From Mistake to Mission

here’s the thing:
every sorrow, every pain, every mistake I’ve made; every bad turn, every bad haircut, every bad boyfriend, every god awful shameful experience got me here, right here, to this place. this place. my marriage, my friendships, my tribe, my work, my writing, my home, my life.

and all those mistakes & fuck-ups made me a better woman.
it’s true. not a perfect woman, but a better, kinder, more compassionate woman.

and the thing is, the kicker – when we use our mistakes to inspire someone, encourage someone, another person – it kinda simultaneously turns into our mission.
it’s true.
it’s like magic: from mistake to mission.

good goddess, we’re capable of so much goodness.
so much.
