Gratitude: Mistakes

Mistakes. The biggest one you can make is being too afraid to make one.

This is something you and I alike probably struggle with. I’m terrified of messing up.

To me, mistakes often times feel like failure when in reality they’re simply just stepping stones.

And so today I realize that I’m grateful for my mistakes. I’m glad I messed up that one time, or that memory wouldn’t have happened. I’m happy that I got that question wrong, it made me remember it especially for next time on that test.

All of your mistakes pave your way moment by moment. It’s pretty crazy how things turn out in the end. I can’t even think how many times I’ve said, or have heard someone say, “Well good thing ___________, or else ____________ wouldn’t have happened.”

Today, (and everyday) let’s just remember that mistakes aren’t always such a bad thing.
