it all starts with me
learning new improved ways
of making the same mistakes

and then being unable to fix things
with the people I deliberately hurt
to avoid getting hurt myself.

  1. Ever tried, ever failed. Try better, fail better. We all make that same mistake. But the better we make it, the better off we are, Kenia. Thanks for that reminder.

  2. ha. i make a lot of the same mistakes

    the second bit is tough...the need for self preservation
    which enables us hurting others unintentionally
    a lot of honesty and heart in that kenia..

    i have to watch as i try to be a fixer at times
    and there are things that i can not

    thanks for the well wishes for dad
    he is doing really good...actually went for a short walk
    with him this eve.

    how does that Talking Heads line go? "Same as it ever was"... ~

  4. always find a new way to make mistakes; if you're making them, you're not growing... there's always a bigger wall to climb, and we must learn from all our missteps over the past, smaller ones... smiles

  5. Mistakes are what we learn from :) Anthony is right we grow that way .

  6. Very interesting title first of all - and yes, the true learning is through making mistakes. If I look back what I have written a year ago, I'll probably change them.

    When I used to bowl we would imagine our line from the release point to the pins. When things were going poorly they would always say "change your line, change your luck"

    wishing you the best of luck
