In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Big To Fail.”
Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).
But failing is a good thing. We fail everyday which means we have the chance of attaining bigger and more meaningful victories.
Every morning, I get up to write. Sentences are written and are stopped midway. They fail for now as I take care of life and everything it requires me to do. Then I go back to my failed sentences in the afternoon or at night before I sleep, and I look at them: stories that have failed to be stories fifteen hours ago.
But there is a new day tomorrow, and my pen still has ink, so I’ll try again: remembering where I failed and working harder to fail less.
The guarantee of success, of not failing, is tempting.
But every heartbreak makes the eventual happiness even more meaningful, even more lasting.
