The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. – Nelson Mandela
Are you perfect? Do you succeed at everything you attempt? If you do, you probably don’t need to continue reading – but please take a minute and email me your secrets. If you are like me and you don’t succeed every time you try something, and things don’t ALWAYS work out perfectly, read on.
CONGRATULATIONS! You are a HERO to me. Things don’t always work out for people the way they planned, and sometimes things fail – epically. What happens next is what makes you so amazing. You dust yourself off, and try again. You don’t give up, and that is amazing. Be proud of yourself for having the strength and fortitude to soldier on when things aren’t going according to plan.
That’s not to say that sometimes you need to reevaluate and choose another course of action, and there is a certain strength and recognizing that sometimes you have to change your plan completely. There is a certain glory in that as well. To me, that’s not giving up, that’s more taking a look at what is happening and making different choices. Giving up is just that- walking away without any reflection.
Revel in the glory that is you, whether you succeed, keep trying, or choose to travel a different path. Whatever choice you make, you are amazing.
