We don’t like to fail.

It feels rotten, embarrassing, shameful.

Yet, fail we do.

We all make mistakes.

Some worse than others.

Some more obvious than others.

But what if failure wasn’t failure?

What if, when we made a mistake, we learned from the experience?

What if, when we offended someone, we we able to restore the relationships, making it stronger than before?

What if, after being knocked down, we got up again, tougher, braver and more resilient?

What if we lived life, not trying to avoid failure but understanding that if we live, we inevitably err?

Failure doesn’t have to be failure.

Not if we react to it in the right way.
