Think Before You Act

Mistakes are meant to be made, but how many mistakes is too many? What would you consider a “mistake”?  To me, a mistake is a learning opportunity to better myself as a student,adult,friend, and mother. Everyone makes mistakes, but not everyone learns from them. Society is getting into the habit of doing whatever they want without fear of the consequences. Every action causes a chain reaction. This means that whatever one person does can and will affect someone else in some way.

So imagine a world where everyone loses their humanity and begins to act like heartless beings kind of like it is now but worse. Every bad thing everyone did would affect everyone in a negative way thus, creating a negative, miserable, world. Now imagine a world where everyone cared and respected one another. Every kind thing done would affect someone else causing a positive and happy world. Now which world would you rather live in or raise your children in? If people would just stop and think about the bigger picture in life there would be less crime and negativity. I am well aware that the world will never be perfect and that it is nowhere near perfect right now. However, just the smallest pebble can make a reaction across an entire pond. So think before you act, learn from your mistakes, and grow to become the best you, you can be.
