We all have these moments. Moments which follow events to which we haven't forseen the consequences, and things haven't gone our way. A visceral panic washes over us. We are suddenly vulnerable.
It's part of the human experience, and though they are never pleasant moments, their genesis is a story we're all familiar with. These are moments in which absolute clarity suddenly strikes us, and we finally see what everyone else has seen all along.
"Whoops," we think.
We take a breath, assess the situation, and we take steps to correct things. It's okay.
