F = failure…

Have you F2016ailed recently?

I have.
F2016ail often and I don’t think that is a bad thing.
The bad thing would be not to try again.
Most success comes out of F2016ailure.
Don’t let the fear of F2016ailure rob you of success.

That’s my post for the letter

    1. People who are successful understand the patience and perseverance that is needed to see past what seems to be failure to what will become success.

  1. I’ve felt a lot like a failure lately. I am trying to learn a new cable knitting pattern and I keep having to rip it and start over. I know I have started this thing over at least 10 times already. I am really surprised that I bothered to try it again after messing up the first time. But, I did. The biggest problem is that I am very forgetful, not remember which stitch I just did. One thing that I’ve learned through this experience is to write each step down right after I do it, this way I can keep up with whether it is time to put the stitches to the front or the back of the piece. I have made it 21 rows on this project now without having to rip it out again. YAYAY! — Here’s hoping I didn’t just jinx myself by rejoicing!

    1. The failure would be to stop knitting. Sounds like you have worked out how to conquer the pattern. One stitch at a time is the way to go.

      1. I’ve worked it out on that pattern, but not so much on another one. I made the mistake of trying another one without writing each step that I took. After having to rip out yet another headband this morning, I was very near to just taking all the knitting needles out to the garbage man. But, I will give it another go. Eventually, it will work out. Eventually, I will remember to just write down absolutely everything. 🙂

  2. I fail to be the person I want to be on almost a daily basis, but the next day I get up determined to try again, and some days I even get it right! 🙂 Failure isn’t fatal, it’s just a learning experience, the only thing that’s fatal is giving up. Great choice for an F-word, Patricia! 🙂

    1. If we were everything and had everything what would that tell us? Maybe that we are taking life for granted and not really living as we are meant to.
