What to Do With Failure

Failure. Just reading that word used to make me cringe. The key words are ‘used to.’

Failure is still not my favorite thing but it has become a friend to me. Why? Because I can learn so much from failure.

At the beginning of the year, I set goals and felt very optimistic about them. And then life happened. I realized I needed to let go of some goals and make some changes to the ones I kept.

Life Happened

Once April hit, I realized I couldn’t keep up with the plan I had started the year with. I joined EBA (Elite Blogging Academy) and started putting more time into working through this course. Decisions needed to be made and I had to let go.

Letting Go

Several of my goals were great ones to help me grow but the time and energy to work on all the goals just weren’t available. Below, I have listed the ones I gave up. I have been tempted to feel like a failure many times because I couldn’t focus on all of the goals. The truth is I have failed, but I am not a failure.

 

Myself Goals

Read 10-12 books related to personal growth

Be able to speak from memory 40 verses by the end of the year

Scrapbook for 30 minutes once a week

Be able to recite the books of the Bible in order by the end of the year

 

Marriage Goals

Follow a weekly plan to intentionally speak Jonathan’s primary love language

 

Motherhood Goals

Pray for kids daily using their verse

 

My Community

Write one handwritten encouraging note a week

Changes

In Friday’s blog post, I will share an update on the goals that I kept or changed around. Change is hard but necessary. Even though I failed at meeting some of my original goals, it doesn’t mean I wasn’t successful. In fact, failing helps me to be more successful.

Failure. It will happen. But you don’t have to let it pull you down. The next time you fail at something, I encourage you to see what you can learn from it. Pick yourself back up and move forward. Please comment below and share one way you have learned from failure.
