Right all the time

This morning I woke up trying to put a few things in order. There were a couple of things on my mind and a few regrets I have been trying to put into perspective. I wish I could have had a do over, but what’s done is done and now, I must simply find a way to come to terms with it. I’ve been grappling with that. Then my heart spoke, out loud, as it usually does; “Your mistakes are nothing more than my lessons, what have you ever learned from being right all the time?”
Thank you Miss Universe!
Gradually, we learn to trust the wounds and the failures of life, which are much better teachers than our supposed successes. -Richard Rohr

There are some folks that just seem to have a zillion rules. They've got their set rules and a few flexible rules, and then there are the rules for when other folks are around that invalidate the ones that are okay in private. The ones I hate most are the hidden rules, just waitin’ to be jerked out of their hiding places at the first sign of provocation. Lord some folks make life so complicated.
