It didn’t last. But it was not failure. It was success.
That close bond. That friendship. That relationship. That lover. That connection you had. Those moments you shared. Those lessons you learned. The maturing you’ve done. The growth you’ve accomplished. Though you may have grown apart. Though you may have gone separate ways. Though you may have lost touch. Though you may have broken up. Though they may have passed. This was not a failure. This was an experience that changed you. Because of this, you’ve evolved into a new awakening that constitutes as success. You lived. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Congratulate yourself and enjoy what is now.
The job. The career. The workforce. The team. The colleagues. The staff. The group. The experience you had. The things you learned. The money you made. The contracts you signed. The services you provided. The products you sold. The networks you’ve branched out toward. The promotions you’ve earned. The bonus check. The times in the office and the times in the store. The meetings. The stock-taking. The accomplishments. Though they may no longer be. Though these may no longer pay. Though you may no longer associate. Though this may no longer propel. You did it. This was not a failure. This was an experience that changed you and helped you grow. Pat yourself on the back for learning so much. Congratulate yourself for the connections you made, for the products you sold, for the services you provided, and for the bonds that you created. Though this did not last, it made you evolve into who you are today. Congratulate yourself and enjoy what is now.
The home. The apartment. The roommates. The solitude. The atmosphere. The environment. The scenery. The remodeling. The rent. The mortgage. The lawn work. The bills. The repairs. The design. The furniture. The food. The moments in your living room and the dreams from your bedroom. The cleansing in your bathroom and the master (or disaster) chef moments in your kitchen. Though this may no longer be your home. Though this may no longer be your space. Though this may no longer be your scenery, your environment, your circumstance, your living quarters – it was your sanctuary. It was your core. It was your foundation. It was your safe haven. It was your base. It was your security. Wherever you are going. Wherever you may end up. You lived. You survived. And this gave you experience. It gave you shelter. It protected your life. And you made it home. Though this may no longer be, do not fret. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Congratulate yourself and enjoy what is now.
Tomorrow is never guaranteed.
