Graceful Mistakes – Wise Words Wednesday

Graceful Mistakes – Wise Words Wednesday


There is no better time than the holidays to forgive and forget mistakes. Let bygones be bygones. Let peace within yourself ring and forgiveness shine for all to see.

Not one of us is perfect. That is the fun of being human. Embrace your imperfections.

Not one of us says the right thing all the time. That makes conversation exciting. Pray for the right words. Slow down and give yourself time to find the most helpful thing to say.

Not one of us freely prances through life without a flub up. That gives us room for grace. It’s not the fall that is graceful; it is how you get back up.

I encourage you to find the grace within yourself to forgive past shortcomings and move on from your mistakes. Grow from the things you have learned.

Graceful intentergy is the best kind of positivity. Graceful intentergy is the most rewarding energy. The grace and light that radiates from forgiving yourself will not only brighten your day but will shine as an example for all those you encounter of how to love themselves gracefully.

P.S. Remember that whole love yourself thing.

  1. I’m pretty good about forgiving and loving myself when I’m alone but being in social situations is where I really struggle. I feel socially awkward and inept at holding conversations, I always fear saying the wrong thing and there’s nothing worse than when I do try to join an existing conversation that I get the silent stare from others. And these reasons are why I prefer to avoid social gatherings and rather just read books by myself.

    1. I always have post-social guilt. I always feel guilty for things I said or didn’t say. This message is so important for letting go. Most of the time others are so consumed with their own worries, we really have nothing to be worried about anyway. Thank you for sharing!

  2. It’s not tough for me to let bygones be bygones because it’s natural to me to unable to hold the grudges against anybody for a long period of time. So it is kind of good for both the parties. πŸ˜‰
