Learning From Our Mistakes

The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing. – John Powell

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down. – Mary Pickford 

This week I want you all to focus on mistakes that you have made in the past. I want you all to choose one mistake that you have made in the past that you can make right, RIGHT now.  This week on the blog your three sentences should be what your mistake was, what you did to make it right AND how you feel afterwards.  Everyone makes mistakes, but what we learn from making our mistakes is what shows our true character!  Have a great week everyone!

Some examples could be: telling a lie to someone, being mean to someone, watching someone get bullied and not helping….anything that you wish you had done differently.

Keep smiling 🙂  Mrs. Gairns
