“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”
I’m not the sort of person who wishes failure upon someone, but I do now. But with good reason. J.K. Rowling knows what I am talking about.
I hope you have the ability to live without a debilitating sense of caution that holds you back from that word that has been made nasty by people motivated by only thoughts of success. I hope you fail a bit, fall down, and learn to get back up. Because you can. I’ve done a lot better with a few new scratches and bruises, a lot of sloppily made decisions, and plans that have fallen through. In fact, I’d rather have tons of scratches on me than to go about my day fearing I might shatter like porcelain.
Because that’s where the magic is.
