Failure's not flattering
This makes me think of how I always say live with no regrets. We are human and we will mess up and we will sometimes make choices that we look back on and we wonder what the hell was wrong with us. But you can't change those things so why waste precious time worrying about it. You have only failed if you do not learn anything from it. Treat it all as a learning curve and sometimes the lesson is a litlte harder than others but learn something from it all the same, then no opportunity that you have taken will be a wasted opportunity. Some things don't make sense straight away - but just let it be. As I say we all make mistakes - it's what you do about it that determines whether you have failed or not. And don't they say it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. You could live a very safe life where you won't get hurt but your life will be as dull as dishwater. So take a gamble and give something a go - if it doesn't work out the way you hoped you might find it works out even better - or at least it's better to have tried a something and not have had it go the way you wished than to never try and regret that for the rest of you life! Think about when you are old - wouldn't it be better to talk about the times you messed up where you can laugh about it and tell your grandchildren all the tales of the things you did or you could sit there regretting all the missed opportunities. Life is for living - so you really should live it....and live it with no regrets!
