I don’t really look at anything as a mistake anymore…call it the “butterfly effect” but if I looked at something as a mistake- that means I shouldn’t have done it and then I wouldn’t be where I am now. I wouldn’t be married to may amazing wife, have my awesome son or be in a decent situation as far as life in general.
We all make what we would call “mistakes” but that is what helps led us to where we are going- so how can they be mistakes?
I only few a mistake as something that has led you somewhere you don’t want to be and my life is pretty perfect at the moment.
I did a lot of stuff in my past that I viewed as “mistakes” at the time- like moving in with a stranger that I met online when I was only 19 and she had three kids and was just a terrible person all the way around.
She talked me into writing cold checks- another mistake- which led to moving to Jacksonville Florida and basically being left stranded there.
I wasted a lot of time with the wrong people, made a lot of bad decision and did things I probably shouldn’t have but I can clearly link where I am now to most of those things.
I’ve set here thinking and there isn’t anything I would call a mistake today…maybe when it happened but not today.
Of course, this morning I dropped my phone in the shower and now I can’t charge it because there is moisture in the plug…so I guess that is a mistake that isn’t going to lead to anything good.
Love, Peace and Sharkyness
