People who make the biggest mistakes are often the holiest.
We’ve heard it said that it takes a brave person to make a mistake and keep trying. We used to get down on ourselves too much for messing up. We are learning to accept our humanness. It’s not such a big deal to be imperfect.
We learn the value of mistakes when we really start to listen to other people. When we sit around and share with others, we find ourselves admiring those people who can admit when they have problems and make mistakes. They really do seem brave to us. They don’t seem weak at all. If we keep listening to people being very human, we gradually start to see the light.
Today let me see that it’s okay not to have all the answers.
