My Favorite Mistake...

Wednesday, March 24, 2010



Have you ever made what you believed to be a terrible mistake, only to find out it was the best thing to ever happen to you?...

[Some of the most common inventions today evolved from mistakes...chocolate chip cookies, ice cream cones, pacemakers, velcro, potato chips, post-it notes, coca-cola, silly putty, popsicles, frisbees and the one and only slinky]

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason, but sometimes it's easy to forget that when you're in the middle of those "moments". I'm so incredibly grateful for who I am and where I am in this life and I truly believe most of it is because of the "mistakes" I've made. The beauty is, we have choices...we can grow, we can learn, we can thrive and make so many discoveries from those mistakes and become the best we can on this journey. We may not always love this beautiful little life, but deep down...I'm pretty sure it always loves us (after all, it did give us chocolate chip cookies).
