A really random and defining moment for me happened during my brief time at college.
For years it was my most embarrassing memory.
It was towards the end of the school year and I was finally feeling like I fit in. I was out with friends enjoying a glorious afternoon playing ultimate frisbee. I ran for a pass and, to my horror, let out a very audible fart.
Pretty sure I ran back to my dorm and never spoke to any of those people again. And subconsciously it was probably one of the reasons I didn't return to college.
But now (I think being married and having kids...especially the process of childbirth) I don't think there's anything that embarrasses me.
I think of all the horrible choices I've made in life, that moment is the one I would go back and change. I'd sit down in the grass and laugh into hysterics, then carry on with a fun afternoon.
Don't take yourself so seriously. Learn to laugh at your blunders. Show yourself grace. - 4 days ago
