When Failure Seems too Common

This week has been a doozy. With every turn I've made, it seems as if failure has welcomed me each time. Talk about wearing ya down.

But hey! Failure will only get you down if you allow it to!
Why not bite it back and fight for your place? Yepper! Fight back!

This week I have ruined meals, projects, lost sleep (LOT'S!!!), forgotten things, and have given up terribly. Instead of telling myself how lousy I am, I've picked up all the pieces to the life-puzzle I'm working on and continue on my journey. That's what it's about anyways.

If you could look at my husband, you'd see a smile on his face instead of the high blood pressure he might have at the moment. Let's just say, the meals that I've ruined this week are all thanks to salt or season overload. Yeah...I was not in the moment this week and that's ok. He's recovering and I made up for it with a simple pot roast last night...leaving out the side of salt. He understood. We all have moments where we're just. not. there.

But in all honesty... sometimes it's extremely difficult to pick up the pieces when failure becomes more common than success. And I can vouch for that. My first year with my girls I had more failures than I ever imagined and the feeling that I wasn't suited for my job overwhlemed me. But I pressed forward. And that is what we have to do. We have to keep going. Keep reaching.


Things will never be perfect. Good, yes. Perfect...not so much.
We have to keep in mind that a failure only allows us to see the path to success more clearly.
It gives us the opportunity for another attempt and the possibility to succeed.
It's all up to you if you choose to try, try, try again.

I chose to try.
