    Just Keep Trying

    It is all to easy to fall into the trap of seeing my life as an endless list of failures (even some of the “wins”  sometimes feel like failures to me.)  But that’s just the old devil Depression whispering in my ear, and I have learned to ignore him, mostly. They still...

    I Am Not Afraid Of Failure

    I'm not afraid of failure.  I was always good at spelling never failed it.   I'm good a cooking too.  However when it comes to math or history I have failed.  Failure isn't life threatening.   There's saying if you don't succeed at first try again.

    I've spent a lifetime failing at things. Sports, the arts, jobs, marriage.  There's a lot I don't know how to do, even more I don't know how to fix.  There are things I fail at, things I'll always fail at, things that I can't win.  But I'll never be complacent. When things don...

    Success More So...

    I think failure is when one doesn't get up and make another attempt. When one gives another attempt I see it as a learning experience and a set back in time. With a set back especially of I didn't give my all, I keep thinking would I have succeeded if I did. The funny...

    Try Again

    I am not afraid to fail at anything cause I can always try again. Dont ever try anything to dangerous though.  Everyone fails sometimes. It is the joy of getting it right after trying so hard.

    Mistaken

    You do your best. You try. You aim for the bullseye, but sometimes you don't hit the bullseye. Sometimes you miss. You make corrections, you correct your DOPE, you adjust the sling,, straighten yourself out. You try again. And then, there are always grenades and you only have to...

    A New Rainbow

    There is no stumbling block on a cobble stoned of life that will make me give up on my dreams. I am not afraid of failure, I am not afraid to look at the sky again. I watch it and with head up all the time, after all. I never know when I may see a rainbow, a swallow crossing the...

    I'm Afraid Of Other Peoples Reactions

    Failure isn't something anyone wants. If you try in the least bit on anything, you like to think you didn't waste any time or effort. Or at least that's how I think. I don't like failing because when I do I get in major trouble. I've never failed a class. I've hardly really...
