Inspirational Weekend Quote

Don't you wish someone had told you this inspirational quote when you were younger? Never be afraid to make a mistake! I'm all about learning from my mistakes and if you're surrounded by people that can support you through then you should never be afraid to try. Or fall that far!

Some attempts will be a success and some failures, but I wouldn't want to have it any other way.

Children need to feel safe and as soon as they do they can feel free to try. Isn't that what exploring mistakes are all about? I believe it's the same with adults.

Stand on the diving board, take a deep breath and take the plunge!

"The worst mistake is being afraid to make one", is a life lesson that I stand beside. Life is too short to be afraid. We must take risks and without the risk there is no growth.

I wish I could write this inspirational weekend quote on my front door so every time I come home I am reminded to not be afraid. Do you agree with this quote sweetie? How do you feel when you make a mistake? Have a great weekend!

I agree but I think we are taught early mistakes are BAD. The dreaded test in school coming back with red circles and check marks. Getting something wrong is one thing but it is different animal altogether when a teacher implies some kind of mental defect to it. Thomas Edison had many failures but they helped lead to his success.

Perhaps we should have that quote in all classrooms~!

Hey Gal! I ought to be the most courageous person on earth as many mistakes I have made in my life. I have always heard the events in your life is what shapes you, so I guess that includes mistakes. Boy! I don't like that thought! LOL!

God Bless!
