Everything I have ever really needed to learn, I learned through the power of mistakes or, to be fair, from making mistakes. Big or small, these mistakes are the reason I have learned what my true calling is and for that I am forever grateful. These slip-ups which, I must admit, at times did feel that it was game over, the end of the world.
We often call ourselves failures when we err in life, thinking it is the worst of situations, but, as Janet Fitch has so elegantly quoted, “The phoenix must burn to emerge”, so must we feel the burn of failure in order to emerge as successful. In my humble opinion it is far better to regret the things you did than the things you didn’t do. This is a motto I have lived by my entire life.
It was the freedom to blend and pair spices and flavors that cooking gave me, and the countless mistakes I made, thatopenned me up to the idea of applying similar concepts to cosmetics. In the process, my cooking drastically improved as well! *wink*
Of course, all of this would be impossible to achieve if I had given up after my first setback! Even if you fall, even if you stumble, get back up again and do your thing! The entire struggle is only making you better, stronger and helping you keep moving forward.
Success is only as near as you want it to be, so keep on trying till the end!
Until next time,
Lots of love,
