I Promise

It's going to happen.  

I will miss my flight.

 

I will break my website by accident.

 

I will say something or do something careless and end up hurting someone I love.

 

I will forget to send the email.

 

I will drop the ball.

 

Of course I will. I know it's true because the alternative is clearly false. I mean, really, could this statement possibly be true: I will never make another mistake for the rest of my life.

 

Somehow I don't think so.

 

I'm going to make mistakes, which still leaves me with a few options:

 

1) Am I going to let that stop me? Let that scare me?

 

2) What mistakes am I going to make? Will they be worth making, on projects worth doing?

 

3) How am I going to act after I make those mistakes?

 

The mistakes are guaranteed, I promise you - nobody escapes them. Character is not perfection. Character is the answers to these questions.
