Quote of the day... 6/24/15

I don't know if I continue, 
even today, always liking myself. 
But what I learned to do 
many years ago was to forgive myself. 
It is very important for every human being 
to forgive herself or himself because if you live, 
you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. 
But once you do and you see the mistake, 
then you forgive yourself and say, 
'Well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' 
that's all. So you say to people 
who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' 
and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.' 
If we all hold on to the mistake, 
we can't see our own glory in the mirror 
because we have the mistake 
between our faces and the mirror; 
we can't see what we're capable of being. 
You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end 
the real forgiveness is in one's own self.
