Go Ahead and Mess Up

So many of us find ourselves paralyzed by possibilities. Whether it’s choosing how to interact with a potential partner or one of our children or choosing a new career path, the stakes seem so high to us that we want to know exactly the “right” direction so we can avoid messing up.

This, of course, is impossible. Even if it were possible, it makes for a burdensome life, one in which vibrant relationships are crushed.

Do you really want to go through life being afraid to take chances, to follow your dreams? Certainly not! So, figure out what you really believe, own what you really want most, and then choose accordingly. When you “mess up”, see that as an opportunity to grow. Acknowledge your misstep and keep going.
