This time, you made a mistake. Next time, you’ll know better.
This time, you let anger get the best of you. Next time, you’ll be able to respond differently.
You’ve said things you wish you had not said, and done things you soon came to regret. Fortunately, there’s next time.
Next time, you can do better. And the time after that, even better again.
Next time, you can apply all you’ve learned and experienced. Next time, you can respond with positive purpose, with kindness and understanding, with love.
As difficult as you’ve made things, you can still make your way forward. Next time begins now, and now you begin to make things better.
