We are all screwups.
We’re all experienced–dare I say experts–in making unfortunate decisions; however, we may not be so expert at figuring out how to engineer some joy out of an unfortunate decision. But it’s not only possible, it can be life-giving.
Where in life have you messed up–in big or small ways?
Where have you messed up with words or relationships or choices that have led you to the wrong side of a closed door?
Whatever your answers–even if your messups were very painful for you and others–please know that there is joy in learning your lesson and moving forward.
Listen and learn from my own big ol’ bad adventure…
