okay

A week ago,
K told me to
grant myself grace
when I make missteps
and mistakes:

“You learn fast, Deborah,
but mistakes are inevitable.
They aren’t a sign you’ve
failed to learn. Just …
that you’re still
learning.

“You will
make them.
And it’s okay.”

This evening,
I am grateful for K’s words.

Today,
I made many mistakes.

Thanks to K,
I have a chance to see them
not as my catastrophic failure
foreshadowed early,
but rather,
simply, as
faltering
early
steps.

None were a sign
that I’ve utterly
failed to learn.
Just …
signs
that I’m
still
learning.

(And it’s OK.)
