Affirmation for March 30, 2011: Mistakes

A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying... that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.- Alexander Pope, in Swift, MiscellaniesThought of the day:Are you someone who takes your mistakes too harshly, criticizing yourself for something you did incorrectly? If so, it would be a healthy exercise to take a step back, and discover why you feel so much disappointment when you make an error. By striving to see the best of the present situation, and not dwelling in the past and what could have been, you will find that the path you are on now is a wiser one and you will reap the benefits of your experience. No matter what, the present reality is what you've got, and the best way to proceed is to keep moving forward in an enlightened state.Have a positive day!TeamDS

Thank You. I like this, and I believe I am too harsh on myself, so substituting disappointment with positive thoughts is a brilliant idea.
I\'m going to do it. Effective immediately. I also believe in \"owning\" our mistakes and trying to learn from them.

Very nice! After a day that started very rough, but became better as it progressed, this is the perfect way to end my day. Thank you so much for the insight.
