Enjoyed this piece by John Blake on CNN about a book by Catholic priest and author Richard Rohr called Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. In it Blake quotes author Brian McLaren and it so resonates:

“The person who never makes a mistake and always manages to obey the rules is often a compassionless person, because he sees people for whom the wheels have fallen off and he wonders what’s wrong with them. But the person who feels that he has ruined his life often has more capacity for humility and compassion.”
