After an event that feels like a failure, there are still many lessons to consider. Success isn’t obvious in our mind, but with a different perspective, the many values get uncovered. They’re all lessons meant for our person and they’re intended to help us grow. Answers aren’t always immediate, but with continuous practice, the purpose is eventually realized.

I have often asked, “Where do I want to head?” And, as I consider all my options, I must choose which path would be most beneficial to me. Despite wanting to adopt the path somebody else has taken, I must recall that I’m a different person with different qualities to express.

Mistakes can be accomplishments, an introduction to alternate roads for learning. Accept them as gifts of life and remain open to the meaning it offers. Greatness is surely awaiting every person when they’re willing to explore, determine what they want and strive to understand every gift received.
