Today’s writing (really yesterday’s) is an apology. An apology to Justin, who was kind enough to include me in his writing challenge. A challenge which simply required me to write 150 words or less every day for one month. A challenge I failed on day seven.

Justin, I apologize. This is a word you may hear from me quite often during our friendship. Sometimes I screw up. Okay, a lot of sometimes.

In my defense… okay, no defense.

Apologies are important. Screwing up is common. Apologies are not common. Whatever you did wrong may not have mattered to whoever you wronged, but if it’s on your heart… Well, the truth is it just makes you feel better to admit when you’re wrong, make a point of admitting it and then – maybe this is most important – allow yourself to move on.
