The best response when you make a mistake

Ellie and her teacher were reading a book about a little boy who accidentally fills the washing machine with dish soap creating an avalanche of bubbles and foam throughout the house. Ellie's new teacher Mary was evaluating Ellie's reading comprehension. She asked Ellie, "What would your mom say if you filled the house with suds?"

Ellie told her that her mom would say, "I love you."

So true. ;-)

That is definitely the first thing I would want to hear too. When we make a mistake we know it for the most part and for some of us the inner dialog may be punishment enough.

Carry on.

Send me any good vibes you can on October 3.
