Have The Courage To Fail In Order To Succeed

It was my birthday yesterday, and like clockwork, my parents always present me with a card every year, but this year’s card took me by surprise. Every child wants to make their parents proud one day by accomplishing something, an end goal, get that corner office, have their work published, have a big title, etc. But to read that it’s not what I’ve achieved, or rather lack thereof since I’m still just starting out on my career that makes my parents proud, but rather by having resilience in the PROCESS even in spite of failures and drawbacks gives me courage to continue. We focus so much on the end result that sometimes we forget it’s the middle road that shows the true character of a person. We never stop to think that our stumbles can be pride-worthy, but to our parents eyes they are. Thank you Mom and Dad for being the supportive parents you have been for the last 24 years and for allowing me to pursue my dreams against a status quo and for believing that driving to be happy regardless of anything or anyone else in life is enough.
