2008 is a year marked by word FAILURE (yes, in capital letters) Though I'm not religious at all, I wanted to share the underneath prayer with you, because it reflects on me and my feeling of failure in real life and I had forgotten those words until I read them again and realised there was a simple truth in there.... So, I'm going to leave 2008 and all it's failures behind me AND in 2009 I'm going to:
To fail does not mean I’m a failure
It means that I have not yet succeeded at something!
To fail does not mean I have not accomplished anything
It means that I learned something.
To fail does not mean I’m stupid
It means that I had enough faith in myself to at least give it a try.
To fail does not mean that I made a fool of myself
It means that I dared to go for an adventure
To fail does not mean I don’t have it in me
It means that I have to try in other way.
To fail does not mean I’m less than others
It means that I’m not perfect
To fail does not mean I have wasted my life
It means that I have a reason to start again.
To fail does not mean I’d better give up
It means that I should have more patience
To fail does not mean that you have abandoned me, God
It means that God probably has a better plan for me.
So have a happy new year and I'm leaving you with these immortal words Warren said to Kitty and that are still true.
We don’t love the people we love, because they are perfect, we love the people we love, because they are.
