I was speaking with one of my daughters on the phone and she made a statement about how 'it wasn't a bad thing, but these situations come up often in my life'. I agreed, and it hit me again; hard.
What I do know now for certain is I did my best. At these very specific moments in time, I chose what I thought was best. Nothing I do is willy-nilly, I think, some might say over think and others (Ed) say 'thoroughly' think but I think and I act on that thought.
I make mistakes as we all do and my best varies; Yesterday my best was pretty good, the day before, not so much...
Today is another day and I will do my best...
...and it will be enough!
I hope this message helps someone else who carries guilt for the of the could've, should've,
would've(s) that ultimately if you did your best on any given moment that it WAS good enough.
Today, the day after, I am still letting this all sink in. Old habits die hard, but for today I am going to do my best to forgive myself and try to remember I have done my best.
I love you all from the depths of my soul and am so very grateful for our connections today and always.
May the Spirit of loving kindness shine on you on this glorious early spring day!
