Mindful Monday: We were all Beginners

I don’t remember when or how I started walking. Yet everyone uses the analogy of when we learnt to walk, that our parents told us that we fell down and got up countless times.

That’s all well and good, but this feedback is coming from someone else. I don’t remember this, yet I know that it happened.

We are all beginners at different stages of our lifetime.

Think back to when you started your very first job.

My first job, was in a pie shop, down the road from where I lived (yes, it’s still there, same name, different owners). I remember feeling like a fraud, I was nervous but also excited. I was entering into a new and unfamiliar environment, and of course, I wanted to make a good impression.

I can not tell you how many mistakes that I have made in my life. What I do know is that for every mistake I have made, I learnt something from it.

You can not be a fraud when you are starting something new.

So take those feelings of excitement, nervousness and uncertainty and embrace them. You can only blossom from here.

It’s easy to forget that we are all beginners and that we will try and fail many times before we become an expert.

Everyone starts somewhere. Just take things one day at a time, remember, little by little a little becomes a lot.
