YOU ARE A FAILURE! How many people cringe when they hear that? I have lived my entire life afraid of failure. Failure in marriage, failure as a mom, failure as a friend, failure as an employee, and failure as a leader. Sometimes we are paralyzed with fear of failure. But what if failure was not negatively viewed? What if failure means you tired something new?
I recently failed at doing something I am very passionate about. I am a foster mom for dogs who have been neglected, abused, or spent their lives in a shelter. CHARLEE is my current foster. I have had her for almost 3 weeks. She came to me so scared and frightened of EVERYTHING including me. I poured every once of love I have into her to show her life is wonderful and full of love.
Today is national dog adoption day and I have FAILED. When you foster a dog and decide you love the dog and want to keep it…it is called FOSTER FAIL!! WHAT? There is that word failure again, the one I have worked at so hard to stay away from.
My failure has given Charlee and myself a life of unconditional love. So, let us change how we view failure, failure means you tried, and your failure can change lives.
WHAT CAN YOU TRY NEW TODAY?
