I've always wanted to play the piano, so I finally did something about it and took a few beginner piano lessons. As I plunked away on those black and white keys, sometimes it sounded beautiful and sometimes it sounded awful. And I'm okay with that. Do you know why? Because "I'm learning."
It's okay if I make mistakes, because...I'm learning.
It's okay to do things over and over again, because...I'm learning.
It's okay to ask questions and get help, because...I'm learning.
That's when I realized the freedom those two little words bring and the pressure that's released when I utter the phrase "I'm learning."
Now I apply those two words to everything...work, people, money, marriage, parenting, etc. I'm still learning in all those areas, and I bet you are too. So, the next time you make a mistake, remind yourself that you're still learning and keep going.
