I was practicing yoga this morning when it came to mind how simple it is to reset a factory with new equipment, or reset a life with new practices, but impossible to re-set past actions or conversations. Apologies and forgiveness mitigates the past, but the words and actions still stand.
As I stretched into the forward facing hero I smiled. Facing forward is always easier for me then facing backward.
It wasn’t thoughts of the far past, but the recent conversation that plagued my mind. I don’t speak unkind words. I don’t roll that way. But I noticed how unkindness could creep into my actions by dismissing another’s concerns as surely as an unkind word can wound a heart.
