This week, I finally bought two snow shovels and placed them in our cars. I had left all my gardening tools and snow shovels when I moved to GTA in 2021. Since I was moving into an apartment in the city, I somehow thought there was no need for a snow shovel. I quickly realized that I was completely wrong, but I resisted buying a snow shovel. That was until I saw how much snow we could get in the city this week. That was until I saw several cars getting stuck on the road this week. It took a while to admit I was wrong. More precisely, it took a long time for me to do something with the acknowledgment.
During this week, I have been thinking about these questions; “How long does it take for me to acknowledge my wrongs and mistakes?”; “When do we do something about the mistakes we made?”
At least I bought a snow shovel before getting stuck on the road. I guess it is never too late to acknowledge our mistakes and make amends.
I hope everyone is staying unstuck! I pray that we don’t have to use a snow shovel too often.
