Ooooooooops… ✏

In my new position, I have to be very particular in how I word everyTHING. Like every “I” has to be dotted and every “T” crossed for accuracy. Making a mistake could be costly #yikes, so I aim to be correct. So, in a world where some strive for perfection, we have to remind ourselves that we are human and we can make mistakes, unfortunately. ?
A few weeks ago, I had to remind myself of this reality. ?

The best piece of advice I can share is to:
1. Always take ownership if it was your fault.
2. Learn from the mistake and correct it if possible.
3. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Life happens and eventually that mistake or wrong decision will be a distant memory. You may even be able to laugh at that mistake in the future.

Scripture reminds us that God realizes that all of have sinned and fallen short of his glory, (Romans 3:23) however I’m grateful that we don’t have to earn his grace, mercy or forgiveness and it is readily available for us to receive.

So I’m curious, what mistake have you made recently? Have you forgiven yourself yet?

Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.

Psalms 37:24 NLT

    I made a lot of mistakes just today! Lol I forgave myself and moved on. Life is too short to be hung up on the small stuff.

    I make mistakes everyday, but those mistakes help me to learn and grow into a better person.
