M.I.S.T.A.K.E.S

They say mistakes make us humans,

Makes us realise no man, no plan is perfect,

It smashes the superiority, breaks all supremacist delusions.

Makes us start from scratch, inspect, introspect and to a new plan deflect.

They say we learn from our mistakes,

But what if mistakes become the norm,

Do we have what it takes,

To look within, learn the lesson and transform?

They say mistakes make a man stronger.

The lower he falls, the higher he can rise,

Repeatedly being knocked down builds determination to fight longer,

It makes him patient, but does it make him wise?

They say mistakes make a man perfect.

Each mistake becomes a life lesson, a stepping stone to do things right,

Gives the opportunity to reassess and plan a course correct,

To put up a good fight to avoid past blunders and remain morally upright.

They say how we correct our mistakes truly define who we are,

Our resilience and tenacity after every mistake shows our true character,

The greatest lessons don’t come from a saint or a preacher.

It is our mistakes, that is infact the best TEACHER.

  2. Love this! I always think of mistakes as life lessons. They give us an opportunity to learn and make better decisions in the future. And really that’s what life is all about. Learning, growing, evolving.

      1. You’re so welcome! I’m slowly trying to read your posts this week as I’m on vacation (reliant on good wifi which comes and goes🏝) but I’ll hopefully read through all of them over the coming weeks. I had replied to one of your posts from September about self care but my comment disappeared just as I hit β€œsend” so I’ll try again later in the week! πŸ’–
