“A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. (George Bernard Shaw)
Doing nothing, is not “doing nothing.” Making mistakes is not simply “making mistakes.” Shaw’s suggesting that our life is a creative experiment in which we strive to find true meaning and to make something of our lives that’s more than just climbing the career ladder and gathering a pretty collection of consumer goods. He means that it’s honorable to spend our lives engaged in a search for what is truly meaningful, to live an examined life, to see life as a creative endeavor with ourselves as the raw material for the creative process.
The challenge is living a life better than we have done in the past, with faith that this is possible, and with the attitude that falling (or failing) is an inevitable part of the learning process.
Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you experience mistakes while pursuing a meaningful life. 🙏🏻 PS: Remember to hold the ones you love just a little closer and tighter this week (without expectations).”
