I met a new friend this weekend. To say she is amazing is an understatement. This woman will be the first one to tell you mistakes come knocking on her door, but haven't we all heard that knock?
To me, making mistakes is living life. If you aren't making mistakes, then you aren't living. You're sitting on your pristine pedestal watching the world pass you by. Making mistakes, learning from them, finding the courage to make a choice to live a positive, rewarding life while raising children in the process takes a serious amount of moxie! Your choices reflect your life, good and bad. Making poor choices doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you a courageous person, someone willing to stretch beyond their threshold to reach for the brass ring despite the mistakes. It's what you do with the knowledge of your mistake that creates your choice.
