Messes usually have a negative connotation but I’ve found that with each mess I’ve made I’ve learned more than I could have if I participated in a “clean situation”. Sophomore year of college I began to realize that I wouldn’t be the same person I am today if I hadn’t struggled through each mess I’ve made. With the help of so many loved ones, I now realize that most messes can be cleaned up and if not, I must learn to work around the consequences of my actions.
“Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Zahir
