We all make mistakes.

We all say things that we wish we could have taken back.

As the song says, “Regrets, I have a few.”

We all do.

Disappointments are a part of life.

There are times when we have got it wrong.

Times when others have wronged us.

Times when we are just desperately unlucky.

But they’re moments.

They don’t have to become monuments.

We don’t have to build memorials to those times when life hasn’t gone according to plan.

We don’t have to stay in that place of hurt.

We don’t have to turn a bad day into a bad week or a bad year.

Dust yourself off.

Forgive (yourself and others).

Smile.

Keep going.
