Seven Days Of Wisdom- Day 2: Learn From Your Mistakes

Hello friends and family. How goes it? Seven Days of Wisdom continues with one of my favorite words of wisdom.

“When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.”- The Dalai Lama

Each and every one of us is going to make mistakes throughout life. From leaving the washing out whites with a colored sock to something major like marrying the wrong person, when all the red flags are present. 

While we can’t be perfect, we can strive to better ourselves by learning from our mistakes. The issue is that some of us repeat the same thing over and over.

“As a dog returns to his own vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is no hope for a fool than for him.”– Proverbs 26: 11,12 New King James Version 

When we see someone make the same poor choices, we often speak ill of them. Not everyone can learn right away. Sometimes it takes something dramatic happening for us to get ourselves together. The best thing we can do is pray about it, learn from what we did, and press forward. 

Thank you for reading. God bless, and have a good day.

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.

It’s a wise person who said learn from other people’s mistakes so you won’t have to make them all yourself. Learn from other people’s marriages so when the time comes, you’ll choose the right partner. That’s one “mistake” that’s hard to recover from.
