What happens when you make a mistake?
When you really try to understand and do the right thing, but it turns out wrong?
Do you cry? Kick yourself around? Sulk?

I am learning to not be so afraid of making a mistake. That it is better to make a mistake and learn from it, than to do nothing and learn nothing.

An important part of learning and growing: spiritually, academically, physically, mentally, in any field - challenges and mistakes are a good thing if we learn from them. Like a good stretch after exercise, learning from a mistake helps us to develop our muscles and add flexibility.

Mistakes will happen. Quitting is not an option. Learn, re-fill the pitcher, begin again. Move forward.
