Life is tough. So we need to believe in something bigger; believe in something better to keep us going. But because we fear failure, we sometimes choose the road of doing nothing.
The thing about failure is that it isn’t permanent. It’s a bruise and not a tattoo. Even when we didn’t achieve what we wanted to, we still achieved something: a lesson. Being open to those life lessons is the best teacher you will ever have.
“Maybe life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it.”
I’m not saying it will be easy. I’m saying we must be fearless when it comes to life and careless to what other people might think of our choices. And it’s okay to be scared! Being scared means you’re giving yourself the opportunity to do something brave by being alive and not just living a life.
