Avoid making mistakes when you can

The old saying “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” has been used so often that many times, the true message and definition is lost. It is often used when mistakes have occurred. When mistakes happen, people with good intentions and pure purposes try to encourage us when we make a mistake or foolish choice. And I understand what others are trying to do with quotes and messages such as, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

However, many times these quotes and other “pick you up” encouragements just don’t seem to help me move on especially not in quick manner. Sometimes I just can’t automatically be happy with the things that have happened, mistakes can be hard to get over. Yes, I understand that without mistakes, how can one learn. Yet I believe that making better decisions to try and avoid those mistakes in the first place seems to be the better game plan in life.

Indeed there is wisdom in being able to learn from the mistakes I have run headlong into and hopefully will remember them before I repeat them. But those bad choices that led to the mistakes, looking back now, there was much evidence, warning signs, gut instincts, etc. that yelled enough wisdom for me to know how to avoid the mistake. Hindsight is the best sight of all and looking back, I can ask myself “What was I thinking?”

Mistakes are made all the time and moving beyond our past mistakes is truly important. Without messing up, how can we ever possibly learn as much as we do? Yet I believe that it is best to avoid making mistakes by listening to the messages that warn us. Telltale signs plus all-out serious warning flags are shouting words of wisdom along the way. It is best to heed these to avoid making as many mistakes as we possibly can.

Then if and when these mistakes do happen, we can refer to those “keep your chin up … hey, it was just bad luck … cheer up, Little Camper… when life gives you lemons make lemonade” encouragements.
