failure is not failure its life moving us into another direction
I saw oprah's commencement speech of 2013 to harvard & loved it. I totally agree with her words of wisdom about what one considers failure in life, änd I quote her "There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. Now, when you’re down there in the hole, it looks like failure. … Give yourself time to mourn what you think you may have lost, but then here’s the key: Learn from every mistake because every experience, encounter and particularly your mistakes are there to teach you and force you into being more who you are. And then figure out what is the next right move. And the key to life is to develop an internal moral, emotional GPS that can tell you which way to go". I know this is true for my life, after my stroke I felt like failure & did not think I have any purpose of being alive, but I am thankful that after mourning my losses I found new meaningful direction to my life, so her line talks very personally to me. I enjoy watching commencement speeches. they are always very inspiring & funny. thought would share my new interest.
