Identify your stepping stones…
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC
The past is a stepping stone, not a millstone.
~ Robert Plant
Mis-takes are a part of life, it’s one way we learn, trial and error. Actually, there are several ways in which we learn and I am one of those people that likes the trial and error method, for good or bad. I tend to investigate an idea a bit and then jump into it head first, I go with my gut on some things and trust that I will figure it out in the process. While this may not be the most efficient way to go about a project ~ I do think it’s fun and I enjoy the adventure.
It’s important to keep our mis-takes into perspective ~ mis-takes are our teachers, the stepping stones to new experiences. We are not looking for a perfect score every day, or perfect anything really, too much pressure!
Who do you know that is perfect? We all have flaws and that is part of what makes us interesting as individuals! Nothing is life is perfect and yet everything is perfect, it’s really all in our perspective. It’s important for us to own our imperfections and the beauty of who we really are as individuals. We don’t need to be classically beautiful or handsome to be comfortable in our own skin. Developing a ‘healthy’ self-acceptance is vital to self-love, appreciation, self-respect and self-esteem which is what fuels our desire to live with a good “Quality of Life”.
This game is about:
- Healthy progress
- Forward movement
- Learning to love and appreciate ourselves!
Identify the stepping stones you have laid down in your journey
& celebrate what you are learning!

Usually for me its holding onto regrets or “failures”. What I want to focus on is knowing I am here now and all the events in my life leading up to here (good or bad) are just scenery. All that matters is what I do with this moment and the choices I make now. That is how I change those mistakes into stepping stones.
i hold on to disappointments. i need to learn to identify and let go quickly so i can move on, not continue to be “stuck”.
A very timely challenge for me as I let go of most things “Goffman”. My wishes, hopes, disappointed expectations and identity. As I move past these things I am open to new joy, connecting to my own joyful spirit.
