“Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
This is a great line from L.M. Montgomery's classic novel 'Anne of Green Gables.' Anne's line comes after she made a layer cake for tea with the new minister and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Allan. However, Anne accidentally put in anodyne liniment in the cake instead of vanilla, which makes the cake taste terrible. She is extremely upset and runs away to her room, crying. After a chat with Mrs. Allan, though, who cheered her up after saying she appreciated the thoughtfulness, Anne rejoined the group and later, said that to her guardian, Marilla.
Anne's thought about tomorrow not having any mistakes yet is a positive outlook we should learn to embrace more. We all have good days and we all have bad days. Sometimes we do everything right and sometimes we don't.
The point is that everybody makes mistakes.
