Do you know what I've realised?
I've realised that I haven't made a lot of mistakes, but instead I've learnt a lot of lessons!
At the time, it felt as if it was all going wrong and it felt so unfair. I felt angry at myself and frustrated for making some wrong choices not understanding why it was happening to me but now when I look back I am so grateful that it actually happened! I learnt so much from it and it made me a better person. It made me stronger and more determined than ever before! I'm more humble, true to myself and a happier person for it!
The same goes for certain situations in my life today! Feeling frustrated because I'm comparing where I am now, to where I want to be. Wishing that I had gone about things in a completely different way but what I must remember is that so many positive things have come from this situation and so I cannot dismiss everything because of the 'one' position that I am not happy with right now! If I hadnt landed a position at A, I may not have thought of my ideas of B, C and D which I love and feel passionate about! We must always stop and take a step back to look at the much bigger picture, whenever we have those days of feeling doom and gloom.
Without those 'mistakes' I would never truly appreciate all of the great choices that I have made in my life and I have made many if I don't say so myself!😌
So be grateful for those "mistakes" be aware that they are really life's LESSONS in disguise!!
Wishing you all a lovely evening and a positive week ahead!
