Natural Wisdom Part 6: Whoops

Say sorry, try better, move on



Once we make a mistake, we have to live and deal with our new reality of having made that mistake. If damage control is possible we must do that. But if there’s nothing we can do to repair what we damaged, we need to accept that, move on, and do our very best not to make that same mistake again. What else can we do at that point??

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Time for another post in my new series, Natural Wisdom. This is a series where I write about some of the lessons God has taught me, through nature. God teaches us so much through nature if we’re willing to watch and listen to see and hear the Wisdom.

The latest lesson that’s come to me from working on my land is a lesson about mistakes. Mistakes; something we all make. Every person on this planet makes mistakes, with no exceptions. Over the course of our lives, we are all going to screw up … a lot. And there are levels to this mistake business. Some mistakes are much worse than others, some mistakes have bigger consequences than others. But every mistake causes some level of injury, to somebody. Although sometimes the only injured person is ourselves.

Anyway, what do we do once a mistake has been made?? That’s the most important part of this talk of mistakes, actually. What do we do next?? Well, to over-simplify a bit, the answer is that we need to move on. We need to deal with what we’ve done, deal with our new situation, fix things if we can, and no matter what, we need to move on.

What else is there to do??

That’s the topic for today. So let’s think about it.

My Bad

When I go out to work on my land, there are lots of mistakes I can make. And I say that from experience because I have made many mistakes out there. And I know I have many more mistakes ahead of me. It is what it is. I’ll give just one example of what kind of mistakes await me out there.

As I’m located in the Caribbean, one thing we have a lot of down here are banana trees. Banana trees are a real blessing and a great asset to have. Each tree is very generous, giving a yield of many bananas in its short life. But one thing about banana…
