“From error to error, one discovers truth.” ~ Sigmund Freud
Mistakes are powerful and through them we discover the beautiful gifts within others and ourselves. You limit your soul’s expansion by labeling them as a negative. Giving yourself the freedom to err along your journey allows for growth. It isn't wise to carry your mistakes with you like some worn out loyalty; don’t be a martyr. Experiment with your life - you have that right.
Mistakes are the ingredients needed to find your souls purpose! When you make them use it as an opportunity to transform; often these oversights can be the things that really set you free. When you ignore the inner critic and allow them to happen without self-flagellation, you are then able to truly listen for the lesson that is to be learned. Herein lies the magic of mistakes.
They are a part of your story, so embrace them and honor where you’re at. Then start from that self-actualized place and keep moving forward. And whatever you do, don’t ever quit.
“Maybe not making a mistake is a even bigger mistake” - Christa Leigh Meister
