Thankful For The Failures

There are trials that we get through and then there are times that we flat out fail.

Some of the failures are of our own doing and some are out of our control and just happen.

No matter what circumstances cause you to fail it is always an opportunity to grow, to change and to become better because of it.

If we are able to do that then is it really failure?  No.  We can, check that, WE WILL be better because of it and as we look back we can be thankful for it.

“Failure is never fatal. But failure to change can and might be.”
–John Wooden

Don’t fear failure.  It never has to define you.  How you use it and grow from it is what will define you. 

As we grow and become better we will be thankful as well.
