“If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.”
My husband learned that phrase in his years of working in the construction trades. He ends up repeating the phrase to me that — a lot. His consolation applies to so much of life. My life.
We are apt to make mistakes. That is part of our human nature. Despite our best human efforts, we will fall short. But, no baby that ever learned to walk did it without falling down — many times.
I need the reminder that I am prone to mistakes, that it is par for the course. And the reminder that it’s okay to cut myself some slack.
I’m giving myself grace this week. I hope you are, too.
