mistakes ... uh huh, I've made a few
or subtitled no more brooding please

Hey lessons in life ! I feel your like your picking on me ...
not really, I do ultimately thank you, merci !

Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures
as this will only fill your mind with grief, regret & depression.
Do not repeat them in the future.

Thinking you know when in fact you don't is a fatal mistake,
to which we all are prone.

    punishing yourself for past mistakes is pointless and harsh on your psyche. its hard not to do though. I love all the quotes -all of them good medicine.

  6. Home for lunch this rainy day (it's about a 4 minute walk from home to the post office). I'm LOVin' the job, it entails plus de detailey stuff, but my over eager, over achieving perfectionist spirit feels right at home. Plus I'm crazy about the 2 women I work with - we've been great friends for years. Plus there's stamps!!
