Thought for today:
‘Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.’

What is your attitude to mistakes?
Do you forgive yourself for the ones you make?
Or do you accept them as part of learning – no forgiveness necessary?
Maybe you consider them essential to personal growth.
What about the mistakes public figures make?
Are they allowed to make mistakes?
Can you tolerate it when friends make mistakes?
I read over the weekend that one of the biggest changes in society as a result of social media is a declining acceptance of mistakes.
Combined with a polarization of opinion and the loss of middle ground.
There are of course two types of people in the world.
Those that divide people into two types, and those that don’t.
