Failures and Mistakes

Failures and Mistakes

Loses aren’t catastrophic if they teach the heart and soul their natural cycle of breaking and healing. A real Tragedy ? That’s the loss of the heart and soul themselves. If you have abandoned yourself in the effort to keep anyone or anything else, unlearn that pattern. Live your truth, losses be damned. Just like that, your heart and soul will return home. –Martha Beck

I believe everything happens for a reason. There is an order in all of our chaos. It was all meant to be. Of course, if you go bankrupt, have a bad accident and something bad is happening to your family, the cosmos always somehow has a bigger plan and blessings can get wrapped into curses. But if we don’t face up to our mistakes on a very basic level, then we miss the full gift of our capacity to make lasting change.

Mistakes happen. Big ones, dump ones and stupid ones. Regrets that you will have for a long time and no thinking will change that  you really screwed up. And when you can get “real” about it, you don’t need to waste energy protecting your ego or pouring on the sweetener. You can use that energy to clean up the mess and love yourself while you are doing it.

We mostly fail if we don’t listen to our intuition or instincts. You actually know right at the beginning what to do, with that first handshake, when someone shows up 5 minutes early or late, from their sound of their voice of the other end of the phone, that tone of that e-mail, somewhere in your being, YOU know. Like or dislike. Open or  closed. Curious and careful. Pay close attention because ,if you listen to this guidance you will not make mistakes.

How often have we said: I knew this, I should have… ! Pay close attention to your inner thoughts and make decisions from your gut.

There is a Buddhist saying:

As in the beginning, so in the middle, so in the end !!!

Why do we stay longer in relationships that don’t work out at the end ? Why do we stay in a job that we know we don’t like? Why do we believe she/he will change?

Why are we untruthful and think we can get away with it ?

Examine your first encounters and kickoffs. They may be a micro of the macro. This is the time to establish your healthy boundaries and limits and begin as YOU wish to proceed. This will empower you not to make mistakes or failures, this will lead you to success!
