Nadine…on making mistakes

I make mistakes.

All.The.Damn.Time.

You know, the usual kind like talking too much, or not enough.

Giving advice when it isn’t sought out; or withholding advice when it’s asked for. As the ‘Self-Appointed Life Coach to Many’ I am sure you can imagine how difficult it is finding the balance with this one!

Paying too much attention to something that Really does not deserve my attention;and ignoring something that does.

Focusing on really big stuff and completely overlooking the small.

A frequent Daddy-ism was, “The only time I ‘thought’ I was wrong I was wrong!” Ha. Funny not funny Daddy. He had his share of wrongs. And he admitted them frequently.

It is ok to make mistakes.

It is good to recognize when you do. And it is good to let yourself off the hook as well after you apologize to others. Apologize. Accept you are a little less than perfect and then move on.

My Momma sums it up with a frequent saying, “Don’t sweat the petty stuff and don’t pet the sweaty stuff…and it’s all small stuff!”

She’s right you know. She’s my Momma. And she’s always right. Except when Daddy said she was wrong!

So cut yourself some slack here. Take a little time and distance to figure out what went wrong. Apologize. Fix it if you can. And then move on.

And call me if you need advice. I am always here for you! Cold hands. Warm black heart.🖤🖤

Mistakenly and apologetically yours,

Nadine Bodine
