today i choose to learn from my failures
A failure remains a failure only if I refuse to learn from it. Any situation that teaches me greater humility, sobriety, wisdom about self and others, responsibility, forgiveness, depth of reflection, and better decision making - teaching me what's truly important - is not an ultimate failure. Sometimes what I deem a failure at the time it happens actually serves to foster a change within me that creates an even greater success down the road.
Great people are not those who have never fallen down. Great people are those who, when they do fall down, dig deep withing themselves and find the strength to get back up. Today may I be someone who rises from the past.
I feel that I have failed.
I feel that all my efforts have come to naught.
I feel shame at the way my life has turned out.
Please, dear God, repair my heart, heal my mind, and change my life.
Pave a way for me out of darkness into light.
I atone for my errors and I pray for forgiveness.
Please do for me what I cannot do. Thank you, God.
