At some point during each day I head over to this site to review the post(s).
I check to see how the photos turn out, think about how I should have made them larger or smaller and review the post.
Yesterday I gasped, and then giggled when I saw what I had done:
I’d put up a Travel Thursday post – and yesterday was Wednesday.
What Had Happened Was . . . .
See, what had happened was, I was excited about sharing the photo of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai and eagerly prepared the post.
I was supposed to set that one to post for Thursday and post something else for Wednesday – well, you get the picture.
Making Mistak3s .. . .
I giggled when I saw yesterday’s post, and then laughed at myself because the snafu wasn’t the first one I’ve made since I began these daily posts.
I’ve gotten my count incorrect, and after making that mistake a few times between January and February, I went out and purchased a calendar that shows the number of the current day in the year, and how many days remain.
With that calendar in hand my mistakes became fewer – but I still made them.
What I Learned
I’m a perfectionist at heart, yet I’m so happy I’ve reached a point in my life that I can literally LAUGH at myself when things don’t turn out . . . . Perfectly.
Instead of being ticked, I’m tickled that not only do I make certain mistakes once, I’m prone to make them two, three, four times . . . or more.
I also learned that some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
Am I advocating sloppiness? Of course not. What I do advocate is the freedom to make mistakes, accepting the fact that mistakes happen – and realizing if they do, it’s ok, because there’s always tomorrow.
There’s always tomorrow, and we can never have too much fun.
