I made a huge mistake today. Or maybe I’m overreacting unnecessarily. Either way, I feel sad. I always face a hard decision when I feel I’ve royally screwed up: ignore the embarrassment or look deep into what is causing me so much pain. When I’ve done the latter I’ll let you know. In the meantime, what I’ve learned and have decided to pass along to you is to accept that not every step you take will be the right one, but still acknowledge that one failure isn’t fatal. Feel sad. Be embarrassed, but don’t drop anchor where you feel as though you could give up. You’ll survive. You’ll live to fight another day. Mistakes are lessons we learn ourselves. Look into it and know you can’t control everything. But learn from them, grow from them and keep pressing forward in life toward your dreams.
