I could not help but wonder how after reading and studying for an exam, mistake can’t just be avoided. You must find a situation where someone leaves the hall saying ” oh no…I wish i wrote this! Or “How could i have made such a mistake? Well, i guess the fear of exams is the beginning of mistakes…#Smiles. I am letting go of my worries as i get to the round up my papers soon. 

Your mistake should be your motivation, not your excuses. My god mother would always say “They are proof to life that you are trying”, even though you may not feel like you are. I don’t find it funny each time she says that but then, she’s right. (Am sure she’s smiling reading this)…..I saw mistakes as tragic occurrence, for every mistake i made, i was always broken. I always wanted to do things right. I was more of a perfectionist, never gave room to mistakes. The only thing I loved to hear was “well-done”, the pressure to be perfect kept consuming me. Now, i don’t worry about that anymore, I’m constantly reminding myself that it’s ok to make mistakes​ but it’s the lesson learnt from the mistakes that makes the difference. What annoys me the most is how you can do nice things for people all the time and they never notice. But once you make one mistake, its never forgotten. No one likes to be remembered for a mistake they did in the past. Do you?

We need to remember that life goes on. With or without us, it will keep going. It’s time we got over our mistakes because we just might miss something, or someone, important. I live this life every day, i don’t exist.  I make my share of mistakes, and every lesson I learn, I learn the hard way. I do the best that I can and i hope that everyone around me understands that i’m “trying my best”. 
Sometimes, I wish I could live my life without making any wrong turns, choices and decisions but that’s impossible. A path like that doesn’t exist, believe me.. We fail. We trip. We get lost. We make mistakes. And little by little one step at a time we move forward. It’s all we can do.
