Don’t cry over spilt milk

Henry C. Link wrote Mistakes happen. Not only do they happen, they are guaranteed.

My father used to say, the only way you won’t make mistakes is if you don’t do anything,

and that in its self is a mistake.

Too many are afraid to try something new because they feel they might make an error.

They are both right and wrong. Yes, they will probably make errors but it is good to

understand that errors go with territory.

You will never accomplish great or worthwhile things without risk generally means great

mistake potential.

You are probably reading this by light bulbs invented by Thomas Edison. He made over

a thousand light bulbs that didn’t work. The world would have called them mistakes. He

said he learned a thousand ways not to make a light bulb.

The way to avoid mistake is experience. The way to get experience —MISTAKES.

Don’t feel bad because you messed up with something. Don’t be afraid to venture out

In to a good thing because you are afraid that you might mess up.

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, another is busy making mistakes and

becoming superior.

Millie’s thought for today; there are endless choices that many never take advantage of

because people think we are going to live forever. Life moves on very fast and we are

going to make mistakes. Do not fret over the lost years, “It is better late then never,”

were my grandma’s words to urge me to pick up my bootstraps and to move on. Life is a

series of interruptions and we might as well accept these interruptions and look at them as

points from which to improve and learn from. There is no use in fretting over the “spilt

milk” as grandma use to say. We cannot turn back the hands of time so do not let hoping

and waiting be your way of doing things.

My quote for today, Grandma Hammons advice, “We only go around once child, so you

better make the best of it.”

We have to keep trying things we’re not sure we can pull off. If we just do the things we

know we can do…you don’t grow as much. You must take those chances on making big

mistakes. Cybill Shepherd

Niels Bohr {1885-1962} an expert is a man who has made all the mistakes that can be

made, in a narrow field.
