Life is a Journey
Life is a journey and there is a path that we will always be navigating those expected events and those unexpected events. What matters most is not when they will happen, but how we will navigate emotionally thru the event.
Enjoy the cupcake and love yourself afterwards. There is no room for guilt or diminished value for oneself, nor cause for spiraling down out of control.
Move forward with grace and dignity, not shame or guilt.
