"Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn and you will."
I have the power to set kids up for failure or success. I am always thinking ahead and figuring "what if" scenarios. I suppose in a way it is setting me up for success as well.
Sometimes we learn better from mistakes. But if I can find out the mistakes others have made and simply not do them I would prefer to learn that way. Some days...yes, some days...things will happen.
Finding humor in it while learning helps me remember, too.
