Sometimes dear readers, you fail, and that’s okay. I made a plan to do some DIY posts this week, and when I did them over the weekend, they were ugly. Did it take me a couple of hours? Yep. Did I waste about £30? *shudders* Yep. Failing is just a fact of life.
When I’ve done job interviews, they sometimes ask what your biggest professional failure has been, and I always struggle to answer. Not because I think I’m perfect, but because typically, I don’t look at life in that way. As corny as it sounds, I see each “failure” as a learning opportunity. You only fail when you give up at something, but if you learn and make adjustments, its more of a process than a failure.
Here’s a little reality for you to make you feel better on a Wednesday:
– Sometimes I do hideous DIY projects that waste money and never make the blog.
– Since my shop has opened, I’ve made only 2 sales. TWO! (Though I’m super pleased about them.)
– Sometimes I walk out of meetings with important people and realise that half of my lipstick is gone and I have a weird ring of colour on my lips. You know, like, all lip liner and no lipstick.
– Sometimes I completely lose my temper before I’m able to catch myself.
– I’m not nearly as tidy as I should be, and I think my husband would agree.
– I stress over things way too much.
– I do/want too many things and don’t focus enough on what I’m already working on.
Sometimes (and frequently) I fail… and that’s OKAY.
