Get Refersh, reborn! From the barnacles of mistakes, regrets. Love yourselve

"The real tragedy is the tragedy of the man who never in his life braces himself for his one supreme effort -- he never stretches to his full capacity, never stands up to his full stature". Arnold Bennett Again this is some worthwhile quotation from Sean Covey book, some other good one ... "Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of somebody else." Judt Garland. He shares a very cool example of a ship. A ship @ sea for many years picks thousands of barnacles that attach themselves to the bottom of the ship eventually weigh it down, becoming a threat to its safety. Such a ship utlimately need its barnacles removed, and least expensive and easiest way is for the ship to harbor in a freshwater port, free of salt water. Soon the barnacles becomes loose their own and fall off. The ship is then able to return to sea, relieved of its burden. We are just like that ship, carrying barnacles of mistakes, regrets, and pain from past ? Perheps we need to allow ourselve to soak in fresh water for a while . Isnt Classical ?
