Any Given Moment
Earlier today I sat with a class of incarcerated fathers as they learned the importance of not allowing past mistakes to control the future. It was a candid conversation about anger, abandonment and accepting the consequences of personal choices.
As I listened I reflected upon the truth that every person needed the wisdom these inmates were receiving. Each of us have chosen poorly, we have acted in haste, out of ego, because momentary pleasure clouded our judgement and led to hardship and regret.
At the end of the session the facilitator handed the participants a slip of paper that read; “At any given moment you have the power to say this is not how the story is going to end.”
Words of wisdom for us all.
