“coming here was a mistake”





Understanding that as humans we are allowed to make mistakes and it is inevitable. We go hard on ourselves to make sure not to make a mistake but it is essentially what makes us human, our imperfections and the likes. With mistakes we grow and learn to become the ones we’re meant to be each day.  






-What will this season by about? Why choose to talk about mistakes? 


·    It is part of the journey, mistakes is a very personal experience and processing them is quite exquisite and unique for everybody.

The truth is we will never be perfect. 



·    It’s in our humanness that we learn through a hit and miss process.

·    We make sense out of the things in this world, we do something and we eventually find out what works for us in both mistakes and success. 

·    No matter how hard we work we will never be safe from making mistakes because things change and the concept of right and wrong also evolves with time. 

·    These mistakes will make up who you’ve become and becoming, doesn’t mean it’s bad it just sheds a light on the things you may have slipped up on.
