COURAGE ~ LIFE’S A DANCE …. That is how I started my Frantastic Friday. Actually I think that is a positive way to start everyday. Things aren’t always perfect out there in that great big world we call life. One thing I always told my sons, it is ok to make a mistake. That it means that you are at least trying to do something. We can choose to have courage to get back up on that horse and try it again, with the knowledge of what went wrong the first time around. Or we can just sit there on the sofa doing nothing.
“The greatest mistake you can make in life
is to be continually fearing you will make one”
By having the fear, not thinking that you can do something and not have the courage to move forward, will keep you bound to that fear, that you can not succeed. Being an active person in what ever it is you are trying to accomplish, is better than holding back and doing nothing. It is what we do with that mistake that makes the big difference in our life.
“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable,
but more useful than a life spent doing nothing”
George Bernard Shaw
When you make a mistake, don’t sit and look back at it for very long. Take the reason into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. Just like Dorothy and her friends found out when they found the Wizard of Oz…. they had the power within them all the time.
