Mistakes

Neil Gaiman just posted his New Year's message:

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you,and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art,or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.


I want to add/respond to that by saying that sometimes the biggest mistake is NOT to do something that you need to do. Don't make those mistakes.

Thanks for posting this. New Mistakes are important. Making the same old mistakes? not so much.
