The Worst Mistake by WRDBNR The Worst Mistake by WRDBNR
This one is about making mistakes, duh. I don't know about you guys, but I was raised in belief that making mistakes is pretty much the worst thing you can do, and should be avoided at all costs. It took me a lifetime to understand that "the worst mistake is to not make any"...Mistakes are the best thing that can happen in life, so don't be afraid to make them.

Layers of paper with different typefaces represent attempts, each scraped off in a symbol of a mistake. So the piece consists of mistakes, creating one whole.

As always, you can get it on a tee at this [link] or you can makeyourowordboner.com using this design if you're feeling creative.

This composition is amazing. Especially once you realize that the piece (the whole) wouldn't exist if those mistakes weren't made. Absolutely brilliant!

It's still so scary to make mistakes. I'm trying not to, though.

Again, I wish that earlier in my life I took more risks. I stayed in own little comfort zone for the longest time. This really speaks to me.

Hi, I just saw this and I thought it sounded very familiar to my DA personal quote which says "The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one."

I agree with your statement above and mistakes are like trials they're good cause you learn lots from them but then again it totally depends on if a person is willing to learn from the mistakes or not.
