    Some years ago, I heard the saying: The man who never makes mistakes never makes anything. It liberated me.

    Mistakes can be beautiful.

    This does not automatically mean I believe fuzzbender to be either human or beautiful.








    ok...

    I'll concede the human part...

    Mistakes are what make for good judgement, sometimes it takes quite a while to get to the good judgement part.

    Read my tag line. My boss does say that I learn from my mistakes and never commit the same one again.

    Most of what I've learned the best have been from my mistakes.

    And remember, there are a lot of other people out there making mistakes, so you don't always have to make your own to learn.

    Mistakes are just another choice, a fork in the road. Lean and move on. I don't have many regrets. I can't change the past.

    Mistakes make the music funny. We just need to remember that we're shooting for music, not comedy. ;)

    From an old boss of mine after a colosal blunder:

    "Son, If you don't screw up once and a while, you ain't workin."

    Words to live by.

    I heard someone define an expert as someone who has made every possible mistake in their field of expertise.

    It goes along with what many others are saying here, and it should be liberating to us. I lived for too long fearing failure, thinking that failing would invalidate me in what I was doing, or even myself as a person. Now I know that failure can never paralyze you like the fear of failure can.

    P.S. No child should ever be told that they were a mistake because they weren't. There is no such thing as an unwanted or child, but there are many unworthy parents.
