Flying in the face of failure

Have you ever failed? Does that stop you from ever wanting to try something again? Are you hibernating? I will admit that there is one area of my life that I have failed miserably over and over again and I am not sure that I will ever try again. However, in most areas I am willing to accept the challenge and if all else fails turn it into a good journal entry.

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Mary Pickford
Do not allow yourself to stay down. Do not allow yourself to think much too much about what happened. Get up and make another attempt. You know, I just might take my own advice on that one day.
