Have you ever considered what failure truly is? I have been thinking about it a lot lately. Wondering when it is time to give something up and pin on your “F” pin and just walk away…. Pondering what failure really is and what it isn’t.
I am not talking about an epic failing. Just those things that you can’t seem to find a way around them. You keep trying. You continue to throw what ever needed at “it”, but for whatever the reason, nothing seems to happen.
Picture yourself standing holding a rod of spinning plates and in that moment when first one, then two and then all the plates come crashing to the ground.. Is it that moment that failure takes hold? or is it when you don’t grab a new set of plates and continue to spin? W hen is failure.. failure?
I’ve had to ask myself this question on a couple different levels lately. My writing, my weight, my cowgirl dream. I’m curious as to when, for me, the battle to ‘get back” on, is just asking for more disappointment, or if success is just one more attempt around the corner.
I am not sure that I yet have the answers. But, my down time this week, will certainly be spent contemplating what my next steps are, brought to me by the letter “F”.
