Food For Thought #24

In which I talk about failure.

Well, first off I apologize, usually I try to make sure my posts go up early, but today I got a little late. Sorry about that. It just took me until now to make up my mind what I wanted to post about.  

We've all failed at something in our lives, it's a fact of life. 

For me pursonally I have failures every day. Mainly in one part of my life; my self control. I end up saying and doing a lot of things I regret right after I do them, and the only thing I can do about them then is apologize. 
Failure can get you down and its not easy to admit. But let me tell you something, once you know you've failed, admit it to God, let him work it out with you instead of getting upset about it. It feels so much better then trying to deal with it on your own.

Below is my favorite quote about failing:

And here is a poem I wrote back in January about failing. I hope you enjoy this.
My heart has quite an ache
I’ve made another mistake 
It not a big one 
It’s not like I pulled a gun 
But one of my friends is offended 
For a fear I never mended 
It seems most of my problems are caused by fear 
And the images it, in your brain, does sear 
I keep making these stupid little errors 
And it gets flung back at me like I’m looking in a dozen mirrors
I want to break down crying at my faults
And the whisper telling me that I’m wrong never halts
I will rise victorious  
But it won’t be very glorious 
Because unlike book a character
I have little irritations as a factor 
But today I will smile 
And will go that extra mile 
Because when all is said and done 
It will change someone
