Mistakes are proof you’re trying. If you are making mistakes, you’re learning. You are growing. You are trying new things that you’ve never tried before and taking chances.
Mistakes aren’t necessarily bad. Repeating the mistakes is bad.
Don’t beat yourself up. Learn from them and move forward.
There were times in my life when I would cut myself off from society when I made a mistake. Something would blow out-of-proportion/in my face leaving me in despair, and I would go to that dark place and give myself the hardest trial imaginable. I am, and have always been, my worst enemy.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes.
Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before.
Don’t hesitate, don’t isolate, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect;
You’re not insufficient.
Whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
I’m so very proud of my 3 daughters, they are scared to do things every morning when they wake up, but they conquer life every moment of every day.
I love you girls more than you will ever know. Thank you for teaching me to, in the words of Dori, “just keep swimming.” 🌊🐟
