What does failure look like?…feel like?
Like the shore with the tide receded and just not coming back in.
Like a tree stripped of leaves, branches twisted over into loops.
For failure can be a cycle, a seemingly endless loop.
And when you are in that loop, you feel so, so, stuck.
The harder you try, the worse it all seems to get.
The loop becomes a tightening noose.
All you do is hope and pray for anything that will act as a circuit breaker.
And when you find it, or the universe brings the tide back in, that will be success.
Remember then what failure looks and feels like, and appreciate that success.
Because you can’t truly know success without having experienced failure.
