Learning is a part of life.  Whether it be a new skill, a new job, or something as complex as learning to live with disappointment when something doesn’t go the way you’d hoped, life itself is a learning process.

Take these experiences for what they are-pieces of a tapestry that weave the fabric of your life, as cliched as that sounds.  They are part of you-a part of the word count of your story, if you choose to use that phrase.  Embrace them.
