“There Are No Mistakes”
While the year is still fresh, I’d like to share this message on mistakes by Oprah Winfrey with you.
It doesn’t have to completely resonate with you, but I hope you find something in it to be affirming and encouraging.
I can definitely say that many of the most devastating “no’s” I’ve experienced have led to even greater “yes’s” down the road that I could not have previously anticipated.
We are more than the closed doors, or the “failures” we have experienced.
This can be a good reminder of the importance of listening to ourselves, and what is happening to and around us, so we can change directions when necessary.
I’m archiving this here now, as I may need to refer back to it at some point.
