Please don’t feel ashamed…

Please don’t feel ashamed. Rather, simply be contrite when and where appropriate.

Be vigilant to lessons learned and for ways to apply them.

Be powerful.

Be prepared to make amends in simple, practical ways that you can. Without extreme sacrifice. And from a place of admitted human frailty. From sincere desire. And from love. And do so with a sense of purposefulness and the pride of knowing that you are doing the best you can.

That is much more than most people do.

It is not a crime to be human.

And I’ve never known anyone who gets up in the morning, looks in the mirror and asks, “Gee, I wonder if I can find a great way to screw up my life today?”

Things happen. We misjudge. We misstep. We make mistakes. We learn. We live. We move on.

    Yes, your right. It’s not a crime to be human. I think it’s a spiritual experience being human. It’s not always easy because it’s the spirit that has to learn through the trials.

    How true Ken! We do all make mistakes in our lives. I have made far too many to count. What is really unfortunate is when we don’t see or recognize them as mistakes for years and years, repeating them out of habit, addiction or ignorance. To recognize, to learn, to forgive oneself and to move on with our lives…that is indeed the key.

    We are all here to learn lessons. There is no time to feel shame. We must learn from it and move on!

    Thanks, Mike, Mark and David, for the added insight. Have been a busy boy and let this blog languish for a COUPLE MONTHS! Sorry I didn’t see your contributions earlier.

    Hi Ken,

    Its very difficult to follow what you have jotted down. But if one can follow what you have said, it would be very easy to lead our lives.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Just wondering: Is anyone still here?

    Am still here, T.C. Thanks for asking. But have let this blog sit in dormancy while focusing on developing other projects.

    Don’t want to kill it. It still gets lots of visits. People tell me they are helped by the richness of the material in the archives. But I am not actively developing it now in this current form.

    Several years ago coach Gila Joy Pascale helped me to consider and define a way to reorganize it and redirect it so that it is more clear in purpose and direction and therefore more effective and relevant, but I have not prioritized that as a project. May at some point. In the meantime, am just letting it rest here, in peace and service, as is. (And still might add a post now and then in the meantime, but haven’t felt called to for about a year as I write this response).

    The work on this blog was intended to be funded by monetization through residual payments from Google for allowing it to display its ads here, and from occasional recommendations of relevant, helpful, quality products. Unfortunately, the Google Adwords payout scheme changed substantially shortly after I began this blog, and I never took the time to truly master “keyword optimization,” and the tiny residual payments the blog has earned have not at all compensated for the amount of time and work that has gone into developing it. I could change that. I know. Maybe I even should. Instead I have chosen to divert my attention and efforts to what seem to be more viable income-producing projects that serve the same greater mission. Will I revive and repurpose this blog? Don’t know. We’ll see. I DO still respond to comments as they come in.

    Maybe I should post this (or something similar) on the front page? So people understand.
