As the first day of 2013 comes to a close, I think back on all of the day’s failures and really wish that life offered mulligans.
But then I think, life really is just one mulligan after another. Tomorrow, I get to do it all over again and in theory not repeat the same mistakes I made today. Lucky for me, I don’t have more cider donut mix to screw up.
I can parent my kids differently (notice I didn’t say better–I’m trying to be realistic).
Life is beautiful that way. We get a new start everyday and not just as the calendar turns from December 31 to January 1. Everyday is a fresh start.
I’m going to live this year remembering that and not beat myself up for my perceived failures. I’m instead going to embrace tomorrow.
