"There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Just don't respond with encores." ~ Author Unknown
The Lost Sheep
A sheep found a hole in the fence and crept through it.He wandered far and could not find his way back.
And he realized that he was being followed by a wolf.He ran and ran,but the wolf kept chasing him,until the shepherd rescued him and carried him lovingly back to the fold.
And in spite of everyone’s advice the shepherd refused to nail up the hole in the fence.
~Anthony de Mello
“True justice is paying only once for each mistake. True injustice is paying more than once for each mistake.”
~ Don Miguel Ruiz
“Don't confuse poor decision-making with destiny. Own your mistakes. It’s ok; we all make them. Learn from them so they can empower you!”
― Steve Maraboli
“One mistake does not have to rule a person's entire life.”
― Joyce Meyer
“We all make mistakes but one has to move on.”
― Jeffrey Archer
“There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.”~John C. Maxwell
"Mistakes - call them unexpected learning experiences."Richard Bach
"The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing."
P.S: I am sure that particular sheep steered clear of the hole in the fence for the rest of its life.This story is not just about sheep. It is about everyone who has made a mistake…..and relived it again and again and again…unwilling to let go.
As I keep repeating…acknowledge,accept,let go…and learn to make better choices. We either choose to learn early and easily….or slowly and painfully.It is a choice.
