The blog I wrote today to be posted tomorrow is up because I pushed the wrong buttons. And that got me to thinking about the things we do we absolutely don’t intend to do, and how we can make them right again. Of course the worst is saying something aloud that is hurtful. Hard to fix, right? But we all do it. The best thing we can do, is forgive others who do the same thing. In that way, eventually those words we said either in anger or by mistake, will be forgiven too. Does that make sense?
Of course, I find myself pushing the wrong buttons the most on the computer and telephone. Those modern gadgets befuddle me and as I do it wrong, I’m already saying, “Ah, shoot,” or worse, depending on who is in the room. This blog, hopefully will be posted Saturday if I push the right buttons, so I hope all will forgive me and not get too confused that my Friday blog is up on Thursday afternoon, dated August 15 8:15 PM, which I intended to be AM. And that’s the way of my life, as I’m sure it is yours too.
We’ve all made major mistakes and errors in judgment, so why is it that we worry so about it when it’s a human condition? If we all gave others leeway for their actions, then perhaps it’d be catching and soon we’d all be forgiving stupid mistakes folks didn’t intend to make in the first place. And the best part, ours would be forgiven too.
So that’s my philosophical thought for the day. Now back to pushing the right buttons, hopefully.
