The idea is every day, I will post a “noodler” – questions using the daily prompt, with the hope to inspire interaction and response.  I will respond for me in my comments, and you can respond in comments, or re-blog with your response and ask your readers to participate too.

Today’s Noodler:

Do you cringe at your own mistakes or other’s more? If you could change your most cringe-worthy moment, would you? Or, do you find there is value in the mistake or faux pas?

Comment or Re-blog with your answers!

  1. Honestly, I think lately I cringe more at others’. I try to come away from judgement, and it’s really not this sense of superiority that makes me do it. It’s more a sense of compassion… that “oh man, I did that before, and I’m watching you fuck up all over the place like I did. It’s a shame you won’t listen to anyone…” or maybe the foresight of what they’re going to go through, as a result of whatever fuck up it was. I’d love to say that I’ve come to this perfectly zen space where I embrace success and failure equally, but I still struggle with leaving the past where it belongs. I know and have experienced many, many times the power of a mistake and what I can learn, but in the moments, in the time, it’s so hard to remember that. I suppose it is the ego fighting to remain strong. I really love the idea that there simply are no mistakes. To me, it’s what makes the most sense. There are detours, there are paths that do not serve you, but ultimately, we are all dancers in the cosmic ballet, and with dedication, discipline, and focus…we all find our rhythm.


      1. It never fails. To paraphrase Jane Austen Having a good memory is unpardonable, especially when I’ve stuck my size nines firmly in my mouth!

      2. LOL! I hadn’t read that one before but would certainly like to believe one day I could be numbered with the forgetful. I’m sure my day will come.


    1. I don’t think I would. Yeah emotions etc but I’ve learned more when I’m wrong then right. I met my (now ex) husband through my ex boyfriend. I’ve always said that I’m grateful for that first bad relationship because it led me to jack, which gave me my babies. I kinda look at all my mistakes like that. The problem is I tend to dwell too long searching for meaning, so now I’m trying to focus on staying present. My damn brain is too noisy and going back and forth in time. Quiet up there hahahahaha
