So Many Faults

I have been burdened lately with an acute awareness of my many failings whether they be moral, ethical, professional, personal, parental or otherwise. I don’t believe I’m writing this in a attempt to justify myself or convince myself to offer blanket forgiveness to myself (as strange as that grammatical construction may sound). Rather I think that, as these realizations arise I should take them for what they are worth, resolve to do better, forgive and move on. Unfortunately, it feels as if these unacknowledged, half-buried misdeeds have accreted like so much dust and dirt on a window and it may take some work to clean it all away with the soap and water of forgiveness and determination. Sabbe satta sukhita hontu!
