Life lessons from Dumbo

I used to think this applied only to tragedies and misfortunes, things beyond our control. But I’m learning that it can also be true for the mistakes we make, the damage we create, and the hurt we cause. We can choose to not run away, and instead seek healing and forgiveness, learn about our weaknesses, and commit to do and be better. And that’s where even our most wretched failings could someday take us “up, and up, and up!” Right? Let’s choose to forgive ourselves. To deny that to ourselves to prevent ourselves from growing.

If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride, because it shows you trust in your own powers.

–Mother Teresa
