No Shame

You may know that I am a fan of PostSecret
This was one of the secrets this week and it really speaks to me.   

We are all going to fall on our faces and make mistakes. 
You can't be in this world an not make a mistake.

But did you know that you can also mend? 
You don't have to mend perfectly, just mend a little corner of the world. 
Pick up a piece of trash. 
Feed someone who is hungry. 
Give someone a job if you can. 
Give ten minutes to help someone. 
Speak kindly of your own self. 

Instead of being defensive, respond with kindness when you know someone else is hurting.

One of the things that struck me about the movie Shindler's List was at the end when Oscar Shindler cried because he realized he could have sold his gold pin to save one more life. I decided I want to get to the end of my life as best I can doing the most good that I can. I don't want to cry at the end for what I could have done but didn't.

We're only supposed to do our part. 

Is there something that comes to mind for you that is the right thing to do?
No regrets.
