Mistakes, Do you make them?

It is so important to teach children it is okay to make mistakes. We do not make them with intent or to cause harm. Mistakes occur when we dare to try something new, utilize our creativity or innovation, attempt to solve a problem, and the list can continue of examples. It all leads to the same factor…we are human!

Can you imagine where we would be today if all of the great inventors decided not to take a chance? If that were the case, then the device you are using to read these words would not be around.

Celebrate the lessons mistakes bring to us. It is so tricky when the mistake may have brought harm to you or someone else. I have experienced all of those mistakes, and it is hard to accept and not to wonder why.

I can think of many people in sports, entertainment, politics, and everyday life who have experienced a mistake that cost them something valuable in their life. Still, they have utilized it to bring even more to an already gifted life.

I am blessed. I would not have said that several years ago. I could only see the mistake, problems, and losses. However, now I can see that my words can fill this page and, with a click, could help someone see the mistake, a problem, or a loss can bring you to a new place to provide for others and breathe new directions for you.

Thank you for reading, following, sharing, and being a solution daily. The goal only needs to be one individual and if it is more, then job well done!
