Someday I won’t be able to drive/crash my car, today is NOT that day!
My kids are threatening to take away my license away and I can’t say that I blame them! I am mortified to admit that I’ve backed into 2 parked cars in the last 2 weeks. One was parked directly behind me and both were done with friends watching. Good grief! I was starting to really worry about myself and then my girlfriend (who has had 2 similar experiences recently) said that we get distracted easily because we’re super fun. 🙂 I’ve decided I prefer her perspective to the self shaming thoughts I was having. From the wise words of Les Brown, “Give yourself a break. Stop beating yourself up! Everyone makes mistakes, has setbacks and failures. You don’t come with a book on how to get it right all the time. You will fail sometimes, not because you planned to, but simply because you’re human. Failure is a part of creating a great life. Stand up to it and handle it with grace. Because, YOU CAN.” If failure means you’re human than I must be “super human”! Clearly I’m easily distracted, my focus never waivers however when it comes to putting everything I am into trying to create a great life for my family. So today instead of beating myself up, I’m going to handle this mess I made with grace and give myself a break.
Today was a failure and it’s okay!
