      I love this article! Failure is just an opportunity to learn and become stronger.

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/how-we-succeed-by-failing/2011/10/14/gIQAnDgykL_story.html?utm_term=.02b9e2f7221c

      “A history of human failure would make for a long and interesting read, yet we prefer books about success. We thrill at the end-zone victory dance, applaud the extra point, admire the perfect 10. In literature, what is redemption but recovery from human failing? We love no one more than the man or woman who says I made a mistake, I’m sorry, please forgive me. Forgive? We want to hoist the penitent on our shoulders.”

      This made me think of a quote:

      “Success is not final.
      Failure is not fatal.
      It is the courage to continue that counts.”-Winston Churchill

      Someone wrote this down and gave it to me during a time when I really needed it. It is a reminder that nothing is permanent, except death. Sometimes, my biggest mistakes have brought me to places and people I would never ever replace. It is hard to see or feel that in he midst of chaos and consequences.
