Random encouraging thing

This is from a card that I've carried around in my wallet for quite a few years now. It was given to me by a professor in the School of Ed. at BC. She encouraged us as novice teachers to take risks and not be ashamed. I thought about this card a lot while teaching, and it encouraged me, and even though I'm not a teacher (by profession :)) anymore, I think it can be broadly applied and encouraging to all. So here it is:

"I BLEW IT!
I tried something new and innovative and it didn't work as well as I wanted it to. This coupon entitles me to be free of criticism for my efforts. Creativity is something I'll continue to pursue to help my students be successful."
