April is here again and it’s time for this year’s A to Z Challenge. This year, my theme is motivational quotes. Each Monday to Saturday throughout April I will be posting a motivational quote each day starting with the letters A through to Z.
It’s traditional through the challenge to keep posts short and sweet, so that’s what I’ll be doing. Just a quick explanation of why I chose each quote and what it means to me.
Day 13 – M
“Mistakes are proof that you’re trying”
When we make a mistake, it can be easy to find ourselves awash with despair and ready to just give up. In that moment, we don’t see how far we’ve actually come. We don’t see all of the good things we’ve done. We only see that mistake, sitting there like a red glaring eye that is staring right at us.
Mistakes don’t have to be a bad thing. Mistakes are how we learn. If we never made mistakes, how would we know for sure that we’re getting it right the next time? Mistakes are proof that we’re trying, because if we weren’t trying, we wouldn’t be in a position to make a mistake.
Do mistakes get you down or do you look at them as inevitable milestones? Let me know in the comments 🙂
Don’t forget to check back every Monday to Saturday to see the next motivational quote!
