After a few lackluster semesters, I’m finally doing something right for a change. I’ve been brought to my knees (from my own doing), but I’m picking myself up and moving forward. This is the first step in the right direction.
I’ve failed on several occasions, with some defeats more devastating than others. All I have to say is be persistent. Never let failure get you down, but rather, embrace it and soak it all in. Failure may not be what you want, but sometimes it’s what you need. Success is a measure of what you are capable of and what you can accomplish. Failure is the realization of what you can do to accomplish even more. Be optimistic and never give up. If you truly want something, you’ll put your heart and soul into it until you have it.
Author’s Note: I’m not satisfied with this post at all. I was struggling with writer’s block, unable to convey the message I wanted in a fluid, cohesive manner. I guess the important thing is that the message is there.
