Alert! Growth Opportunity Ahead

 

Mistakes happen for a reason. Now I know when you’re in the middle of having something horrible happen to you it doesn’t feel good. A lot of times you feel like “how did this happen to me?” or  "I can’t believe I messed up so bad, what is wrong with me?”  Self blame. Criticism.  The ego always goes to self blame, never to what we can learn from this episode. Just remember that blame only comes from the ego - it doesn’t come from your source. Or your spirit self. There is no blame from Spirit. Everything is a lesson. And no I’m not saying if a terrible natural disaster or other tragedy occurs that there is some meaning or reason for that. I don’t pretend to know everything. I think sometimes just bad things happen. And we can't explain them. The blunders I’m talking about are if you make a mistake at work that ends up costing you your job or you gave a report to a client that you thought was fantastic but they said it was way off base. Ugh. Red-faced.  Embarrassed. Angry. The times that leave a trail of nausea in the pit of your stomach and make you feel about 2 inches high. These boo boo's happen to everybody but at the time it can certainly feel like we are all alone in our mistakes.

 

And accompanying this feeling there’s usually a sense of shame and regret associated with it. Note to self: These things are your souls warning signs to **pay attention** b
