I had the need yesterday to reconsider a few things I said when a wiser person would have said nothing. There was no way to get the words back…they were tragically already out there. There was nothing to do except to apologize. (Something I have had a lot of experience with.) Which is probably both a good and a bad thing.
Harder than saying you’re sorry can be letting go of it yourself…but this must be done, we must do what we can to make it right, move on, and be done with it. If we don’t then we may be creating something else that we will regret. We must not let the mistakes and blunders of yesterday creep in and darken the hope and potential of today. I love what Emerson had to say on the subject.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ~Emerson
