Why Do We Do This to Ourselves?
Hi everyone! Geordie here from Love Your Life to Death.
I wanted to take a moment and share with you something tonight.
I do not want anyone to feel like they have regrets or to feel guilty if
something happens in their life.
Recently Yvonne and I were at a presentation in Saugeen Shores near
Lake Huron (Port Elgin and Southampton) and we have family there and
also have family buried there. I made a promise that I would go visit the
cemetery because I was not able to make it to the funeral.
However, after our presentations were done, the sun was shining, it was a
beautiful day and Yvonne and I packed up all of our stuff, hopped in the car
and we left. It wasn’t until a little while later that we realized that we did not do the thing we said we were going to do. I was sad about this and I felt guilty.
I then made a promise to myself that this has happened, there is nothing I can
do about it at this point and I promise to do better next time.
What I can do is remember all the good memories that we have had
with my family and I will always remember that. The other thing I can do
because I do not want to continue to feel guilty is keep Just Showing Up for
other people. What I have promised is that I will go out and do something good and Just Show Up for somebody else to help me move through and feel less guilty.
That’s it! Bye for now.
Thank you for being part of our community.

So true, isn't it! If you do something, or don't do something and feel guilty? Feel that guilt, forgive yourself and do better next time. And Just Show Up for someone else. Wise words, Geordie. Thanks! xo
