Go Super to Listen Go Super!

We make mistakes. If you are a human, you make mistakes. It can be very hard to accept, but it’s true. We know when we make a mistake when we look at the outcome of our actions. A mom doesn’t show up for her son’s baseball game and sees how disappointed he is. The student waits until the last minute, and they do a terrible job on their homework. Or worse, we choose the wrong path in life, and it has made us into a mean or unhappy person. Mistakes can be a very difficult thing to make peace with.

If we don’t find a way to make peace with our mistakes, we may get lost in regret. Brandon Flowers is making peace with his past mistakes in his new album ‘Wonderful, Wonderful.’ When he first became famous, he was very arrogant and negative. He insulted other people without thinking about what he was saying. He is using his creativity to resolve his remorse.

What is something difficult you have made peace with? How did you do it?
