Why Read It? Because mistakes are only mistakes if you don't learn anything from them.

  • Each time you make a mistake, whether on purpose or accidentally, you have an opportunity to learn a valuable life lesson.
  • Whatever you've done—or failed to do—can be transformed into an opportunity for growth if you're willing to recognize your errors.
  • If you're caught up in trying to be perfect, blameless and flawless, you'll miss out on what your mistakes are trying to teach you.

"Take your mistakes and fill them at the pharmacy of life and redeem them for the lesson that they were in your life to teach you."
