Life can get extremely discouraging.
Sometimes no matter what you are doing things don’t seem to go your way.
Especially after a tragedy, no matter how minor, can send your thoughts cascading into the abyss where it’s so hard to crawl out of.
And once your thoughts turn dark then the light parts of your life also start to slip into the abyss.
I know all these things from personal experience. Withdrawing from school for my health, losing my job because I’m no longer a student, and I can feel other parts of my life failing as I sit and feel sorry for myself.
This is not the answer. I know that I control my reality. Everything going on is a product of a thought I had in the past. Whether intentional or not. That is my belief. And I have personal truth in that statement.
Because I control my reality I know I will recover quickly from this mishap. This is not my life.
But anyway this post is about failing forward!! Because a failure is never truly a failure if you learn from it. Take power from your failure, even if it’s something simple. If you made a mistake you learned how not to do that thing.
If you hurt someone, you learned that your actions effect the people around you.
If you hurt yourself, you learned more about your own limits. Failing is not a bad thing. It may cost you a little extra time to learn a lesson the hard way. But you will get passed it!!
Don’t lose yourself in a failure, build yourself up from the lessons you’ve learned from it.
