Dumb people never learn from their mistakes. Smart people learn from their mistakes. Wise people learn from the mistakes other people make.
If this is the worst thing that happens to you today, you’re having a pretty good day.
As you go through life, you are going to make the best choices you can. The people around you will make their choices. Then the world will throw in whatever it comes up with. And you will wind up where you wind up in the end. If you are making your choices the best you can, the only other thing you can control is how you deal with the journey from here to there. So you might as well do your best to be happy on the way.
