The Other F Word

We grow up thinking that failure is final;
That it is bad.

But there exists another school of thought;
That failure is freedom.

Failure brings with it a host of opportunities;
To grow, change and explore.

To grow to be people who are not defined by failures;
To be resilient.

To change into the people we always wanted to become;
To be true to ourselves.

To explore avenues we had not yet thought to travel;
To be curious.

When we look at failure from this lens it does not seem as final;
It almost seems good.

When we give ourselves over to the freedom of failing are we really failing;
Or are we simply evolving?

The way we view failure can change the way we choose to live and the direction our lives can take;
If you knew that failure was freeing and not final,

What would you attempt?
