You aren’t doing anything wrong. You aren’t bad. You’re just trying to figure out life and that naturally entails making mistakes, taking wrong turns, not knowing the best route to take, or fumbling around trying to figure things out. Eventually you learn. That is what a mistake does, it teaches, and yet the truth is, there are no mistakes. Every action and reaction has value. Every step, every falter, every decision and indecision has something to offer as you journey through life. Don’t be so hard on yourself. But do begin each day eager to learn, and with humbleness in your heart accept your appointment with life. Prepare to meet what comes to teach you in the best way possible. Be mindful. Remain aware of the unfolding journey that is your life, a cumulative experience. Remember what you have already learned and prepare each day to learn something new. Every moment is a teaching moment, an opportunity to learn, and there is value in even the most mundane of tasks and the simplest of experiences. The lesson is in recognizing it, learning what it means to you personally, remembering it, and moving on to the next great lesson. That’s life! Live it every day with the joy and openness of an eager apprentice. One day you will be a master.
