I am not sure whether I should be calling them mistakes, failures, setbacks, obstacles, hiccups, challenges or wrong doings.
But I can tell you my aspiring cheerful reader that the more mistakes I do the more I look back and laugh at myself.
I feel honored with all the mistakes medals and championships I collected and won throughout the years.
I achieved a new world record in sucking at relationships, I also managed to finish first in the race of quitting the corporate life, I won a gold in getting rid of what I thought friends, and I aced it when I let a thief steal my life.
A true and honored champion I feel right now.

This morning I realized that my biggest mistake I ever committed was blaming others and the circumstances around me for my current life’s outcome.
If I go for an interview tomorrow and I get asked “so tell me what have you been up to lately, what you do for a living, how fit do you see yourself in the current position?”
I would stumble, I wouldn’t know what to say.
I am now officially nobody and I am extremely and humbly excited to be so.
Being nobody gives me freedom to do as I please, to go anywhere and play a new character or a new me every time.
My new cv is who I am and what I do.
For the last few months, inside of me I blamed a woman I loved for leaving me, I blamed life for causing pain to people I care about, I blamed a #🔪💉%🗡+🔨*⛏ thief for stealing my backpack, but I never blamed myself or my actions.
Did I know that my actions and decisions would land me to such life port?
No I didn’t.
I wanted to land in Florence but I didn’t and I didn’t set an alternative plan should the previous one stray.
Did I know that a woman I wanted to get married to simply won’t happen?
No I didn’t.
When I was so engrossed with my daily briefly exciting life, I only had one plan, one direction and expected one outcome.
Later I realized life doesn’t operate on such false notion; one has to put at least 3 alternative plans in case one or two of their results stray or simply do not happen.
For example, if you go buy ice cream and all you would be thinking about on your way is the taste of dark chocolate cookies melting in your mouth, when you get there, the funny obese lady shocks you with the sad news that there ain’t any more chocolate cookies.
What are you to do?
Start crying and do nothing!
Or accustom yourself to try a different flavor or look for chocolate cookie else where knowing that, that very flavor you loved from that very lady would never to be found again but a better flavor maybe waiting for you elsewhere?
Today I am sorry for blaming anyone or life for my current day.
Today I will make the most of it, I will learn, read, exercise, write, love, help, eat chocolate and make mistakes.
