Thankful Thursday - Hats Off

"Take chances, make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave. And you can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you." Mary Tyler Moore. 

Moore was a star - not just because she acted in movies and tv shows, but because she had a 
fighting spirit to push through life's tough stuff, the things that brought her to her knees, and yet, she refused to give up. She stayed in the game. I can't imagine losing my child or having a brain tumor.

She was no 'ordinary' person - none of us are. Everyone has something in their life they have to deal with - a broken heart, a debilitating illness, lost dreams. To get back up and keep getting up after being sideswiped by the bad, the heartbreak and the awful, is brave. 

Mary Tyler Moore lived the good and fought through the bad. 
Hats off to everyone who like Moore, never gives in or gives up, who knows giving up is never an option. 

Happy Thursday, Guys.

I teared up when I heard she passed away... it's so true we all have something and usually, we are the only ones who can deal with it... when I look at what other people have to handle, it's unbelievable to me... we are stronger than we think, I have to continually remind myself of that... have a great week Nikki xox

Mistakes are inevitable. We all make them, we all stumble.
The good news - they offer us the possibility to learn and grow.
By the way, there are a lot of wise quotations about mistakes and learning from them. For example: "to err is human", "You live and you learn", "It's only those that do nothing that make no mistakes".
