“Past experience: He who never makes mistakes never did anything that’s worthy.”
Boy, I have made some mistakes in my life!
What have I learned? Never, Never believe the color that is on the box (esp. when you buy it on clearance it Kroger), never drink cheap wine…never do them both at the same time! There is nothing worse than a hangover with orange hair.
I have made worse mistakes to be sure, but most of them I am not willing to share in open company. But, what I will tell you is that from these mistakes I have grown as a person.
There is no better teacher than experience, sure there is a lot you can learn from books…but, unless that book hits you upside the head and takes you down a notch will it actually help you move forward in your life?
Maybe…maybe not. Same can be said for making a mistake, can you learn from a mistake? Maybe…maybe not.
It depends on if you are open to even admitting that you’ve made one.
Accepting responsibility for a mistake is something that has become as rare as a day without a reality tv show in the primetime lineup. To grow, to move forward, to do something worthy after a mistake requires that atypical step of taking the blame…and the consequences.
Past experience, something worthy?
I will say that my past experience has brought me here…I have three wonderful children, a wonderful hubby, a great job and I am writing this blog…is it worthy, I hope so! I am a product of everything I have done, and all that I have been through…so, I will...
Live, Laugh, Love~
Will my mistake be not playing these numbers? Maybe, but I will try to learn from it –
