"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again. This time more intelligently."
You failed. It failed. You messed up. Again. Beloved, growing from wounds to wisdom requires that you refuse to let mistakes, defeat and failure become commentary on your worthiness. I have accepted this as fact: "whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you’ve been through, it’s never too late to begin again" and you should accept this too!
Application: FRESH START
1. Refuse to speak from agony. Change your perception today. Right now. Stop your mind and mouth from anticipating the future. In the depths of defeat we anticipate that tomorrow will be like today and so will the next. Stop that loop of negativity right at it's source. Accept this, problems are never permanent. All situations change. It's up to you if the change is better or bitter. CHOOSE to begin yet again.
2. Create a new relationship with your failings. I've heard it said that a failure is simply a success I don't like. Shine light in your darkness of pain. Refuse to let hurt freeze you in your tracks. Quit groping for answers about why this or that happened. Refuse disappointment because life hasn’tturned out how you planned, and something didn't go as you expected. Acceptance is powerful . Acceptance alone releases you from being lost and unsure, in a cloud of loneliness, fear, boredom, uncertainty, worry, or despair. Right now, give yourself permission to begin again...decide what happened to you is merely the tuition paid for the lessons learned that will make you better and stronger than ever before.
Beloved, I am praying with and for you.
