Blessing of Failures
Wednesday, October 07, 2020
I am reading a book on stress free living. I am on the chapter of acceptance. One line stood out to me last night. It was along the lines of, "failures are blessings". While walking my dog this morning I thought about it. How true it is. With our failures, we tend to learn and become a better person. Some of us have more failures than others. Would I know how strong I am or things I am capable of without the failure of my marriage? I highly doubt it. That was a big failure. Some are small like burning the supper. I learned I cannot multitask that much or have the food at that high of a temp. Failure also helps me accept things in my life. Life and people are not perfect. Face it, life would be boring if we were perfect. Let the failures happen and help me remember they are blessing (even if it doesn't seem to be at the moment).
You will often hear my say the following when myself or someone else goofs up, "Congratulations, you are human!"
Wishing you a wonderful day.
