"Learn From This"

The last year has been loaded with painful moments, some stupid missteps, and meaningful growth.

Recently, after I had made a painful misstep, someone who chose to be a good friend in that moment, said, "Learn from this."

I will.

I wish the mistakes only came in quiet moments in a room alone. But they don't. Sometimes they come loudly in public.

I'm hoping, as I stumble through, that they will soon be fewer and farther between. And hoping even more that any pain they cause will be mine alone.


"What the hell does this have to do with writing?" You say.

I'll answer that in the next post.
