It takes courage to admit your mistakes. I have made so many mistakes in my lifetime that it boggles my mind to think about it. But one thing I have realized is that I would rather admit when I am wrong, which takes courage, and make things right to the best of my ability, which again takes courage. I have not always taken this approach but I know that has to change. To always take the courage route and not what appears to be the easy way out. The peace that comes from taking the courage route far outweighs the mental and emotional torture we put ourselves through when we don’t do the right thing. I continually ask for mercy, grace, and forgiveness for my mistakes knowing that I am not perfect nor do I pretend to be, but I will strive for courage and take the courage route.
