Have you ever done something or made a mistake, unintentionally of course, and then had to make a decision about how to clean it up?
I was recently with my meditation teacher and our group at a retreat in the San Juan Islands on this beautiful estate overlooking the bay (if you have never been there…GO!).
It was a deeply moving and transformational 4 days.
When we were packing to leave, I grabbed a few apples and pears for the road since I drove from Reno to our retreat location.
I went into my fridge on Tuesday and low and behold were these beautiful pears…I took them out to enjoy and discovered they were not real! Gosh they looked so real! I even tried to wish them real to no avail!
Not only were they not real…I stole them, unintentionally of course, and now what do I do?
Ignore the mistake and hope that no one has noticed the missing “fruit”?
Fess up to my meditation teacher and ask how I can return them?
What do you think? How do you handle the embarrassing moments or unintentional mistakes?
With Love and Gratitude,
