Misspelling a word. Texting while driving. Maxing out a credit card. Saying hurtful words to people. These are some of the mistakes that I have made in my life. These are things that I am not proud of, but I am glad that I made these mistakes. It’s been a great way to learn lessons, and to try to not make the same mistakes again.
We are going to make millions of mistakes in our lifetime. Sometimes they are minor. Other times they are major. But it’s important to remember that we will make them. It is also why we must learn from them. I took some time this weekend to think about mistakes that I made this past week, and just in general. There are some mistakes that I am glad that I made. There are others that I wish I could take back. No matter the mistake, you just got to learn from it; and move on from it as well.
Don’t make the mistake that I have made when making a mistake. That is over analyzing it, and beating yourself up for it. That is not healthy, and will lead you down a very wrong path. We are all human. No matter how great someone is, they are going to make mistakes. It’s just a part of life. That is what makes life great too. The fact that we can make a mistake, learn from it, and redeem ourselves at another time.
Mistakes lead us to become greater than ourselves, and to help others do the same. If you are going to make a million mistakes, make sure you next million are not the same ones as the previous ones.
Have a great week everyone!!
