  1. They say that muck ups are the juicy parts of life, where we learn and grow. And why, yes, you’re right! A decision usually is the beginning of something. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. This is always a good way to look at decision making. I am afraid of my worries, which focus on the ways I ‘mucked’ up things in my life and how that impacts my kids’ lives. This is how it goes, but at least the positive is how you expressed it, I did the best I could at the time!


    • It’s all we can do sometimes Robin. Once we muck up, if we own it (like my boss said) and then do our best….then we can recover and move on. And that, is a good thing to teach our kids in our wake as well. Even if our muck ups did impact our kids. We did do our best, didn’t we?


      • The word I think came to my mind with this lovely and kind response is this: We taught our children resilience, along with forgiveness. We need to forgive ourselves, sometimes to allow others to. Thanks for helping make my day 2 days in a row. Now, I had to tell you this, it was so great that you boos said ‘owning it,’ is good. I wish we had bosses like yours where I work. This is a good trait in upper management, Colleen.

  3. I don’t know that my decision making is getting any better Colleen, so I just tell people now, especially if it is a tough decision, to talk to my kids because they usually never agree with my decisions. When they have made their decision, I make the opposite and that’s the way I go. Keeps life interesting, and if it gets mucked up, I can only blame myself, and not lay the blame on their doorsteps.


  4. Here’s where I can interject with the old saying that in order to enjoy the rainbow, we have to put up with a little rain. Mucking things up are lessons. Lessons of things to avoid or to to better next time. I like how you put a different spin on decisions being a beginning—they are.


  5. A good reminder and a positive thought. Reminds me the imperfection of being human. Why not embrace it? At least that is my takeaway for today ๐Ÿ™‚
