Grace of the Next Moment

You know those weeks when everything goes right? You follow through with everything you say you’re going to do, the creative juices flow, the house is clean, the desk at work is clean, you let down no one, and check everything off your to-do list every day? In this perfect week, you might even you blog every day!

Yeah. This wasn’t one of those weeks for me. I must have gotten 5 (maybe it was 10) emails from people reminding me of things I’d forgotten to do. Sigh. The people pleaser in me really hates letting people down…

..but you know, every moment is a chance to start over. The one good thing that came out of my dissertation was the idea of the “grace of the next moment.” Because time continually moves forward, every moment–every moment!–is a chance to start over. Sometimes you have to mop up the mess from your failures, but then, life goes on again…sometimes even to the point where you have one of those really great weeks again.

Here’s hoping!

Peace for your journey…
