Quirky Ramblings #5 // Making mistakes is OKAY!! β€

Hey fellow popcorns! 🍿

Oh my *facepalm* I think that was one of the worst intros ever, but nevermind! I’m going with it aha.

I’m so sorry guys, I never got round to writing this post yesterday, so can we just pretend I published it on the last day of May…?!

Anyways, can I have a round of applause because today is…

The 5th post of Quirky Ramblings *applause ++ cheering*

No explanation, the title pretty much gives it away so let’s jump straight into it shall we?!

(I think that was the shortest introduction to my post I’ve ever done)

We all make mistakes, don’t we? I mean we’re only human. It’s a fact: we’re going to mess up. I mean what can we expect? We are not perfect. We are not idol beings, forever doing things right. But if we mess up, did we necessarily do anything wrong? I think I just confused myself with what I just said sodon’t worry if that confused y’all !

Mistake is an act or judgement that is misguided or wrong.

It doesn’t matter if you make mistakes. I’ve made so many in my life, that I stopped counting a long time ago πŸ˜‚ We all make them, if you say you’ve made no mistakes, then you are a terrible liar.

The most important thing though if you make a mistake, is to learn from that mistake. It could be as simple as next time you take an exam, using the time left over at the end when you’ve finished the paper to re-read your answers. once made the mistake of doing that, and I lost out on a lot of marks.

Or, it could be as complicated as losing a friend because you all got in an argument but you never listened to what they had to say and immediately accused them of being in the wrong.

But how can we fix our mistakes? This is a question I have asked myself repeatedly. Maybe sometimes it’s as simple as saying “sorry” and just moving on but it can be so much more complicated than that. Maybe, there is no way to fix the mistake you have made, but as long as you have learnt from that mistake and (hopefully πŸ˜‚) never made that mistake again, I see that as some sort of peace with your mistakes. I’m saying mistakes way too much in one sentence πŸ˜‚β€

In addition, always admit to your mistakes! There is nothing shameful about it. Don’t blame it on someone else, or pretend it wasn’t you because remember: your the only person you would be lying to.

Short ‘n’ sweet post but here are some quotes (as always! ❀)

Image result for if you're not making mistakes you're not trying hard enough
@tamelessdesigns posted to Instagram: Everyone makes mistakes. It is how you learn, grow and expand yourself. No matter the mistake, no matter how big or small... it's not permanent. Life will go on, life will continue. What you can do, is learn from that mistake and grow from it! Don't let anyone tell you any differently.  . . So go out there and make mistakes and lots of them! Get excited because then you learn what doesn't work. You aren't going to do anything perfectly when you first start.
Sometimes we fall sometimes we stumble but we can't stay down. We can't allow life to beat us down. Everything happens for a reason and it builds character in us and it tells us what we are about and how strong we really are when we didn't think we could be that strong. - Gail Devers - There are moments where we just fall so hard that it seems as though we can't find a way back to where we want to be. But if we look at our situation in a different light our circumstances aren't as bad as we thou
Great quote as we think about our week ahead.  #bujopros  #Repost @cre8tivesun with @repostapp. ・・・ The next prompt for @jennyhighsmith #letteritmarch - a good lesson for sure!

  4. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Aw I’m a popcorn!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Also the whole we make mistakes we’re only human reminded me of myself a few weeks back. Like I forgot to tell my parents about paying my school fees and we had to go meet the manager to pay it. And I remember the night before I was practicing what to tell him and that was like my dialogue πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. Yass πŸ˜‚ Popcorns for life πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Wow, don’t worry that’s literally me aha ❀ Like we make mistakes like that all the time, and it’s totally fine! I’m so sorry for late reply ++ if I’ve not been keeping up with your blog just haven’t looked at blog for whole week xx
      Thank you so much tho!
      Amber x

  5. Girllll this was amazinggg! Loved it, just what I needed at the start of the day (it’s 4:48PM here but since it’s Ramadan my sleeping schedule is all messed up and I only woke up thirty minutes ago πŸ˜‚)! Everything said here was so damn true and really inspiring! Loved itt xo

    UniquelyMe ❄️

    1. Aw, thanks so much UniquelyMe ❀ Ahh, that sucks. Like no food or drink? How are you coping. That’s also crazy, but like I guess it was a nice, inspirational start to your late-starting day πŸ˜‚
      Thank you so much and sorry for late reply πŸ˜‰
      Amber x
      ps. Ig I’ve not been keeping up with your blog, I am SO sorry just things have been cray and just haven’t had time to go on my blog at all xx

      1. No problem! ❀️ Yeah, but it’s surprisingly not as hard as people think! It’s over now, though, we’ve just had Eid so back to normal (;
        If I’m honest, I kinda miss Ramadan!
        Again, you’re welcome!

