Backspace, September 12, 2018 Daily Reflection


Don’t you sometimes wish there was a backspace button in real life? When you sent that heated email, filled with raw emotion. When you said something in the heat of the moment. When you didn’t think and acted instead. When you regret a choice that can’t be undone.

We don’t get backspaces in life. Luckily, we do have the ability to move forward and learn from our mistakes. We can learn mindfulness, how to take a breath first, how to check in with ourselves; our thoughts and emotions, before we say or act on emotion. We can reflect on our choices and what happened that led us to that moment that we regret.

We may not have a backspace button, but we do have the intelligence to learn and move forward with wisdom and grace.
