Linking up with My Home Truths & The Multitasking Woman
Right now I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself. I had another post written for this week’s I Must Confess prompt, but I did something a bit stupid and unprofessional and well…that’s how I feel right now.
I sent a mea culpa email and offered to fix the situation. As much as it can be. What else can you do when you do something that is frankly a bit stupid?
As I write this it’s Sunday evening, so I’m having a glass of wine and trying to feel productive and smart and efficient in other areas of my life, as if that makes up for it.
Look, it will pass. Things always do. I know this. And in the grand scheme of things it is a minor fuck up. But right now…I feel a bit stupid.
I guess that’s one way to learn a lesson.
Have you learned a lesson the hard way recently?

I feel your pain Ness. I’ve been known to fuck up occasionally too, and it makes you feel bad. But I just try to remember what my Mum used to say when I was a kid – “In 5 years time, will it really matter?”
And that’s the thing – it really is minor. I just felt a bit stupid most of last night!
I do that too. I hate feeling like I let someone down and then it plays on my mind.. Argh
Yeah it’s not easy to forget a failing, even a small one.
I have a tendency to dwell on those sorts of things too Ness even if they are relatively minor. I hope today has put things into perspective and you feel better.
Like you say, this too shall pass. And in the meantime there is always chocolate 🙂
Completely agree with Janet… there is always chocolate. Feel like I need a truckload of it at the moment.
Yep, I’ve stuffed up but always remember that it passes and it’s like it never happened.
