The other morning I was listening to Jian Ghomeshi interview J.K. Rowling about her new novel “Casual Vacancy” and she said something that struck me, “You have to be free to fail in this life.” She pointed out our creative work should never be an imitation of our previous selves and then we have to be willing to take chances in order to evolve in our work.
I know we are all destined to fall on our face from time to time but sometimes the fall is life’s greatest lesson. We grow and learn from our mistakes which propel us to move forward to take the next chance, work hard, and embrace lady luck.
We have the freedom to move forward and know that there are a world of possibilities.
We all face challenges and obstacles but how we rise above these is the common testament to our strength, will, and creative spirit. So at the start of 2013 I will begin my 365 Day Blog Project and smile knowing that is one small project which may succeed or fail. But that is all up to me!
Do you believe a life well lived is one from learning from our failures?
