Good person, bad person

At our age we probably know this, but not necessarily in time to pass on to our offspring when they most needed it. Might be good to have an actual quote to refer our grandkids to! Quote from Madisyn Taylor:
There is no such thing as a good person or a bad person. There are choices and actions that lead us in different directions, and it is through those choices and actions that we create our realities. Sometimes we choose or do something that takes us in the opposite direction of the reality we want to create for ourselves. When we do this, we feel bad--uneasy, unhappy, unsure. We might go so far as to label ourselves "bad" when a situation like this arises. Instead of labeling ourselves, though, we could simply acknowledge that we made a choice that led us down a particular path, and then let it go, forgiving ourselves and preparing for our next opportunity to choose, and act, in ways that support our best intentions.
I dream, therefore I am.
