Writing Challenge Day 31
For the last day of my writing challenge I want to go against the norm of success. We believe in order to succeed we must not fail. We must start and finish with a win. In order to be considered successful we have to reach a level of popularity and get wealthy along the way.
To be honest, I really let myself down during this challenge. Starting five days late was only the beginning. Now, I’m six days late finishing. My posts were not as long as I would have liked, and you probably picked up more errors than I can count. Towards the end I fell to the ground, giving up when things got tough. Tasting the dirt of failure only led me to believe I could never attempt another writing challenge again.
But during this whole challenge God opened my eyes to a new definition of success. In order to succeed we have to keep going. Failure is success. It takes courage and strength to get back up. To succeed is to never give up, even after the race is over.
No matter how big or small your start is, it matters. We all have goals and most of us are greeted by the norm of failure. Especially while tackling the duties of being a Mom. But what if you decided failing is a part of your success? If we never failed we would never know where our strengths and passions lie. We would never know how to improve, or what we love. We would follow a path of thinking we have it all together. When in reality we are a craft project held up by the glue that always falls apart. In order to stick together against life’s challenges we must put on the extra layer of God. May I challenge you to go against the norms with God? Where do you fit in with the world, and where do you fit in with God?
