Best Mistake


“There’s no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase but we hold on ” – Ariana Grande

In my adulthood I’ve begun believing that there are no such things as mistakes, just life lessons. If mistakes did exist, I can admit that nearly 20 years ago I made the best mistake of my life. It’s only been since recently that I’ve come to that revelation. From the moment I made that mistake to now I realize that I needed to go through some life experiences. I needed to find what I thought was love in order to recognize the possibilities of what could be true and real love.

I don’t know everything about love. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I know what it’s like to know real unconditional love. I thank God for using my beautiful son as a beacon of real love and light. Other forms of love have also contributed to my recent realization of true love. The way my best friends display their love towards me and especially towards my son are huge indications of unconditional love. Love shown from immediate family members are obvious forms of unconditional and real love. But the one love that escapes many of us is that one true love from a soulmate.

Soulmates come in the form of friends, family and even pets. Finding that specific true love with someone special is quite a feat in and of itself. After a tough break up and even a divorce, the comeback is tough. Many people have shared their break up and even make up stories with me. What I’ve taken away from each of those stories is that there’s hope in the aftermath of an ugly break up. It’s never an easier road to go down, but it’s all worth it in the end because they’ve become more appreciative of their newfound love the second time around. Everyone deserves a second chance because you don’t know true love until you’ve loved the wrong person.

In what ways has a breakup helped you become a better person? How has that breakup taught you to love better and stronger?

Until next post,

Best Mistake as performed by Ariana Grande ft. Big Sean

How soon do we forget how we felt?
Dealing with emotions that never left
Playing with the hand that we were dealt in this game…

Maybe I’m the sinner, and you’re the saint
Gotta stop pretending what we ain’t
Why we pointing fingers, anyway?
When we’re the same

Break up
Make up
Total waste of time
Can we please make up our minds
And stop acting like we’re blind?

‘Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining
Stars fall, and the world goes blind, boy
You know, I’ll be savin’ my love for you, for you

‘Cause you’re the best mistake I’ve ever made
But we hold on, hold on
There’s no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
But we hold on, hold on

I guess time’s wasting, tick tocking, lip locking
How can we keep the feelings fresh? How do we zip lock it?
Wear your heart up on your sleeves so watch out for pickpockets
I guess to go the distance we might need to pit stop it
Hold up, I know love could be a beach with no shore
I done count to ten, lost my temper, and went back to four
I know sometimes it’s hard to realize I’m the man that you need
I had a dream we branched out started a family tree
And I feel like that everything we do is overdue
You ask why I love your mom so much ’cause she’s a older you
I wish that you were happy I guess that’s the one thing I should be providing
Ain’t no number twos, we both ones of ones and we the oddest
Couple only humans ‘cept you, you a goddess
Only lying to you when I lie you down, just being honest
When you start as friends it’s hard to say you’re never going back
If I’m not the one then I’m the best mistake you ever had

Break up
Make up
Total waste of time
Can we please make up our minds
And stop acting like we’re blind?

‘Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining
Stars fall, and the world goes blind, boy
You know, I’ll be savin’ my love for you, for you

‘Cause you’re the best mistake I’ve ever made
But we hold on, hold on
There’s no pot of gold in the rainbows we chase
But we hold on, hold on

You’re, you’re, you’re, you’re…
Mmm, I’ll be savin’ my love for you, for you
You’re, you’re, you’re, you’re…
Mmm, I’ll be savin’ my love for you, for you

    “I needed to find what I thought was love in order to recognize the possibilities of what could be true and real love” So very true. A poet named Ranier Rilke said “Young people cannot know love yet, they must first learn it with all their fearful beating hearts. They must learn to love.” It takes maturity to learn what love is. From my experience, it took to learning what love is not to learn the beauty of what true love is. It’s the highest of all virtues. As for soul mates, I agree. A soul mate doesn’t have to come as a partner, but also in friendship.

      Love is both, simultaneously, simple and complex. The person who you’re meant to be with should be like the ebb and flow of the ocean against the beach shores; adjusting with ease. I usually don’t re-read my posts after they’re published but this specific post I re-read as a reminder to myself that I’m where I’m at because I’m meant to be here going through what I’m going through.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach.

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos.

💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
