Do not fear failure.  Whatever happened in the past is past, do not worry about it happening again.
Before you meet with success, failure is natural and necessary.

I love your post this morning, very apropos for some feelings I am having regarding some serious financial setbacks, or are they? Perhaps, it will be for my growth spiritually, we shall see.

So glad your son is with you, hoping today will be a beautiful day for you.

How wonderful, we have a choice. We have permission to keep on with life, the nature of life, you win some - you loose some. Life is still good.

I think of the header, could be you and I, out for a wonder walk in your woodland of three paths. : )

Thank you, dear one, for sharing!
