Day 363/362: December 28, 2011

It was today that I realized that I made a mistake somewhere along the way.
I am on Day 363 with three more days in the year, and last time I checked there were not 366 days in this year. Oops.
It's a good thing I'm not a perfectionist, because if I was I would scroll through every single date trying to find the spot where I went wrong. And I might not find it on the first try, so then I might do it again. And if I was a perfectionist, when I found it I might go through and change every post since then to make it right.
Thank God I'm not.
I only scrolled through every post one and a half times before realizing that it would take me hours to change all the titles, so I made a deal with myself to not find the culprit of a post at all so that way I won't have to change it.
I'm only kind of twitching right now.

Today I'm thankful for mistakes.

Mistakes remind me that I am not perfect, no one is. When I am reminded of this, it makes it a whole lot easier to live. Really live. Live without worrying about what might happen if I make a mistake and things don't go perfectly.


  1. :) Good point. Reminds me of your post about getting too focused on taking pictures, and capturing the perfect shot instead of just enjoying it while it's live and in front of you! Good advice!

  2. such a good one! my immediate thought when reading this was exactly like you - thinking of how long it would take to remark each post. i would so be tempted to do it too and i commend your will power to refrain. ;)


I'm always *thankful* for your comments- they make me smile:)
