We all face failure. We may fail an exam, we may fail to do the dishes, or we may fail to be a good friend. Although failure isn’t fun, it is an important part of life. Failure teaches us a necessary lesson, a lesson that must be experienced to fully understand. I am consistently telling myself, that when I face failure, that I cannot let it overtake me. I cannot let it defeat me. My reaction to failure is crucial. My husband has taught me a lot in our few years of marriage, and one major concept that I still struggle with, is my attitude. I can choose my attitude in any given situation, and when it comes to failure I often find myself soaking in defeat, dwelling on the negative. I am challenging myself to think positively and not let my failures define my quality of life, but let them shape me into a better individual. An individual who is ready to learn, laugh and love.
Philippians 2:14-15 says, “Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,”
