Steverino's big fat stupid failure...

Hello championay...

I'd be lying if I simply wrote one big fat stupid failure, but the list is a bit longer...
 

  1. I failed to make Quest (the smart kids club back in the 6th grade)...
  2. I failed to make the 8th grade basketball team...
  3. I failed to ask my Jr High crush out...
  4. I failed to really apply myself in High School...
  5. I failed to go the extra mile at Uni...
  6. I failed to join the Marines with my two buddies who went off to war...
  7. I failed to be a better brother...
  8. I failed to be a more faithful son...
  9. I failed to put myself first in a dozen or so relationships...
  10. I failed to quit a job I hated earlier...
  11. I failed to take a bigger risk when it came to choosing a college...
  12. I failed to land a high-paying job right out of Uni...
  13. I failed to be completely honest with myself about my inner demons...
  14. I failed to be a good friend to my mate Alex...
  15. I failed to be a better partner and husband to my wife Meg...
  16. I failed to be fully present in past jobs giving into daydreams and putting it on cruise control...
  17. I failed to start writing sooner...
  18. I failed to give more than I took for so many years...
  19. I failed to launch out in my own business sooner...
  20. And, about a thousand other ways...

I've failed a lot in life, but you know what?

I'm not a failure.

And, neither are you.

It's how we learn...

Grow...

Become better...

Wiser...

And, stronger.

So the next time you fall down remember:

Failure doesn't define you, it refines you.

Just something to think about today.

Here's to picking yourself up again...
