"If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul." - Rabbi Harold Kushner

This is an interesting Fact about the World:
No matter how Smart you are
No matter how Talented

how Nice

how Exceptionally Gifted you are
You are judged by your mistakes.
Eveyone makes mistakes--
Even the most seemingly noble and dignified among us--
even those you wouldn't expect.
Even You. Even Me.
Then, by a roll of the dice,
those Mistakes are revealed--
And our Lives are changed.
Like a stone thrown into a mirror,

A Mistake can shatter an Image.

A Mistake can destroy a Life.

A Mistake can break a Trust.

A Mistake can make you question Yourself.
This is an intersting Fact about the World:
Your Mistakes are not a Secret,
Your secrets are never safe,
Your Life is One Big Gamble,
And you're judged by your Mistakes.
