Mistakes

Those of you who have been following my blog for the last few months will know that I was looking for a job. I was thankfully offered a job earlier this week and I’ve already started work again.

What Oprah is saying makes perfect sense. There are no mistakes, there is only course correction. We all have something that we were put on this earth to do. It is just a matter of stumbling through life until we get to that point when we fulfill that reason for being alive. Sometimes we veer off that path, but that’s okay. That is part of the process of becoming that person that we were meant to be or achieve that goal that we were destined to achieve.

In retrospect, it makes sense. Taking that job meant that I had veered off course. Being unemployed allowed me get myself back on the right path. Was it easy? No. Was it frustrating and emotional at times? Absolutely. But it was necessary to get me back to the right place.

I hope that I am again on the right path. We are all on the right path, we just have to realize it.

Last night, I had the pleasure of seeing Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks speak.

His reputation as a public speaker precedes him. I was very happy that his reputation is not built on thin air.

He spoke of two things which made perfect sense.

The first is that we must build the future before we can go back to the past.

The second is that there would no war if we thought first of our grandchildren instead of the hurts that our grandparents experienced.

If anyone has the opportunity to hear him speak live, I highly recommend it. It was an incredible experience that I don’t think I will forget for a long time.
