A Genuine Apology

A genuine apology will never include the other persons mistakes. If I point out your mistakes while attempting to apologize to you, then I’m not really apologizing… I’m trying to clear my own conscience at your expense. It’s like saying… “I feel bad about the way I treated you… but it was really all your fault anyway. Ahhh, now I feel better.” A genuine apology should never include words like “but”… or “however.” And the most important thing to remember is that “I’m sorry” means “I won’t do it again.” The goal for today: learn more about the Art of Life! Have a great day everybody!

Humility… Forgiveness… Freedom

Imagine going anywhere you want or need to go without fear of who you might run into… no anxiety… no discomfort.

That’s freedom… & that level of freedom comes from humility.

When I admit my mistakes & forgive yours… I begin to make friends of my would-be enemies.

Abraham Lincoln once said… “Am I not destroying my enemies by making friends of them?” & that just makes sense to me now.

The goal for today: Humility, Forgiveness & Freedom!

Have a great day everybody!

Most Important Undertaking

Fixing a broken human relation is how we further the brotherhood of man & is the most important undertaking that any of us will ever embark upon!

When we refuse to Love each other, no matter what good reason we think we have, we destroy our purpose for existing.

We are all in this together… we need to Love each other… we need to be Honest with each other… we need to give to each other & we need to do it all very simply because it’s the Right thing to do… for each other.

The goal for today, Love each other… no matter what!

Have a great day everybody!

My Feelings Are My Responsibility

“Their faults are not discussed. We stick to our own” ~Anon.

I once thought… “My girlfriend made me defensive & I need to tell her about it & set some boundaries”.

This is an absolutely terrible idea!

1) It’s a lie to believe she ‘made’ me defensive, as if I had no choice in the matter.

2) If I say that… I can guarantee that ‘she’ will become defensive.

3) The best way to get someone to see their mistakes, is to admit my own.

The goal for today, don’t be a doormat… but don’t treat others like one either!

Have a great day everybody!
