Look of the Day: Everybody Makes Mistakes, Everybody Has Those Days

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!

Okay, I'm rocking out to Party In the USA now, because well, I like to party.
I put my hands up, they're playing my song, the butterfly's fly away...

  1. You, Amber, are darling, just darling! LOVE the flirty skirt on that dress! Woo Hoo for "Party in the USA!" You ROCK! I make mistakes too, as we all do and will, but I love that you learn from them and make the most of them! You know what, my mother called me the other day and told me about some mistakes in mine too...I know I have comma usage problem...hehe...so we just look past those and have all accepted that, but sometimes I miss things after writing blogs so quickly and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so, I too run home or quickly get online and fix them...I think you and I are a lot alike in that way! My mother is big on correct grammar usage, punctuation and just the english language in general and it is important...so, I have learned a lot from her! :)
