Gaining Motivation Through Mistakes

It’s hard sometimes to see the bigger picture, especially after thinking I’ve messed up somehow. Doesn’t matter, big or small, I tend to get down on myself and feel bad after making mistakes.

To make a long story short, the other night I fell way off my health journey path and I didn’t feel good about it when I awoke the following morning. Typically, after deviating from my health journey, I would fall into a cycle of self-pity for weeks or even months at a time. But something different happened. I recognized the experience as something more than a mistake to regret and used it as a motivational tool instead. My mistake became my muse.

This health journey is changing me in ways I hadn’t recognized. My confidence is growing and I was able to see that through my reaction.

So it makes me wonder. When you’re grateful for a mistake, is it still a mistake?

I am finally beginning to do all the things I think about doing. Instead of just thinking about all the things I want to do.
