Affirmation: Mistakes are the detours that direct me to a better me.
Mistakes help me travel on a journey and arrive as a better person. I get back up with new insight each time I stumble. There is a lesson to be learned in every situation.
I take time to reflect when I am down. I ask myself, "What did I do to get to this point?" and, "What can I do in the future to avoid this situation?"
Personal growth is the best outcome of any mistake. I am slow to anger because I once lost my temper and offended a loved one. My finances are in order because I once found myself buried in debt. Only truth enters my mind because I once found myself tangled up in a web of lies.
From each experience, I have learned that there is a light at the end of my tunnel. It would have been easy to allow rage, debt, and lies to reign my life, but I strive to choose a better way. I learned my lessons and I enjoy the fruits of peace, prosperity, and truth.
I acknowledge that we all have faults. Making mistakes is part of being human. I do not know everything. I will make mistakes and that is okay. It's what I do after that counts. I forgive myself and I choose not to dwell on my errors.
Mistakes are life's built-in lessons because there is no training course for life. Maintaining a pure heart helps me learn from my mistakes and avoid making them again.
