Mistakes are the golden threads in the tapestry.

When mistakes hurt someone, regret it.

A heart with a sky full of guilt can help.

A thimble full of shame can kill.

Make amends if you can.

Ask for forgiveness always.

And be sure to forgive yourself.

Learn what forgiveness feels like.

Forgiveness feels like peace.

Like “I’m done, here.”

And when you’re done, let it be.

A mistake held onto sparks resentment.

All wrong turns are eventually right turns.

Mistakes are the stepping stones to perfection.
