“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
~ Neil Gaiman
We are embarking on another year and my soul is craving some changes. And not just ordinary everyday changes, I am looking for some substantial shifts, it is time to be bold, to be brave. If anyone else is looking to shake things up then my wish for you is to make mistakes. Make them and then don’t stop, keep going. Reassess, revamp and make another move. The key to doing things you’ve never done before is to be willing to be bad at it. It is time to get used to the feeling that you don’t know what you are doing. Embrace the unknown and you can expand a little bit at a time.
Cheers to a new year filled with new adventures, some mistakes, and a few brilliant successes!
