Forgive me those times I don't get it quite right...in fact when I get it very wrong. For those times when I do the wrong thing, make mistakes or intentionally to the wrong thing, even if is for the "right" reason, or, if I don't do something when I should. I often think about doing something that would be "nice" or make some "feel better" or would actually improve the status quo, but don't.
I don't think I'm lazy...well at least not terminally so. Sometimes I just lack the energy or the verve it takes to take action. I get shy. I will cop to that. I feel awkward. I don't know what to say or how to say it. But when I do, and it isn't quite right, well, give me some credit.
Oh my goodness.
I just realized it's not you at all! It's me. I don't give myself credito oftentimes. I don't forgive myself when I should. I have high expectations. And after all these years and all the expectations that have led to naught, I should know better. The best we can do is to do something. Doing nothing is what gets us into a mess. Look at congress.
Anyway, that's what came up for me today. There are things I should do, I want to do, but I let shyness or fear or feeling awkward and clumsy keep me from moving forward. Just for today I think I will feel those feelings and move forward anyway. And just for today, I will forgive myself those times I don't get it right, because at least I tried. And whatever I did, it was hopefully better than nothing.