        Awh hey don’t even worry about it! Life definitely gets wayyy too busy sometimes and I get that! (Like, I took a six month hiatus once πŸ˜‚) Write when your heart tells you to, as a lovely blogger once told me xo

        UniquelyMe ❄️

        1. Wow! ❀ I’m pretty shocked at that. I really want to give it a go sometime but then I’m not part of the religion so I feel like people will think I’m mocking them ❀

          Aww, thanks for understanding ❀ I know right, it’s so stressful sometimes to keep up with everything! x That’s so amazing and great, I’m planning probably to save that fr when my exams start, as I don’t want to always be going on hiatus ❀ That is such a lovely quote, gahh I love it, so motivational and inspirational! That was a mouthful xD
          Amber x

          1. Yeah, right? And nooo don’t think like that! I know a few people who fasted for a day just to try it out – it’s not called mockery, it’s just called being curious! Don’t let other people’s opinions stop you from being you and doing something you want to do! It’s your life – everyone else can just… buzz off πŸ˜‚
            No problem girl, I’m just about catching up with my blog and basically everything else after so long, trying to keep myself together here πŸ˜‚ Let’s do this together, girl, I believe in you πŸ™ŒπŸΎ Haha I know right! Credits to Suzanne, and I’ll send you the link to her blog later xo She commented it on one of my posts once and I really liked it – just stuck in my head since then.

            UniquelyMe ❄️

            1. Aw, thanks UniquelyMe! ❀ Yes, I literally might give it a go next time because I’m really curious, you have inspired me! I’m just interested, so thanks so much for re-assuring me and telling me ❀ Exactly! I’m glad you phrased it like that πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
              I know right! Same here, it’s so stressful, blogging is like a train and once you fall off you have to run real quick to get back on again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That was a terrible example but I think you understand what I mean πŸ˜‚ Aw, thanks! Right back at you, we can jump on that train πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That would be great, she sounds like a lovely blogger xx Definitely, things like that are important to remember ❀
              Amber xx

              1. No problem girl! xo Honestly, it’s definitely an experience! πŸ˜‚ So so true, that’s like the best way to describe it – it’s so hard to keep up, especially with all these amazingly professional bloggers out there! Like I know someone who got to 500 in ONE YEAR! How crazy is that?!
                Very true ❀️

                UniquelyMe ❄️

                1. Thanks!! x πŸ˜‰ Yep, I love trying new things, new experiences all of that so it’s going to be good I think aha. I know – it actually seems like a good example now πŸ’™πŸ’™ I know right – those super, organised bloggers out there who manage to post 3 times a week and just how?! I struggle to post once *facepalm* xD Oh my gosh! 500 followers?! xx Or posts?! Cuz both are insane xx
                  Amber xx

                  1. Yeah, I think you’ll definitely enjoy it (: I know, right??? Like I have SO MUCH on my plate right now, with like a million exams, and I’m probably gonna start getting tuition soon, so that’s just going to be more that I can handle, but ugh I guess I should try? πŸ˜‚ Whoops, should have made that clearer, haha, yeah 500 followers! I know, right?!

                    UniquelyMe ❄️ xox

                    1. Awesome! πŸ’™ I can do a blog post post about it – add it to my TBP (To Be Posted – I just invented it aha I think aha xD)! Gosh, I know what you mean, I have a grade for my violin ( I have to practice every day for a freakin’ hour liker what…?!), lots of revision for exams, behind on blogging goshhhhh. Good luck on the tuition πŸ’™ Give it a go, like just organise your time I guess *look at the most dis-organised person ever giving advice LOL*! x 500 followers…?! That’s flippin’ crazy! I reached my 6th month blogging and hadn’t reached 100 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
                      Amber xx
                      ps. Your going to be fine with everything! Just keep muddling through I guess…?! Just don’t stop blogging, I’d miss you wayy too much! xx

                    2. Yes!! That would be amazing!! Ooh I like the sound of that actually, TBP πŸ˜‚ Like TBR but with blogging πŸ˜‚ Oh wow that sounds hard! Hope it goes well – fingers crossed! Same oh my god I just feel so guilty but like… 😭 Thank you, I’m dreading it πŸ˜‚ Haha that’s me in my whole life πŸ˜‚ Awhh don’t even worry about it, girl! You’re such an incredible person and I have no doubt that you’ll get there and further sooner than you think xox

                      UniquelyMe ❄️
                      PS/ Awh you’re so niceee asdfghjkl thank you so much! I’d miss you too (: and speaking of, thank you so so much for the nomination!

                    3. Hey gurl πŸ’™ Yess! It’s such a cool abbreviation, huh?! Exactly! It’s like the blogging version of TBR πŸ’™ What can I say, don’t expect any less from a genius πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Just kidding, I’m not a genius. Not even close aha xD Me too! And thank you so much – trust me, aha, it is πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I get you, and don’t feel guilty πŸ’™ Aw, don’t worry, it will be fine πŸ’™ You might just enjoy it…?! xD Tell me about it! Somehow I can give good advice to other people I just don’t seem to be able to do it myself πŸ˜‰ Aww, thanks so much UniquelyMe, that means so much to me x That has literally made my day -thank you!! xxx πŸ’™πŸ’™ We’re at 72 so I’m really happy!! x
                      Amber xx πŸ’™
