I make mistakes every day! Some mistakes seem to be bigger than others. But, I know that my intentions are good. I am doing the best that I can with where I am at and with the knowledge that I have. I worry that others will judge me and think badly of me, but I have no control over others. What can I do?
Other people make mistakes everyday too. I do have control over my own reactions and thoughts. I can give others the benefit of the doubt and think well of them. Others are doing the best that they can with where they are at and with the knowledge they have. Who can I forgive or show mercy to today?
I can analyze my behavior and thoughts and make amends or changes quickly when needed. I can stop worrying about what others think about me since I can do nothing about that anyway. Worry and stress will only hurt me and will never solve problem. What can I do better today than yesterday?
If I am angry, worried, stressed or anxious I can stop and do something to take care of myself. I can write it all out and let it go. I can talk to a trusted person and hear their ideas. When I do something physical like going for a walk or exercising it helps to relieve stress. I can pray and tell my Father how I am feeling and ask for His help. I can ask for a blessing. What can I do to take care of myself today?
