“Accept that you won’t always make the right decisions. You’ll screw up, sometimes badly. But your mistakes doesn’t mean you’ve failed, only that you’re trying and learning in life.”
This quotation from Jay shetty speaks volume. It’s about the imperfection of life and what it represents. Not all the time we succeed. Not all the time our decisions lead us to the right path. And not all the time we arrive at where we plan to go. This only shows that we are prone to mistakes. That God created us imperfect for us to learn things and explore life on our own.
As a kid, we are as clean as a blank paper. White and clear. But as we grow older, we face challenges that pushes us to decide. In that process, there is no certainty whether we made the right choice, and our only option then is to stand by our choice. That is where the learning process starts. When the decision we chose is wrong then we faces more challenges ahead. It’s like a road with two path; where the one leads to a safer and easier route while the other leads to a rocky and bumpy route.
Upon choosing the second route, we then realize we have committed a mistake in choosing but then our only option now is to continue ahead. Through the path we experience life with lots of challenges. And through every challenge we learn an important value to apply in our lives. If we have not committed the mistake we did then we would not have learned what we have learned.
To simplify all the facts, all the quotation state is that in every wrong decision we make or any mistake we committed, there is an important value in life that we learn. Therefore we should accept that we are prone to mistake and that there is a positive reason for God to lead us to that path. We just simply have to trust and surrender our self to the flow of life and on God’s scheme.
