still learning

"I'm not good at making mistakes," the woman at the quilt shop confessed.
"You're not good at making mistakes?" I repeated gently, smiling.
"I don't like to make mistakes, I don't take it well," she added by way of clarification.
"But don't you know you have to make a thousand mistakes to be good at something," I joked.
"Mistakes are a sign of progress," I assured her.
 It means you're still learning, still improving.

My favourite quote this year that I've learned from Weight Watchers is Aim for Progress not perfection!
