spilled her milk at dinner?  No, you clean it up, you let her know that it’s okay, it’s just an accident, you get a new glass of milk and you move on.

Don’t you deserve the same kind of forgiveness? You do, and so do I.  Work hard to forgive yourself and let go of past mistakes. You get to start again with every new day.
