The Wrong Project

We’re all going to be wrong from time to time.  In fact, you’re probably wrong about something right now in this very moment or season of your life (I know I am).  Maybe it’s in a project or a relationship or something you said or didn’t say.

Regardless, being wrong is okay.  It’s part of being human – a good part because it helps us grow.  What’s not okay is refusing to acknowledge and own our wrongness.

I want to be the kind of person who readily says I was wrong.  For anything and everything.  Not making a big, drawn out spectacle of it, but being aware enough, sure enough, and brave enough to own it and move on.

That may mean addressing wrongs you have been stubbornly or naively holding onto for a long time.  Or it may just mean acting differently in the future.  I’m still pondering exactly how the wrong project will play out in my own life.
