A Little Chat About Mistakes
We've all done it. We've all made mistakes, or misjudgments and then let ourselves suffer in the thoughts of "what if" or "I can't believe that just happened." Maybe a little bit of guilt comes over you after a mistake. Let me tell you, I have made my fair share of mistakes. In life, in motherhood, in business...I could even go on and add mistakes in car purchasing, house repairs, and mistakes in how I have handled some things thrown my way.
Mistakes are part of life. Although sometimes hard to comprehend, they're necessary. You might say, "WHY ME!?" My belief in mistakes is simple- and I know you've heard this before- mistakes are not mistakes, but lessons! When you make a mistake, accept it, fix it, and move on! It is not worth your time and energy to dwell on things you cannot change, or something that is now in the past!!!!
I have a special place in my heart for mistakes now that I have learned (it takes time!) to accept and let it go! Be like Elsa, just LET IT GO. I look at mistakes as valuable lessons and after a mistake I like to quickly analyze my errors. It's important we don't continue to make the same mistakes...figure out where you went wrong and don't do it again! I also say a little thanks to God for that mistake- I'm thankful for the lesson, I guess I must have needed it!
I just think that life is complicated enough- we have enough to worry about! Don't let your mistakes hold you back, don't let your mistakes enable you to dwell, don't let your mistakes keep you from reaching your goals or dreams...life is short people! Now, go #SLAYtheDay!
