The good side of committing a mistake is it leaves a lesson that we will never forget for the rest of our lives. The pain it brought, the tons of headaches, the tears, the worries and anxieties are enough to teach us one big lesson in life.
Everyday, lessons are learned in a thousand ways. Some through realizations. And some through reflections.
Two weeks ago, I watched a very good movie, “The Straight Story”. It’s about an old man, Alvin Straight, who decided to make up with his brother whom he had misunderstandings and hadn’t talk to for 10 years. He made up his mind to end the silences and the cold war upon knowing that his brother suffered from stroke. What’s more moving about the movie is the distance between the two of them is 300 miles. Alvin went in his brother’s place on his own, riding not a car but a lawn mower. He encountered lots of challenges along the way, but he didn’t give up. It must have been that everyone who watched this movie have thought of all the broken relationships they have now and in the past.
It’s never too late for everything. We can always start again.
