Dust Yourself Off Again

We try and we fail.  This is our constant sorrow, our never ending struggle, no matter where we are at in our progress or what we happen to be doing.  There is effort and yet over and over again, there is failure.  The longing to at last succeed is what unnerves us but it is also what drives us.  And this is how we are able to grow, ceaselessly and undaunted by the challenges in our lives.  In this way, meaning can be found in our mistakes.  In this way, we learn to love the process rather than cling to a desired outcome.  Because not everything worth doing is always done right.

  1. Are you kidding, thank you for reading and relating! That alone is inspiring (I’m not the only one out there trying, but not always getting things quite right)! I think sometimes we forget that success is born out of failure. This is where the story of ‘The Little Engine That Could’ comes into play: “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…” : )
