It’s a familiar scenario for most people. You’re lying awake at night, reliving something you did or said that day. The moment is gone but the feeling is still vivid: a mix of humiliation and regret. If only there were a way to undo that thing you did! Sadly, this experience is another common denominator among humans. And it’s not nearly as fun as chickens.
I am definitely familiar with this feeling. In fact, I was experiencing it recently when I was asked to teach a class at a nearby library. From what I remembered, I taught a class there years ago. At the time, I was pregnant with The Little Prince of Chickenlandia, and I want to just divulge right now that I am not a fun pregnant person. I wasn’t my best self when I was there, and I regret that. It has bothered me ever since.
When I thought I would get a second chance, I was so happy! Happy to feel forgiven, and happy for the opportunity to redeem myself. But did I ever get that chance? You’ll have to watch to find out:
Alas, life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to. But it just goes to show that sometimes redemption has to come from within. Sometimes the best way to redeem yourself is to let things go, and grow into a new person one moment at a time. <3
