i have a friend who loves the quote "mistakes were made." he loves it so much, in fact, that i can't hear the word "mistake" without thinking of him saying that phrase.
Nixon, and further popularized by comedians. the phrase implies that the person speaking the phrase made a mistake, but that they are not at fault for the mistake.
making mistakes: we all do that. admitting there were mistakes: relatively harder to do, but not altogether difficult. owning mistakes: potentially terrifying.
but you know what? if we don't own our mistakes, we don't grow. in fact, nothing really happens at all. so?
make mistakes... just make sure you grow from them.
my mistakes were made for you (so i could grow for you).
i'm anticipating great things happening.
and for those i love.
and i'm super glad for all the love. #twss
