Everyday Wisdom #73

“Of course there is no formula for success except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.”

~Arthur Rubinstein



It will be okay

Sometimes things go wrong, mistakes happen.

As hard as they can sometimes be, mistakes are also great opportunities to learn and to grow.

No matter whether it was a minor hiccup, or a major setback, remember:

  • It will be okay.  Be gentle with yourself – let yourself heal and recover.
  • This too shall pass. Just because today was difficult, doesn’t mean that tomorrow won’t be magical.
  • Learn from the experience.  What could you have done differently?  What would you do differently if it happened again?  If nothing, how could you change the way that you think about it?
  • Accept that mistakes happen.  You aren’t perfect.
  • You are not your mistakes.  They don’t define you.

Not getting what you want is actually a blessing.

It forces you to re-evaluate things, opening new doors to opportunities and information you would have otherwise overlooked.

Sometimes life falls apart so you can put it back together to make it better than it was before.

And there are always people in the background who care for you deeply and want you to succeed.  Who are sending you love and blessings and support.

So pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and keep forging ahead. 

You have the opportunity to learn from your mistakes and try again.

“Success is moving from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.”  ~ Winston Churchill
