Self-Reflections: Forgiving myself takes away the disappointment of making mistakes

My mind is a powerful object, so I feed it with positive truths about myself. I tell myself that I am more than just my mistakes. Forgiveness curbs negative self-thought.

I am human in my dislike for the feeling that comes with making mistakes. There are victories that I envision myself celebrating. But I am careful to encourage myself even when I miss out on those victories because of mistakes.

Sometimes when I act based on emotion, I make hasty decisions. When they result in an unfavorable outcome, I take some time to replay the scenario in my head.

Once I am able to identify the source of my misstep, I begin the process of healing and forgiveness. It is okay to make mistakes once I am ready and willing to learn from them. Being human sometimes means erring in judgement.

Focusing on big goals involves putting aside smaller distractions for a while. Taking this approach allows me to concentrate and stand a greater chance of success.

Whenever things go unexpectedly due to my inability to focus, I take a deep breath and tell myself that it is okay. The more positive words I tell myself, the greater my resolve to dust myself off and start over.

Today, making mistakes is a part of my growth process. I am okay with learning from even my least favorite experiences. There is a lesson in each circumstance. My eyes and heart are wide open to learning for more positive outcomes in the future.
