“If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.” – Tallulah Bankheaddv2051009

We all make mistakes and I love this quote because it celebrates owning those mistakes and recognizes how working through them can shape you, how it makes you who you are. A person without mistakes, well, doesn’t exist.

But to do it all over again exactly the same way would be silly, yes, I own my mistakes and where they’ve gotten me, but was there wasted time? Of course! Was there excessive heartache? Oh hell yeah there was. So while I appreciate where I am today, I would have liked to have gotten here sooner, because it’s a good place, it’s where I’m meant to be and I accept each day with open arms – I am stronger today than I was yesterday, and that’s always something to celebrate.
