Many of us wait until it is too late to see what really matters to us.
It’s often not until later that we see the many important things that have needed our attention.
Everybody makes mistakes, but we can’t keep asking people to forgive us again and again.
For example, instead of just saying, “I’m sorry I shouted at you,” we can train yourself not to shout so often.
Let’s take the time and make the commitment to practice seeing the roots of our behavior.
