Though fallen, their beauty was unmatched...
It's time to challenge the perception of failure. When we experience failure, we often say things like "I'm stupid," "I never get it right," "I'm ugly" etc.
We can agree that failing doesn't feel the best. However, it is within our short-comings that we often learn the most. When in the midst of failure, acknowledge it and know it won't last forever (even when it feels the opposite, ask for guidance, and take one small step at a time. With each step, embrace the empowerment and beauty of moving beyond.
Without failure, we wouldn't be able to set our sights on improvement or growth. If we didn't experience failure, we would be denied the gratitude we feel when we overcome.
