Day 46: a love letter to mistakes

15 Feb

Tonight continues my commitment to more love and less fear this year.  For February, I am writing a love letter each day.  Tonight is dedicated to …mistakes.

Dear Mistakes:  

Oh, how I loathe you!  Oh, how I love you!

It’s a love/hate relationship with you, dear Mistakes.

You sting and burn and hurt so much in the moment.  And, yet, you always end up teaching me something I didn’t know about myself.

How is that you always turn out to be the smarter one — so wrong in the moment, yet so right when it is all said and done.

It’s as if, in some odd way, you don’t really exist. Like you are eternally misunderstood.

I suppose we could rename you. What about …happy accidents?  Blessings in disguise?  A better way?  Surprise enlightenment?

No matter what we call you, I think you’re pretty special in your own crafty way.
Don’t let anyone tell you different.

Love,
Jamie
