I Made a Lot

I think life is about experiences, and mistakes. We learn from our mistakes and that's how we mature. I can't point out a mistake and say I wish I hadn't done that.

I am not sure if it was a mistake, though it did not fit the definition of a perfect deed, I think it taught me something.

@ Naomi: LOL! but you have your privacy. and that is worth a fortune

Oh my (our) mistake was a funny one in retrospect; we built our house on a lovely patch of ground on our property...the mistake was building it 5 km inland from the front gate ! Not only will an inch (25mm) of rain isolate us from the main road, it also cost us a *sweet fortune* to have the electricity and phone line connected to the house ! We almost had to take out a second mortgage to cover the cost.

@ Paco: thank you

Wise observation. <br />

Hehehehehe, maybe you are the wisest person on the planet, have you checked?<br />

It's hard to learn from the mistakes, the first step is to admit that it was a mistake. My husband never admits to his mistakes he always finds an excuse to blame it on others.

Yup, that's all I have to say about that! thank you cntry loner

LOL. So true on both LV!!!!!

@ CntryLoner: well said, I have some regrets too, but I think if I had the chance of turning back time I would do them again!!<br />

@ Windlion: Always listen to your wife. that's the moral of the story

My worst mistake, about fifteen years ago, was deciding that I'd done everything that was worth doing. Not.<br />

Almost made that mistake again late last year, but my wife left me with some "honey-dos" to take care of first -- and how about that, it's springtime again!

I agree LV. Mistakes IS how we learn and grow. I do have a few regrets but I learned from them and hopefully will never repeat them.
