Dear Failure,

I owe you an apology. There was a time in my life when I didn’t appreciate your value. I thought that you were the enemy, and your only purpose was to wound, mock, and embarrass me.

You were a convenient excuse to doubt myself and my abilities.

Now I realize that you are a necessary part of my personal growth and development. You are not the enemy. You are an ally.

Your presence in my life is an indicator that I am taking action.

You are a wise teacher. Your lessons will continue to mold me into the person I am striving to become – the best version of me.

Gratefully yours,
Lee
