Mistakes 'R Us

Decisions are not easy for me.  As the years have passed, I have simplified my process and some become snap decisions with the hope that they will not become "snapped" decisions.  Abraham says "make a decision and make the decision right."  In other words, there are no wrong decisions, only bad attitudes about them.  There are always benefits to making what appears to be a mistake - not the least of which is learning that "mistakes" are merely labels that we apply to something to make ourselves, or someone else, feel intense guilt or regret.  Which, by the way, takes away our freedom of choice and hangs us with another label...that of "victim."  We can be victim to our own poor selection process or someone else's.  Perhaps it all goes back to why we're here on this planet, at this time, in this space.  Is it really a random occurrence?  I think there is greater order to the universe than that.  And if there is, then there really is no such thing as a mistake.  It is merely a digression from our psyche's true path and it is a guiding post to get us back on the right path, which is right for the moment, in that time and space.  And, of course, not making a decision, is a decision.
