Let's talk about mistakes. We all make them, I make them DAILY. I used to beat myself up over mistakes I made. I would get frustrated and angry. But you know what I do now when I make mistakes? I LEARN FROM THEM. Like Miley Cyrus said (yes, no shame, I love Hannah Montana and Miley -- have you not realized I'm a dork yet?) "If things don't work out as you planned, figure something else out. Don't stay down, try again". And that's exactly what I do.
For example, blogging can be tough for me at times. I have a strong voice when it comes to writing, but technically I'm not the best at it. So this morning when I was on my walk, my mom called to tell me there were mistakes in my blog post. I immediately walked home to fix the mistakes, I couldn't focus on my walk knowing that there were mistakes in my post. I was frustrated, embarrassed and mad at myself. My patient mother went through the post with me and helped me correct my errors. While the post was fixed (well it's good enough, I'm never perfect) my ego wasn't. So I took some time, hiked up the hill and cleared my mind.
And then I came home and blasted some Miley Cyrus. See, I told you I am a dork.
I've learned holding on to feelings of frustration does nothing but make me unhappy and upset. And that's not how I like to feel.
Live and LEARN!
