Mistake ( M for #A2ZChallenge2018 )

Oh dear, is there anything new I could say about mistakes?

We should own them. We should learn from them. Humans make them.

All the stuff that’s said to make us feel better, move on and …

… and what?

Not let our self-esteem suffer. Gain some self-esteem?

I’ve made a couple of mistakes in my life. Some are less serious some are plainly stupid.

There was a time when I thought about them pretty much every day and I let the guilty feelings rule my life. I can’t say that I have it all covered now. Can’t say that I own them all and have forgiven myself. But I am certainly not a slave to them anymore.

That’s a good feeling.  I think I might leave it at that and maybe post a poem before moving on:


Forgive yourself

Forget the mistake.

Overall you learned.

Regretting or



Vulnerabilities are part of

Everybody’s life.


You choose your

Overall theme

Under which your

Rightful life

Suffers or gains.


Let your soul



Not my best. Not my worst. And we’ll survive 😉
