It’s never too late to start over.
If you weren’t happy with yesterday
try something different today.
Don’t stay stuck.
Do better.

a do over

A mistake is not a failure. It is something that goes wrong... and then you fix it. You never fail until you stop trying.

Suzie Heyman

We fear mistakes more than anything else. Mistakes bring on ridicule and hold us back from doing many things.  Regrets smother us until we become even more fearful.  It’s a vicious cycle.

Remember that not one of us is perfect.  We all make mistakes.  Many have also walked that path of fear.  To get where we are going, you may have to make a mistake or two, so why not go for it.

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

Albert Einstein

A life without mistakes is lived without JOY!

I’ve learned that peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard realities to deal with.  Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still remain calm in your mind.

It’s ok if you mess up, that is how you get wiser.  Give yourself a break.  Don’t give up!  Good things take time. 

There are many lessons in life to learn. Life is a continuous growth process. Don’t let mistakes break you.  Let them make you.

We are all a work in progress, which means we get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Mistakes show us what we need to learn.

Peter McWilliams

I don't like making mistakes, but so true we learn from them.



Mistakes are our way of learning. "To get where we are going, you may have to make a mistake or two, so why not go for it."

I wish someone had read this to my much-younger self -- the same one who argued she "could too!" carry the big watermelon down the hill to the Scouts' camp-site. The same one who dropped said melon along the way and faced certain ridicule.

For years after, it became natural to just go inside ...

If you haven't made a mistake, you are one lucky person (or maybe a very selective memory!)

But yes I have made one or two mistakes I remember today like they were yesterday and one was over 40 years ago.

Stay cool!
