You never know how your presence + your actions are playing their role in the world. Lately, I was convinced I had made a serious mistake, a true blunder. I felt very bad about it & I thought I had to compensate for it, because clearly I had come short of my true Self. But much to my surprise (& relief!), I had a conversation with the other person involved & I learned how this experience together helped her define herself better. She received some confirmations of misalignment & some confirmation of how far she had come since her last "failure". She confirmed to me that indeed, everything was + is perfect as it is. She felt grateful to have learned by my side & did not harbor any resentment. She truly did her best.. and so did I.
I am incredibly thankful for this realization. I'd doubted myself, assuming I had done something "wrong". But I couldn't see the bigger picture, the ripple effect my actions had in another's life & consciousness.
My faith is strengthened by this incident. I am exactly where I should be, feeling & doing my life just as I should. Because truly, there is nowhere to go but in one's heart, in the present moment.
I've been coloring lately & I learned, yet in another way, that mistakes are what makes the world special + beautiful. It's how we evolve, it's inspiration nudging us toward creation.
So don't worry too much about being perfect, you never know when you'll accidentally create a masterpiece.. or a miracle!
