Okay, friends, we’ve bared our souls, now it’s your turn.
Over the past month we’ve heard our contributors share about inner demons like pride, insecurity, and fear. We’ve also heard more practical thoughts about asking for help, traveling more, and teaching styles. Now I want to hear from you!
Why share mistakes? Why rehash the past? Why think about regrets?
I rarely do, personally. I prefer to think of the brighter future ahead of me rather than the dim past fading from view. But if something I have to offer will bring confidence or encouragement to another reader, I will lay it all out there.
Author Katherine Paterson once said that reading is a dress rehearsal for life. When we read, we learn from someone else’s mistakes–with the hope that we might not have to make our own. I believe this monthly series serves a similar purpose.
Of course perfection isn’t ever an option. We will make mistakes–but the fewer, the better.
