Mistakes happen. This is something that I remind myself of over and over when something goes wrong. Making a mistake just means that you are human, that you are learning and it is a good reminder that you aren’t superman.
Instead of letting the mistake freak you out and make you want to hit your head against a brick wall (which won’t help anything) give yourself time to react, calm down and then think through what went wrong, why it went wrong, and how to keep it from happening again. It is your humanity which builds relationships and allows brides to connect with you so when mistakes happen be glad that they happened, learn from them and move forward. Make sure to read the article by Margaret Heffernan on celebrating mistakes that you make. What do you think?
