Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Thank you for your time. Last night while I was training at the Y an event occurred that became a teaching moment for me. This morning, during my meditation; I found myself examining that teaching moment, as well as other teaching moments that I have experienced during the past several weeks. In these teaching moments I found myself chiding and being critical of myself for how I had responded and handled what occurred, which led to each of these teaching moments.
As I meditated, I had a renewed realization concerning teaching moments; which gave me hope. My renewed realization helped me to remember that instead of berating myself for these teaching moments, I could process each teaching moment through writing in a journal.
Through processing each teaching moment, I realized that I could choose to be empowered, by each teaching moment; instead of allowing myself to feel defeated because of what I could have done differently. Through processing each teaching moment, instead of continuing to be critical of myself; I began to experience hope.
Through processing each teaching moment, I was able to stop berating myself for not being perfect. Through processing each teaching moment, I realized that I could make a choice to do things differently in the future. Through processing each teaching moment, I realized that I could stop beating up on myself and learn from each teaching moment.
In the event that you have “teaching moments” that leave you berating yourself, be encouraged my friend. We don’t have to stay stuck there, beating up on ourselves. We don’t have to continue to be critical of ourselves, for not being perfect. We can take out a piece of paper, pen or pencil and examine each teaching moment. By examining each teaching moment we can decide to do some thing different in the future.
Through realizing that we can do some thing different, in the future; we can experience hope. Through realizing that we can do some thing different, in the future; we can be empowered by each teaching moment. Through processing each teaching moment, we can slowly begin to live our lives in a different way.
