Sometimes, I have conversations with others through email. I keep all emails private unless I am told otherwise. A reader, Diane, wrote something to me that rings so true to me that I asked her if I could share it with everyone and she gave me permission to do so.
“I will make mistakes until the day I die. Yet I can still learn to love myself as a mistake maker. I can also become a better problem solver, because I will continue to face problems until the day I die. I can’t control what happens to me, but no matter what does happen, I have choices as to how I respond. It’s not what happens to me that matters, it’s the choices I make in the face of what happens to me that determines the quality of my life.”
Thank you Diane for letting me share this with everyone.Â I think the above is one of those quotes that deserve a highly visible spot on my desk.
