It's all part of the process....

I escaped Flagstaff, work and a few responsibilities for a week and a half, and it flew by- quickly. 

As I climbed, laughed, loved and lived every moment, it reminded me of what is truly the meaning of life: to get creative in all of our endeavors, to get out there make mistakes and to learn from them. Mistakes are of greatest importance and can be our greatest reward. Realizing and accepting the simple fact: there will be mistakes, answers are not black or white, and by making mistakes is what drives us to discover and reveal new creative juices. Mistakes can take us to a higher level of personal and social understanding of ourselves, and in our immediate environments. 

We learn, and we learn quickly. 

β€œJust tell yourself, Duckie, you're real quite lucky," to quote Dr. Seuss. 

You are lucky, I am lucky. Mistakes lead to an exciting life and are to be appreciated. We are lucky to make mistakes.

So do yourself a favor, get after it, live fiercely and make a few mistakes en route.

Learn, reflect, understand, and get comfortable with constant change and surprising results. 

Don't limit your experience. It's all part of the process.
