Failure is Good

I have been experiencing this for quite sometime now and what i’ve learned was “Once your living a righteous lifestyle all struggles that you encounter are valid and necessary for the needed to growth to reach the Goals we set in life”..

In Flow with Otto


Failure is inevitably linked with art – and life for that matter. Well, it’s also linked to success if you think about it. To put it a little harshly; if we don’t experience failures it’s because we don’t live – or we don’t create, when talking about arts. And if we don’t dare to make failure we will never succeed, either.

Life and art is about jumping from an airplane without knowing how a parachute really works, but hoping it will. It’s about taking chances, knowing that often they won’t lead to anything – or at «worst» to failure. I use brackets because failures aren’t necessarily bad. On the contrary; you can use them as stepping stones to learn more, to become better next time, to evolve, to grow.

The Strong Female Character: I Do Not Think That Means What Some People Think It Means



I recently started watching the new TV series Outlander, based on the popular books by Diana Gabaldon. I have never read the books. The series sounded like something I might enjoy, about a woman who time-travels to 18th Century Scotland.

I see people raving about the show on Twitter and other social media. Like Charlie Brown, I don’t know how to argue with success. Something is resonating with many viewers, and I don’t mind that they are enjoying it.

But to me it’s a major disappointment. It made me think of how the term “strong female character” is so often misconstrued.

Deep Thinkers are usually looked at as weird strange or insecure but i beg to differ because as i look into the mirror at my reflection i see more than just an image of myself i see pain i see love i see struggle i see success and i also see a life that was created from the choices I’ve made i also see strength derived from the choices I’ve made. Life is not always fair but is always truthful like that reflection in the mirror

We only get one…

M • is for the MANY things a mother will endure to ensure the safety , well being and happiness of their child .

O • is for the OPPORTUNITIES that a mother provides for their child on a daily basis .

T • is for the TUFF love a mother has to exhibit to their child even though it pains them to do so .

H • is for the HUGS that we love sooo much

E • is for the EVERLASTING love a mother has for her children .

R • is for the RESPECT that a mother deserves during her lifetime .

We only get one mother and no one can come close to matching the warmth of her love except , her own mother AKA Grandma….

Unconditional love…

From the moment you realize a baby was being produced you instantly fell in love and the feeling from what I’ve heard is indescribable but I do know that the mothers love is unconditional and everlasting and that our mothers risked their lives to carry us for 9 months and in alot of cases longer . And may I add their is NOTHING more breathtaking than to see an expecting mother beautiful and glowing….I will always love my mama……
