Beautiful mistakes? And your Monday Fortune Cookie, 1/12/14

How can you have a beautiful ending without making beautiful mistakes?

SNARKY RESPONSE: Well if we’re talking orders of magnitude, then, my ending is going to be in 3D, surround-sound, techni-color.

How can you have a beautiful ending without making beautiful mistakes?

And a beautiful mistake is better than a regular mistake how?
Does it hurt less or more?
Is it less disappointing or worse?
Is it more instructive or destructive?

Is it just me or does this sound as if the Fortune Cookie Guru is saying “no pain, no gain” in a long and roundabout way? I can’t decide if I’m impressed by the depth of this fortune or irritated by it’s pompousness.

I guess it’s that ol’ “you appreciate it if you’ve earned it” mentality. If we’ve suffered for our goals, we’ll be grateful. If we sacrifice for our happiness, we’ll value it more. If we haven’t seen the dark, we can’t appreciate the light.

I seriously vote for achieving my beautiful ending without mistakes, beautiful or ugly. I think I’m able to appreciate the positive things that happen to me without having to be clobbered by a boatload of negatives first. What about you?
