I’m learning to extend grace to previous versions of me — warm hands to hug the person I was sometime in the past. We often learn more in the future than we know now, and we forget that our decisions were made by the more ignorant person were — an hour ago. Yesterday. Three months ago. Five years ago. So I forgive the version of me who was so tired in the morning, he forgot to turn on battery saver on my pc. I forgive the person I was on Monday who let an opportunity slip past because of an oversight. I forgive the person I was last week, who underestimated how much time I would need for my day-to-day. I forgive the person I was a few months ago, who let grief and fear lead his decision making. & I forgive the person I am now, who had somehow not let all these things go, but is learning to. Slowly. Daily.
