Day 331 – Imperfections
I just discovered that I have another “repeat” in my blog – this time over “reminders.” On Day 19, and then again 140 days later, that was the title of my blog entry. As I see this, I am conscious of my apparent inability to catch this before I publish it. I no longer remember the circumstances of either day beyond what I wrote; I don’t know if I was in a hurry, or stressed, or just careless. Regardless of the reasons why, I broke the rule I had set myself – again – for not repeating my thoughts and looking for new things for which to be grateful.
I have a feeling this will not be the last such discovery.
It reminds me that I am imperfect. Despite my best efforts, I still make mistakes. I’m human. I’m glad I am made aware of a mistake that really doesn’t matter; it affects no one but myself.
If I allow myself to be imperfect, to make mistakes without further judgment, can this help me give others the same consideration? Can I allow others their imperfections? I’d like to think so. It’s something to be aware of, though, as I interact with a whole new set of co-workers.
