Mindset is our certainty, our bank of experience. We count on it; even trust it, as we should. Yet, certainty settles in so easily.
At the very least, mindset is a leitmotif of aimforeven.com. Each daily dose is its own energy, a pursuit of an evenness of mind no matter the experience, including change.
Even transformation has its beginning as a moment.
And every daily dose that follows requires patience and often includes forgiveness, the ability to let go of the debt that accrues from regret.
“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”* There is a firm delicacy in a violet petal forgiving the heel that crushes the life out of it.
The fragrance will dissipate but it lasts longer than life. The debt is forgiven in the transformation.
A mindset, too, evaporates when there is no regret of what has been.
*Though often attributed to Mark Twain (since the 1970s), the quotation is an evolving compilation with origins in the late 19th century.
