Why it is OK to fail sometimes.

Last month, I talked about how making changes to any part of your life is a pretty great thing to work towards. It really is never a waste of time or energy to do so.  Change and growth are good things. But what if you are making those changes, or at least attempting to do it, and it just doesn’t work out… What if you fail?

Try Everything

 

                                                                                                                                    

Okay, so I know that this is a reaaaalllly strange thing to say to a bunch of teenagers, but there is a valid life lesson here. 

Try Everything.  

Really.  Do it.  Try it!

Wait… ok, what about the things that are bad for you… Well, maybe don’t try things that are illegal, or immoral, or plain stupid… Tide Pod Challenge, anyone??? 

What I mean by Try Everything, is give life a chance.  Try things that scare you.  Try things that are out of your comfort zone.  When was the last time you tried something new?  Show of hands… What was it?  Were you successful??? How did it make you feel to try it?
