Think On These Things

There are going to be failures. It’s too hard for there not to be. Get a grip and start over if you have to.

Ben Davis



You really should click and go read the whole thing.  And I'd like to add, most of all, forgive yourself no matter what.

  3. I'll need to check that out again - its been a while since I've watched the video - he is so inspirational!

    I think too often we, as a society, want instant gratification. Sometimes you just have to step back, make the best decisions you can TODAY, and hopefully be successful - its the big picture that we sometimes lose sight of.

    Hope that makes sense to you?! Happy Friday!

  5. Most of us can forgive others much easier than ourselves...but you're right - until we turn that forgiveness onto ourselves, we are (mostly) spinning our wheels.
