FAILING GRACEFULLY

into_the_forest_by_chriscold-d6ew0fiWe all fail at something, weather it’s in a job, relationship, communication,a project, failure to see the  hidden meaning in the way of a sign or a symbol that is put before us for interpretation , so that the art of failing gracefully allows us to embrace the unknown . .

Hind sight is always easy when reflecting on a situation gone wrong.  Mis interpretation is often the main factor in poor decision making.

The hardest part of feeling failure is the possibility that your disappearance can so easily be discarded.  Here today, gone tomorrow.  This is when the true test of self love applies.

All the enlightened reading cannot actually do the work for you, so to measure the experience is a mere reflection of your thoughts about it.

Anger, disappointment,  regret, blame, the need to clarify, none of which will alter the fact that the event which created the need for change can be corrected.

So what are we left with, a choice to move forward inspite of our regrets which translate into failure? or take a moment to reflect on what’s truly important to you in your inner most sacred place, and then thank the forces that created the circumstances to force us to reflect on the conflict between our inner world and our outer world.

Our journey and the paths we take are sometimes driven by principal rather than our true happiness.  Happiness is a state of being that overrides all the wasted time when making a decision that was not true to who we are.

We all have our individual journey though life.  The key is to realize we cannot walk this path alone, it’s just that sometimes we must share the path with someone not of our choosing, but then where is the lesson in that.

Our paths can prove confusing and interferred with by so much noise and clutter, our state of confusion enhanced by the overgrown foliage can camouflage the way causing it to be hidden from our sight.

Sometimes the answer is in plain sight but do to its simplicity can be overlooked and we then find ourselves on a beaten path only to be repeated til we get it.

Just as we are all individual so too is our journey through life.  The key to finding the path less traveled is to come out of exile and join the living through embracing the unknown..
