no need to throw in the towel

Freedom isn't worth having if it doesn't include the freedom to make mistakes.

Mahatma Gandhi

...especially if we learn from them.

I remember hearing a man speak one time who said we should never fear failure. He said the most successful people have failed over and over and over again. They just didn't let it stop them. I feel that way about mistakes. I've made enormous mistakes in my life, and yes, if I had it to do over, knowing what I know now, I'd gladly change some of my decisions. Still, each of those decisions brought me to where I'm sitting right now, and I like this spot. Yes, it could be better, I could be better, but I have much to be grateful.

A mistake is an opportunity.
