Friday Frills



Failure doesn’t mean you’re a failure,

It means you haven’t succeeded yet. 

Failure doesn’t mean you haven’t accomplished something,
 
It does mean you have learned something. 

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been a fool, 

It means you have a lot of faith. 

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve been disgraced,

It does mean you were willing to try. 

Failure doesn’t mean you don’t have it,

It means you have to do something in a different way. 

Failure doesn’t mean you’re inferior,

It does mean you’re not perfect. 

Failure doesn’t mean you’ve wasted your time,

It means you have a reason to start fresh. 

Failure doesn’t mean you should give up,

It does mean you should try harder. 

Failure doesn’t mean you’ll never make it,

It does mean it will take a little longer. 

Failure doesn’t mean God has abandoned you,

It does mean he has a better way.

Amazing and uplifting words!
Thank you for sharing this, God never abandon us, He just have better plans than we do for ourselves.
I feel a bit nervous when I learnt I was the finale to the show but then I met the crew and it was totally mind blowing and I really want to have that experience again.
Have a wonderful weekend love.

This is a great one!!! Love those words!!! =]

Zahra Sandberg said...

Very true and inspirational post! I agree completely - and I feel like if everyone just realized this, we would be a lot more content with ourselves and our achievements! Too often we don't feel successful unless someone else acknowledges that talent - but really most of the time that will only happen after we perservere and believe in ourselves anyway.

Hope that makes sense! Great post.

I really love this Sam, it reminds me of one of my fav sayings: a denial doesn't mean no it just means there's something even better in store. It's something along those lines anyway!

Have a great weekend

Sam, this is so beautiful and inspiring! I think many of us were programmed to think that failure is something bad, something that we should avoid at any cost. But I think that the best life lessons come out of failure: that's when we learn valuable lessons about ourselves, our capacities, and about people around us. Thank you for making my Friday morning better!

Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!

Exactly, failure isn't always bad! We can always learn something from failure xxx

Natalia A said...

Very true! I don't even like this word, to be honest. I just say that if something didn't happen the way we wanted it simply means it wasn't the right time or place. :)
Have a wonderful weekend, Sam! x

Lilli said...

Morning my dear! So glad today you are talking about "failure", your speech is really wise and I think I always have to keep it in my mind! In life happens so many time to fail, for me the reason is cause the thing we are pursuing isnt good for us and there is other in store. We have to put all the strenght and positive attitudes in everything we make and desire, in the better of cases we can succeeed, if not is ok the same, we have make experience and for sure learnt something new, in my opinion a lesson gained avoid to be disappointed and make ourself wiser! Never give up:)) Happy Friday Sam, thanks a lot for dropping in! Hugs! xo

I love this post!! Such honest and inspiring words. Especially that last line. So many times I've tried to do things my way instead of God's way and then the minute I let go and let God take the lead it all falls together. God is so good! And I thank God for our amazing community of blogging woman who are so supportive and gorgeous inside and out! Sam, you are such a kind, classy, strong woman!
