Albert Einstein once said, “Anyone who never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” As life graces us with new experiences again and again, we might find ourselves in a constant of loop of wishing we could’ve done better. But just as Albert Einstein suggests, mistakes are part of the process! Today’s collection of stories features characters trying to improve.
