“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
– L. M. Montgomery
Why I chose this author quote
When I first saw this quote, I found it comforting. I grew up believing that mistakes are embarrassing. I didn’t talk about them. I didn’t reflect on them. I tried very hard not to make them. And I didn’t learn anything from them.
Over time, I’ve come to understand the value of mistakes. I’ve realised that seeing the consequences of things we get wrong helps us understand our own impact. The level of success we can realistically achieve without having to try something again, or fix a problem we have caused, is limited.
Once I stopped fearing mistakes and accepted I was going to make some, I started to learn from them. And I’ve learned a lot more from my mistakes than I have from what went well.
What this author quote means to me
This quote acts as a reminder that mistakes are an inescapable aspect of life. For me, it’s nice to think that tomorrow is a new day in which I can try, fail, and try again. I can make mistakes, clean up the mess, learn, grow and become better.
