I am finding many benefits from reviewing the previous days (and decades) as I write my letter of apology in the morning.

Here’s one: As I clean up the past, I become aware in the present. I am aware, in the moment, of interactions that I am about to leave unresolved.

For example, in the midst of a conversation, I become aware that my words and my energy do not match. Perhaps I am speaking gracious words, but feeling judgmental of the person I’m speaking to. My awareness gives me the opportunity to change my energy to match my words.
