Today is the last day of 2013. Tomorrow is the start of a new and more meaningful chapter of life – another opportunity to make a new beginning, to make new mistakes, to learn from those mistakes. The quote below sums it up beautifully:
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
– Neil Gaiman
So go ahead and make wonderful mistakes in the coming year. Learn and evolve from those mistakes to grow as an individual. Because “Mistakes are the portals of discovery” – James Joyce.
