Quote................"The Greatest Mistake"

I choose a quote every day to give me some early food for thought. I was feeling no bueno yesterday and I hit a wall. However, I was saved:

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually fear you

will make one. ( here are my thoughts)

Mistake: error, fault, slip-up, inaccuracy. Lord have I made at lot of

those in my 21 years of life. In the past I have used mistake after

mistake as building blocks for the upsets of my life.......Worrying about not making another yet at the same time I was setting myself up for


Being the daughter of a junky I cling to the thought of me becoming a

junkie. How adaquete is this perception?….. I am my mothers child…

Are her mistakes my mistakes or do I simply fear the actions of her past?

Growing up wasn't fun but more often then less, it has shaped me to be

the woman I am. The inaccuracies of her life have yet to rub off on me

full blow.

By example I have not walked the path of error because I do not live in


Fear clogs the mind leaving you with absent hope…….It allows you to realize that you will never possess what you are willing to pursue……..

You must always be willing to go where you have never been, to create

something you have never had…that is life that is staring apprehension

in the face "shouting I wont be discouraged, I am not afraid of


I live my life by these words… " how you enter can decide how you

exit and I refuse to leave this place unchanged" the fear of mistakes

can tear those words out of my mouth if I let it…but I choose to chew

with my mouth closed.
