I know you know this, but it’s always good to remind ourselves that
life is messy
It’s not all neatly laid down and planned out for us to know exactly what we have to do.
Life is messy and chaotic.
But it’s within that mess that we find ourselves
We make mistakes.
We kick and scream.
We stamp our feet.
Or at least, I do.
We make wrong choices along the way.
And we make some good ones too.
It’s part of what we are here to do: to learn and to find what is right for us.
So beating ourselves up for the not-so-smart or even cringingly embarrassing moments we have had, is not going to teach us anything.
There is no graduation ceremony from the school of life.
No diploma to work towards.
It’s a never ending learning experience.
Which keeps on teaching us something new.
So we mustn’t give ourselves a hard time for not always making the right choices.
We don’t always get it right.
We won’t always get it right.
But we learn more about ourselves along the way.
And that’s why it’s so fascinating.
So sit back, get yourself comfy, and make the most of the ride.
