Mistakes are Expected

Guest Post: I love that one of the basic items included with a sewing machine is this seam ripper. It’s like the manufacturers know you’ll need it. It basically says, “Hey, you’re not perfect. You’ll need to redo this. Often. Often enough that this is a standard tool expected to accompany the machine. It’s included—no extra charge—because the work itself will be hard enough. Mistakes are expected.”

Keep Celebrating

At some point, we seem to lose the excitement for celebrating another year of life.  What would life look like if adults once again harnessed some of that genuine kid-like excitement of celebrating special days?  And, of course, growing out of celebrations extends beyond birthdays, especially when considering the additional layer of when we expect things to happen.  For example, reaching personal goals or completing educational and employment milestones.
