    I want to share the following reading I came across, from the book, Forgiving and Moving On, by Tian Dayton. Hope it’s okay to do.

    Slipping, April 11

    Today I will not hold myself to a tight regime of recovered behavior. If I slip or behave in ways that I am sorry for, I will promptly admit it to myself and make any amends that might help me to move on. If I slipped on the pavement, I would instinctively recover myself and continue walking as quickly as possible. I would recongnize that cursing myself all the way down the block for losing my balance would be pointless and self-defeating. Life is like a walk down the block and slipping is a part of the walk. Today I will focus on the walk rather than on the slip. The voices in my head that tell me falling is more important than moving along are sick voices. I recognize that I am powerless over them, and I will turn them over and let them go.

    I accept my slips and falls.

    “Do I contradict myself?
    Very well then I contradict myself.
    I am large, I contain multitudes.” -Walt Whitman
