It’s been a while since I last blogged here. I know, I know. I’m sorry, but that truly means little unless I make up for it with some commitment to write more here.
As thanksgiving approaches, I’m wondering, what are you grateful for?? In the past couple weeks, I have been in numerous conversations about failure. In a seminar, we discussed the question, “Do organizations encourage failure?” In another class, the professor opened up with quotes about failure. Then, I was reflecting on a previous post from T, and it began to dawn on me. Just how blessed I am!
This thanksgiving, I am especially grateful for the ability to fail. I know it sounds strange, but think about it. Not everyone has the resources or network or faith to fail.
I am surrounded by people who support me and encourage me to go after dreams despite the fact that I just. might. fail. Passion is a huge privilege. So is failure.
What are you thankful for? Post it in the comments below. I’d love to know.
Happy early thanksgiving,
