When You Do Your Best, You Can Put It Behind You
I was given the task of bringing a sweet potato dish to a family dinner last week.
After a lot of preparation and cooking, my daughter and I took extra time to make it look appealing.
During dinner I noticed that my brother (a former professional chef) barely touched the sweet potatoes on his plate.
“How were the potatoes?” I asked.
“You want the truth? he asked while glancing away.
“The potatoes were a bit undercooked and the apples were too sweet for me, but it wasn’t awful.”
Uh oh, another dish that didn’t work out. I began to feel embarrassed.
A split second later I intentionally turned my thoughts in a different direction.
Instead of feeling bad, I chose to remember that I really did do the best I could with the tools I had available.
So…let me ask you this;
Is there something in your past that you still feel bad about?
Take a moment and review that event. If you did the best you could with the tools you had available, you can now let those negative feeling go.
Next year I’m bringing dessert. 🙂
