Gratitude 95

I made a mistake at work: I forgot to ask someone to complete a form. And when the person needing the form asked me about it, I said I forgot. It was really strange for me to notice that I didn’t make myself wrong for it. In the past, I would have been all flustered for not doing a perfect job. This time, I just apologized and since I was not beating myself for it, I was able to easily offer a solution.
The solution was turned down and I just moved on with my work. And then as if by magic, a few minutes later, the person who needed to fill that form came back and I was able to ask him to complete the form.
I am grateful for being able to be nice to myself and not beat myself up for being less than perfect.
What else is possible?
