Every human being on this planet is precious and should be given the opportunity to make the living on this planet a better place; for themselves, their families and others.
It is not for us to judge other people. We ALL make poor choices, sometimes very wrong, sometimes very bad and some harmful, to not just ourselves but to others.
This does not mean we others should with deliberate attempt, do wrong, bad things too.
Two wrongs do not ever make a right!
When a human being sets the example by doing a good thing, it encourages others to do the same.
Oh, and FORGIVENESS for yourself and other’s mistakes, “HUGE” in the whole scheme of making life a better one for all!
Just my thoughts here – one person among more than 7 billion others on this planet whose greatest hope is for all of us to live peacefully, be happy and value each other, bonding with what we do share in common:“We are all human beings … born of the planet earth!”
Thank you for your visit, best wishes for an excellent week ahead!

Now here is a message I wish would resonate with my mother-in-law. Perhaps I can make her one of your converts. 😉
Wish you luck with that one, it’d be awesome though LuAnn, for all concerned wouldn’t it? xx
It certainly would. 🙂
Lovely post with what I consider the most important… forgiveness… not an easy thing to do, but I have found with age that it does come a little easier…
I agree Bulldog, I found the same to be true as well, not easy, as you say, but important! xx
Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Penny!
My pleasure Amy, I hope you have been resting up from your recent trip!
Great post Penny. Forgiving others is necessary for your own peace. If you don’t forgive someone who has wronged you – and by forgiving them you are not condoning what they have done – you are going to be continually going over it in your mind and not let the wound heal. You don’t even have to go to the person and tell them you forgive them. Just simply forgive them in your heart and mind and gain freedom for yourself.
Yes. Forgiving some people, some things in life is very hard, but you are correct for one’s own self health it is the best thing to do Lyn!
Indeed everyone on this planet should have the opportunity to make this world a better place!
“Judge not lest ye be judged!”
Doing something that shows the good in life, and shows us how we can be, improves life for all.
Now my belief on mistakes: No one ever makes a mistake. They do not make good choices, or the choice that they made did not have the outcome that they expected. There can be no “mistakes” if there is a lesson learned from a choice that did not have the expected outcome. It is a learning experience for all those involved.
Just my thoughts…one of many millions…
Hugs Penny, and this was an excellent post! – B
Thank you Barb and I absolutely love your very wise thoughts. So true, a wonderful approach to take in life! Hugs to you dear friend! xx
Hugs back Penny!
Thanks for adding the G+ Penny 🙂 I always seem to be the first to comment 😆 Oh well, doesn’t bother me. But I’m waffling.
I have made mistakes. I have made huge stonking lucky-you-didn’t-go-to-jail mistakes. That was a long time ago. I made the poor choices then. I like to think I am different person now than I was in my early twenties. I am not just out for me. In fact “me” is he person I put last after kids and friends. Now, I would do all in my power to help people. A quarter of a century ago, I didn’t care about other people. I don’t know what made me change, but something changed me for the better.
I don’t go out to make people suffer that wronged me. Why waste my time, when it is better to shrug my shoulders and say “whatever”. You know one particular incident that I can’t do that to, but I won’t do any wrongs against the person or people involved, I won’t waste my energy.
I pay for my mistakes that I have made .. yeah, I pay for them every day … I learnt from them, I won’t make them again.
I think I kind of missed the point here
No, I think I got your main points. They are good ones too Alastair! 🙂 xx
Thank you Penny. I’m glad I did make some semblance of sense 🙂
