Some mistakes have to be made

Mistakes are part of the very fabric of life. Each human being is entitled to make a few. The important thing is to learn from our mistakes. Make better choices the second time around.

The problem with most people (myself included) is, we tend to keep repeating the same mistakes. Like a broken record stuck in a groove playing that distorted section over and over and over again. I think mostly, it's because we tend to fear the path less chosen. Everybody flocks towards the norm. The box is so crowded with people thinking inside it, that it's inevitably going to burst.

Once in a while, try stepping out of your comfort zone. Who cares if people say "Are you crazy?"..who knows, maybe you are. Hehe.. The difference between a brilliant idea and a crazy one is only in the mind.

So the next time, you think of playing safe. Sticking to the same boring routine. Live a little. Try something new. If it turns out to be a mistake, no big deal. At least it's one you have never made before.

"The greatest mistake in life is to be continually fearing you will make one" Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915)
