I've been thinking a lot about failure and success lately, mostly just my own. I have decided something. Just because I’ve had failures doesn't make me a failure, and just because I’ve had successes doesn't make me successful. I think that can only be decided by what I am doing today, right now.  Have I allowed my failures to swallow me up and take away my resilience and dreams, making the struggles I have faced be in vain? Or, do I take the alternate route and keep trying, keep building; regardless of circumstances do I find a way to make things happen in my life?  I know I have had moments where I have allowed my failures to defeat me, but I like to think that I never allow those moments to last very long.  I get back up and keep trying, take a different approach. Life is too short to spend most of it dreading that I might disappoint myself. Yeah, it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll make some mistakes, that I’ll probably feel at times that I am making a foul of myself, and yes, people WILL cast harsh judgments.  But none of that matters.  I just need to be okay with myself at the end of the day, I need to know that I have done everything I can to make the life I want to live possible!  So here is to my many failures and how they have helped me get one step closer to my dreams.

For anyone who follows this blog, you know that I am singer who loves music and sharing it with others. This has been a lifelong pursuit for me and I don’t see that changing.  Here is another video that I’d like to dedicate to failure, because without it we would not know the sweetness of success.

If you have had failure in your life but refuse to let it define you or hold you back, take a listen… and share this video with someone who inspires you.

much love
