Things go wrong sometimes even though I think I have prepared well.
There are issues I haven't thought about or things outside of my control, that occur at times.
The last time something like this happened to me, the phrase, "Don't cry over spilled milk," popped into my head."
I have a choice.
I can spend time kicking myself over what went wrong, or I can clean up the mess and then make a note to do something else than whatever it was that I just did.
I can't always guarantee a winning outcome but I can predict a different one.
I may not hit a home run every time, but I will learn valuable things I couldn't have learned any other way.
Making mistakes is not optional - we all make them. It's what we do with them that's important. Learning from a mistake means a course correction so it is not repeated.
Spilled milk doesn't have to slay me or sour me. It can actually serve me, if I let it.
The choice is up to me.
