Mistakes are underrated in my opinion; they need to be given more credit for their presence in our lives. We live in a life of not wanting to make mistakes or appear foolish and a failure. True some can cause great suffering, but I am talking about the day to day choices that can wreck havoc on the psyche. We ALL make mistakes like it or not. Learn the lesson, adjust the behavior and move forward. The idea is to acknowledge the situation, and overcome it with integrity, not a mental beat down.
Mistakes are here to show us other possible outcomes and show us that we can recover with grace and ability. Mistakes are an incredible opportunity for personal growth if we allow life to teach us and show us more outcomes than the one we had in mind, or even when shit happens that we did not plan. OPPS!
Mistakes do not define you; only you apply a definition of yourself to yourself when you think you messed up. The next time you make a mistake or think you made a mistake, own it, embrace it as another opportunity to grow more, accept it as an opportunity to open your heart to yourself. When we allow ourselves to make mistakes, we allow others the same grace. Mistakes are not failures; they are the hidden treasures we give birth to. REPEAT; I am a completely confident in who I am mistakes and all. ❤
