Mistakes Are Meant For Learning Not Repeating

imgres-1The FEAR of being nothing, achieving nothing and becoming nothing should be way bigger than the fear of making mistakes.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” George Bernard Shaw

I can write a book about all the mistakes that I’ve made in my life time but it would be a never ending book. I do a lot of things with out thinking about them. I feel as though at the age of 23 its the time where I am allowed to make mistakes. I’m not saying every morning I wake up and say to myself lets go do reckless things. Ahhhhh…. no thats not it at all. I’ve never been arrested or have I done any drugs. The mistakes that I am talking about are the ones that won’t really affect you that much.

I have to be able to say I’ve lived life and learned from my mistakes, because if not then it was pointless for me to have done the mistake in the first place. I’m not perfect and I don’t want to be. I like being adventurous and doing crazy things. I’ve had my fare share of messing shit up.

By me making mistakes I found out who I really am. I have discovered more about myself by the mistakes I’ve made in my life time. I’ve become more observant and compassionate when it comes to certain things and people.

I’ve had a lot of friendships in my lifetime ( I won’t go into detail in this post- look out for my friendship post) and they’ve ended because of childish reasons. I’ve grown and realize how to handle other situations from the past mistakes I’ve made with friendships. To be honest I don’t regret any of the mistakes I’ve made in life. I feel like you win some and you lose some. No great story starts with “That one time I messed shit up……”.
