I can't believe how many mistakes I make every single day. Sometimes, I think to myself.... "I must be stupid." Then I realize that there are always reasons as to why we make mistakes and as long as we learn from it - then that is all that counts.
To make a mistake is human, but to blame it on someone else, that's even more human

Today for instance, I woke up and forgot to put a hair cap on when I went for a shower, then without realizing it, left my jewelry beside my bed, and even forgot to order the right coffee. I missed "skinny" off "skinny flat white". 

Crazy, right?

Apparently, I am not alone. 

Callum, who sits beside me, didn't make things any easier. He offered to pick me up lunch while he was out. At our favorite lunch place, they give you two choices in each take-out container, and instead of putting two in the same take-out container, he asked for two separate containers. Now, I grew up in a family where you eat what is put in front of you. Needless to say, I can't move. I feel so full that I will be rolling out of the office today.

So, I suppose... not only am I not alone, mistakes are clearly common place. Fancy that!
