Mistakes Don’t Define Us –
Dear WordPress Friends,
I thought of personalizing this post with each and every one of your names, but I guess just “WordPress Friends” is fine, this time.
So, I’ll just jump right in…
I’m so glad that mistakes don’t define us!
1). I decided to sell my house on impulse, and live in a van so I could be free, like a bird. Bathrooms shouldn’t be a problem because there are outhouses everywhere. Right…? Ya, wrong. 😯 Oops… Bad mistake.
2). When I got mad at my $3,500.00 laptop for deleting the longest, most heartfelt letter I’d ever written in my entire life, I finally did what I have always threatened to do: I threw my device out of the highest window I could possibly find. (It didn’t feel as good as I thought it would).
Had it actually hit that guy walking by, I would have been wearing a bright orange jumpsuit for a loooong time. (Just on a side note, I look terrible in bright orange). ☹️ (Really, no one was hurt, except my laptop). Still… bad mistake.
3). I accidentally cut off a cop on the freeway. You know, they don’t like that. I mean, I didn’t know it was a cop, at the time (how could I possibly know that it wasn’t just a normal white car with a few black, bold streaks painted on it to make it look fancy? I believe I was unfairly tricked). Still… bad mistake.
It’s fine; I still love Police Officers for keeping us safe from criminals, killers, and terrible drivers.
These are just a few stupid mistakes I’ve made, but don’t worry, I have tons more.
It’s true that our mistakes don’t define us, but some of them can certainly have long-lasting consequences.
Hugs to all,
