Spin Cycle: Guilt

You know, I had another topic completely planned for this spin courtesy Sprite's Keeper. It was going to be all about how I feel guilty for being a titchy bit judgey when I meet someone for the first time. Sometimes I just assume that someone is a little too weird for my taste (although you ought to know by now that they must seem pretty wacky if I think it’s too much) or that they’re snobby, or mean, or whatever. I’m sure that I’m not the only person who does that, and I never let my initial impression stop me from getting to know someone, at which point I almost always change my mind, BUT I still have guilt, because that is just not a good way to be.

Instead though, I am going to state the source of my current guilt for the “world” to see: I have not kept my New Year’s Resolution ONE TIME since I made it. It is true that I also have not gone to bed after 1 in the morning in the last week, which is an improvement, but WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT 10? So I fail. And I have guilt. And now you know that.

So, what am I going to do about it? Keep trying of course. Guilt and I are old friends and I don’t let it bog me down. And a little big of guilt is healthy; it shows you have a conscious and perhaps even some empathy. But don’t let it bog you down either.

Somehow, I knew you didn't keep that resolution! But you are improving! Therefore, you are forgiven!
And linked!
