I’ve been working on a poetry project centered around hope. I have a poem I’ve written, and I’m creating pictures to accompany some of the verses. This particular verse is about failure.
I’ve never been put off by failure. Sound crazy? I don’t love it. No one does. But I’m also a believer that when you’re told “no” or just flat out fail, it’s God nudging you back to the right path. So even when I’m disappointed, I think, okay… what now? I do a lot of reflecting. I think a lot… probably too much… but it helps me put things in perspective.
Failure doesn’t necessarily mean you try again harder. It means you might decide on a completely different path, a new direction, not because you’ve given up but because when you failed you got insight that inspired you in a new way.
Here’s to hope!
