Failure is an Event, Not a Person

You are not a failure, even if you have failed to meet a specific goal.

This is in line with: A child is not bad if they do something wrong. The act they did may be bad or wrong, but the child is still good.

As adults, we can be very hard on ourselves. But it’s important to remember that we are our own parents, so to speak, and we need to treat ourselves with the same kindness and understanding that we give others.

If we don’t give ourselves permission to fail, then we limit our efforts to activities we know we can do. And that is stifling.

Remember that failure is an event, not a person.” Zig Ziglar

About Faye Lynn

Barefoot and Breathless is a contemporary romance, chick-lit, women's fiction novel about a single mother looking for love, dealing with her son's growing independence, overcoming a past abusive relationship, trying to stay true to her morals, and teaching in a public at-risk school. It's a light, fun read with a writing style of Rachel Gibson meets Janet Evanovich. Like the heroine in Barefoot and Breathless, I'm a teacher, yogi, and single mother. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and I look forward to reading your comments. Carpe Diem, Faye Lynn
