“Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.” Oscar Wilde
The reversed Seven of Cups is saying, “No, you didn’t make all the wrong choices.”
Some, sure. You’re human. But that’s the heart of life on the physical plane, more or less. But individual mistakes fade. What you DO with those mistakes however, how you use them, is yours forever.
Find the perfection in your imperfection by making each mistake useful, worthy, worthwhile. Use them to make a roadmap into your future and suddenly, they are transformed from screw-ups into information. Very useful information at that.
Oftentimes, we get a lot more out of taking wrong turns than the right ones. They give us more depth, more character, more understanding. Each misstep is clearing away another bit of glass, allowing a better picture.
Trust the combination of experience and intuition—it’s very potent! Fear of making mistakes leads us astray. Confidence that even our “mistakes” can add to our life makes us strong.
I’ve made some grand errors along the way. While I didn’t relish the experience directly, I am eternally grateful for the education provided. In that way, they’ve served me much more than a perfectly smooth, straightforward path could have.
So don’t let your missteps cause you self-doubt. Just learn from the damn things and keep on going, okay? Where you are at right here, right now, is exactly where you are supposed to be. Know that and make use of it.
Do past mistakes leave you questioning yourself?
