A problem is a chance for you to do your best.

Duke Ellington

Ausust 20th - doing your best


Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.

Robert H. Schuller 

Life doesn’t always go as planned, we try to do our best, but we make mistakes. The truth is we shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes because it’s the only way to learn. Good people are good because they have come to wisdom through failure. We learn how to do our best because we have failed to do so before. 

The best we have to offer is learned by failing to do so in the past. We try, we fail, we try again and eventually we get it right. The thing is to keep on trying, don’t quit until you get it right. 

Making mistakes helps us to know how to make better choices in the future. Failures can help to turn your life around if you accept responsibility for what you’ve done and not place the blame on someone or something else.



We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

Albert Einstein

So true that making mistakes helps us to make better choices in the future. And so true we do learn from our mistakes. I know I do!

All that was ever asked of me was give me your best. That is what I asked of my sons. In reality, most of us try to do/give our best. We may be judged by some that do not know us, but we know our selves and should be happy within because we do our best, whether noticed or not.
Sherry & jack sending love your way!
