Failure Stories

Leads to Beautiful Beginnings

By Charlene EllisonPublished 6 years ago 1 min read

I have failed at some things throughout my life and it took me up’s and down’s

I could not hold my head up because I had failed myself once again

Yet every time there was a setback it was directing my path to a greater comeback that was coming around

I look to my friends who I saw climbing the ladder and I was there yet left at a standstill

How will I know when it is my time when something good happens then follows a failure?

Although, I say to myself that no one has gone through life without feeling part of their life was not fulfilled

It is not always bad luck that has our path seeming that we must give up

However, it is something so much greater and beautiful waiting for you to receive

Not everything that happens is trying to keep you down or is corrupt

It is the gift of life they say that keeps on giving and positivity as well as the willpower is what will keep you going

Failure is not the end… It is a lesson to correct our mistakes so that we can cross the finish line

It is the determination that keeps that smile from a frown and sun shining while we’re glowing

Good things come to those who wait yet I say that effort goes a long way

Nothing in life is free. No one owes you anything and failure is not a curse

Just remember tomorrow has passed and today is a new day

Therefore, just because one path is difficult it is not the destination

Those obstacles that were put in your way is leading a path to a beautiful beginning

You have just planted a new start…yes this is your new foundation for a bigger creation

Life… it comes with obstacles and you must be strong and remember why you started

No one knows your passion more than you and your heart

Just believe that anything comes your way you can do it and that failure is one thing needs no attachment, yet it must be departed
