It’s hard to live a life without having regrets. Why? Because we are human. But also because somewhere in us we believe that we should have all the answers at all times and should execute all of these things…….perfectly.
Rather pompous of us don’t ya think?
I especially get caught up in this when it comes to parenting. I mean we are molding a life for God’s sake! This is HUGE!!!!!!
And while yes it is……there is so much more going on than our parenting.
I was getting caught up in it myself today and then I am reminded with one of my readings;
“Your Son is still as you created him…..and what can alter Holiness Itself?”
I know this to be true in my own personal life. I grew up in less than “perfect” conditions, followed suit, and lived a “troubled” life for many, many years.
Today I have proof that underneath it all is a perfect soul intact.
So while we have been conditioned, very thoroughly I might add, on what a person’s path is “supposed” to look like, there is no such thing.
While I still don’t like a lot of things, I see how much of that is my ego in play because today I have a deeper belief that at all times-in every situation-we are all doing the best we can with what we have.
So maybe regrets are reminders I need to forgive myself and others because there is nothing we could have done to another or that another could have done to us for that matter, that can change the fact that we are still as God created us underneath it all.
And that is Perfection.
