Failing forward

iArtDaily Challenge Day 14

“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” ~ Michael Jordan

Tonight I walked by this vision board, which it turns out I created four years ago (I checked with friends). I was thinking I ought to take it down.

It hangs on my office door in the hallway leading to and from the main entry door I use. I’m afraid it’s become part of the furniture rather than a guidepost. I don’t pay attention to it.

Or do I? I looked more closely. I see areas where I’ve missed the mark and gone backward, but more areas where I am stepping forward into my work. “Be the voice,” “Fierce with age,” and “Spiritual traveler.”

This ability to shift to noticing what’s right rather than what’s wrong is something I’m building day by day through this #iartdaily challenge. I still have a long way to go, but it’s happening!

And so the vision board stays.
