I know I am a failure. I know that I have failed. Failed others. Failed myself. I know that I will continue to fail. Fail others. Fail myself. I don’t like to fail. I hate failing. I hate the feeling I get when I fail. I don’t want to fail. I try to avoid failure at all costs. But something has changed recently within my thought process towards failure. There has been a mindset shift. I am learning to embrace failure. I am learning to embrace the opportunity failure provides to learn. To examine. To adjust. To change, and to grow. I am on a path of discovery in regards to the benefit and power within failing. I still don’t want to fail, like to fail, don’t misunderstand me. I still do my best to avoid failing, but, again, I know my failure is inevitable. Failure, my failure, is a part of this life. So, why not gain as much as possible from failure? As opposed to losing from failure? Why not learn, adjust, and grow from failure, as opposed to allowing failure to overwhelm, hinder, and or hold you back? I am thankful for failure. I am thankful for MY failure. I am thankful failure exists. Exists to teach, correct, humble, and help in maturing those who are willing. I am thankful for the beauty found within failure. I am thankful for the opportunity failure provides. I am thankful failure is an integral part within life. I am a failure. I have failed. I will fail. BUT, I am a failure, trying to learn.
