Life’s Re-takes

This year my son had re-takes of his pictures at school since mom forgot to dress him properly.  and I thought wow, re-takes. I sure would like a re-take on some life stuff.  Wish we could get a re-do on things we do and later live to regret them. I am sure this sweet little girl got a re-take. If only it were that simple when we messed up.


But life just doesn’t work that way. The errors we make in life can make you feel one of two ways, they either make you feel really dumb for making them, when you think you should have known better or they make you stop and  learn lessons. Which in turn makes you wiser, bolder, and smarter.  If lesson is taken then you won’t make the same mistake twice. Sure a re-take would be so much better but that isn’t life.  If you ever do get a second chance at something, you should move mountains to do it.  Most mistakes are gone forever and leave a trail of circumstances or hurt. However, forgiveness and confession are good remedies that will always work in your favor.  God is cool like that.

Here are some quotes about making mistakes.

Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life. – Sophia Loren

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. – George Bernard Shaw

A man’s mistakes are his portals of discovery. – James Joyce

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. – Albert Einstein

All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes. – Winston Churchill

Enjoy today, let mistakes take you to new places, learn from them and seek wisdom.
