Favorite Mistake – Is there a mistake you’ve made that turned out to be a blessing — or otherwise changed your life for the better? Tell us all about it.

No, not really anything to tell. To the best of my recollection, my mistakes were mistakes. They generally turned out as one would expect. Badly. Some of my intentional choices also turned out to be mistakes, but that’s life, eh?

Other than missing a turn on a map and discovering a good restaurant, unexpected little town, or hidden beach? Such ordinary events are not blessings. More like a definition of serendipity.

So nope, sorry. Can’t think of any.

  1. There IS something that has a higher viewpoint and better plan than me. It’s guidance and protection that has often overridden my petty ideas has saved me many times.


    1. I have more intentions that went wrong than mistakes that went (sort of) right … and sometimes, you can only see when a wrong was righter than you thought half a lifetime later. It’s all relative.


  2. So many, many mistakes recalled. Can’t remember any that turned out to be the blessing in disguise. Maybe it will come to me. Mebbe.


  3. When I make a mistake, which is more often than I care to admit, I have no expectation that they will turn out to be a blessing. I just hope that the outcome won’t be as bad as the mistake I made.


  4. I’ve made lots of mistakes, some intentional, but mostly not. Regardless of how bad they seemed at the time, I’ve always come out the other side a little smarter than before, and perhaps a little more grateful.
