Live and learn from your mistakes "Live and learn from your mistakes," this is something I believe in, and I strongly think that everyone should live by this quote. Living and learning from mistakes is very big part of my life, and I also believe that it should be part of your life as well. Yes, it does have it disadvantages, but 99% of the time it works out. So sit back, relax, and enjoy.

Firstly, where and when this has come to my knowledge. Well, many years ago when I was about 8 years old. There was an older lady who lived across the street from me. Her name was Helen Robertson. She would always teach me things, about life, and how I should handle situation. I would go over there everyday, and we would do something-different everyday, and also learn something as well. Now that I'm older I realize that she was an extreme impact on my life, and I wish to this day she were around for me to share it with her.

Secondly, I have used this everyday of my life, ever since I can remember, and I know that I'm always learning, or getting something positive out of it. This is always a win-win situation. Here's a scenario; you do something wrong, but as long as you get something out of it. It was worth your time to screw it up. You have to remember that everyday of you life is precious, and you need to try to always learn from what you do wrong.

Thirdly, this has also hurt me too. I don't have that many bad experiences, but there are a few. Manly to do with stupid thing, like something illegal or something you do with your friends. Say I stole something, and my friend got caught. I would think that it was all right for me to do this, and I don't need to worry about getting caught. Besides that, it is a pretty much fool proof moral, I always say.

Living and learning from your mistakes is the way to go, and I would recommend it to anyone I know. So I have covered in this easy, how I learned about this moral, how it has helped me, and how it has hurt me. So I hope that I have informed you good, and I would hope that after reading this, that you will consider "Living and learning from your mistakes," I know I do. And make the best out of your life; it is short, and precious.
