Making Mistakes


I made a mistake today. 

The impact was frustration, embarrassment and shame. 

I'm learning SLOWLY but surely that I am not perfect and that making mistakes is a result of being human.  But that doesn't mean that my mistakes FEEL less painful.

Here is the good news. 

Mistakes are essential to growth.  Actually, that's not true.  LEARNING from mistakes is essential to growth. 

Unfortunately, too many of us (including me) numb out, ignore, flee, or react defensively against the fact of our failings.  And these habitual reactions cause MORE pain and suffering for ourselves and others.

Can you let yourself be wrong?  Can you stomach the pain that comes from a screw up?  Can you be compassionate with yourself and others? 

If so, you're on the right track. 

Mistakes are inevitable.  It's how we handle them that makes all the difference.

Peace,

Jocelyn

If you want to watch movies, play games or listen to music continuously, consider that your battery life will be much shorter. Adjusting the brightness can help to lengthen your battery life. You’ll probably see that maximum brightness is not necessary to use your iPad.

Charging an iPhone - or an iPad - seems like a straightforward process, but it can be slow. However, many Apple fans don't realise that the speed of charging varies depending on the way you charge the device: there are simple tricks you can use to charge your iPhone faster. Armed with a bit of knowledge you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to charge up an iPhone's battery.

Bear in mind that the adaptors above are the official Apple units; third-party charging products are likely to vary in their specs. If using a non-Apple adaptor you should check the wattage and see what it delivers compared to an Apple charger. It's possible that the two will offer significantly different charging speeds.
