When we make mistakes, we cannot turn the clock back and try again. All we can do is use the present well.

Mistakes are part of life. Everyone makes them. Everyone regrets them. But some learn from them and some end up making them again. It’s up to you to decide if you’ll use your mistakes to your advantage.

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.

When I look back on my life, I see pain, mistakes, and heartache. When I look in the mirror, I see strength, learned lessons, and pride in myself.

Don’t quit because something went wrong. Quit because you tried your hardest and nothing made it better.

You are strong when you know your weaknesses. You are beautiful when you appreciate your flaws. You are wise when you learn from your mistakes.

I owe no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past or my insecurities. I am growing and learning. 

Don’t stress over past mistakes because there’s nothing you can do to change them. Focus on your present and create your future today.

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

I’m stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because I have known sadness.

At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.

View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’

The only mistake in life is the lesson not learned.

Forget past mistakes and forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do now and do it.

Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you.

I’d rather have a life full of mistakes than a heart full of regret.

Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places.

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.

Mistakes are a great educator when one is honest enough to admit them and willing to learn from them.

Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own instead of someone else’s.
