Daily post: Sorry, I’m busy

This is asking me to scavenge around among my past failings (there have been many), pick one and beat myself up about it. And you know what? I’m not going to. If I could change them, I would in a heartbeat…

Or would I? Those I failed most have gone on to become strong, insightful, compassionate and resourceful members of society. Do I have the right now to mess with the balance of good and bad experience that made them the way they are?

This doesn’t excuse me for letting them down, but wallowing in guilt and regret is cripplingly counterproductive, and my responsibility now is to learn from my mistakes and make sure I do better in future.

Will I always succeed? No. Who does? But I’ll damn well give it my best shot.
