Failure is just the beginning…..success is the result
Well, I did it! I officially launched my blog outside of my close family and friends and let me tell you, it was TERRIFYING! I have been working on getting this blog “show ready” for weeks now and I’ve been so excited to share my story and my insight that I never thought I would be so anxious about it. I just put out a very private part of my life for the world to judge, critique and ridicule.
It’s no secret that I was overweight and unhealthy, so that is not where my concern lies. It lies in the fact that I’ve not told people the size of my jeans and the fact that I let myself go so far overboard that I had to be pulled back to reality by my doctor. I’ve not shared with people the feelings I have had through my journey, until now. And now just a couple days later, I feel incredible about it!
I’m finally accepting my failures as opportunities for success. Let’s face it, none of us are perfect. In the past I have had a really hard time forgiving myself for mistakes that I’ve made. I am my own biggest critic. I’ve spent my life so concerned about my failures that I missed so many chances to turn them into success. This experience has been full of failed attempts and bad choices, but now I’m turning them into one big success story.
Stop worrying about what others think of you, stop beating yourself up over mistakes, and stop living in the gutter! Take this opportunity, pull yourself together and make a better life for yourself and for your family. Take the risk of failing, because none of us get where we want without it. You only have one chance at this life, make sure that you’re living it the way you REALLY want to.
“Success is sometimes the outcome of a whole string of failures” ~Vincent Van Gogh
