New mistakes

October 20, 2011

Without mistakes, what would shape our lives?
Liven them up?
Provide the pushback that challenges us
to be the best we can be?

If mistakes are lessons, and I believe they are,
they’re a learning opportunity.

If we take the lesson,
we won’t repeat the same mistakes.

Of course, ain’t nothin’ wrong
with making new ones.

And don’t I know it.
