I am going to share the September 9th Today reading in Emotions Anonymous, because I think I make more mistakes than the average bear..
" When we begin to open ourselves to living, we generally feel a great deal of freedom. Yet we are also aware of our fear.Suddenly many choices lie before us. Of course, we do not want to make a mistake which may hurt us later. But we do not want to miss out any longer either. Like a new colt out in the pasture for the first time, we are apt to stumble and fall.
MEDITATION FOR TODAY
May I be patient with myself when I make a mistake.
Mistakes can be unexpected learning experiences.
TODAY I WILL REMEMBER
It does not matter how many times I stumble and fall;
it matters only that I pick myself up, learn, and go forward."
The last line reminds me of this quote a program friend used in her signature, "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Kung Fu-Tze (Confucius).
As for the topic of mistakes, I make them regularly, myself, as for me this is the way I learn.
