Sunday Poser # 75

Sadje is our hostess for the Sunday Poser question

This week my question is:

How quick are you in admitting your mistakes?
I suppose it all depends on what the mistake was and why we made it.
I’ve made some classics, but luckily for me, they have had a positive outcome, even if it did take some considerable time.

My first marriage was a mistake, and in hindsight I realised that we both got married for all the wrong reasons.
Moving away from my home town afterwards wasn’t a mistake as it was the making of me. However, the circumstances of where I was living was but pride stopped me from admitting I’d made another major error in judgement until things came to a head in 1988.

Little mistakes we can usually get away with without catastrophe, but mistakes are part of life’s rich tapestry. Yet from the occasional dropped stitch, a new pattern can emerge, perhaps enhancing the original, or even complimenting it.
The saddest part is when we don’t learn from them.

IMO one of the most annoying phrases currently used in politics is ‘Lessons will be learnt’……….. but they never are.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well said Di, mistakes are the step stones of our future.

    Politics and learning never hold hands!! I do agree that we are composed of mistakes that form us – for the better or worse…

  4. Realizing the mistakes I am thinking of are not huge that would affect the world but I do learn from my own mistakes and it is a shame that more people don’t. Why erase history when we can see where things went awry and do things differently?
