Life is messy; mistakes are often made as we are imperfect humans living in an imperfect world and sometimes our mistakes are the best thing that could happen to us..

When I think (very very briefly) on some of my rather large mistakes I cringe slightly….funnily enough men choices are involved in some of those mistakes!

Everyone, but everyone makes mistakes and who is to say that it is a mistake anyway? I love the saying ‘That is why pencils have rubbers’.

Sometimes lessons can be learnt, new opportunities open up that would not have come about before you made the ‘mistake’, you have fun, it helps you to look at things in a different light, you quickly check yourself and think ‘Oohh not good, won’t do that again’, or words that are not appropriate to post on the internet fly through the air.

At the end of the day it does not matter as at least you are trying something. I have never been known to take the safe option but I trust that in the future as I hurtle forwards off a new cliff I leap in an adjusted way from past lessons learnt.

Be quick to forgive yourself when things go awry, say sorry if appropriate to other folk who got caught up in it, keep making your plans and more importantly take action.

Still be prepared to leap.

    Dear Jane,

    Whatever it is you feel you’ve made a mistake about, Jane, your true friends, of which you seem to have very many, will be there for you. Unconditional friendship!
