Failure's Fear


Upon very deep reflection What is my greatest fear?
I may have many, but one that stands above all other is the thought of failure.

Although I acknowledge that failure at times is inevitable and necessary for personal growth. I always pray that whenever it comes it is not final. Whenever it intrudes in my life I will not only have the renewed strength to defeat it once more but will at last be elevated tenfold after.

The idea however of never rising, having my obstacles eventually consuming me completely, is too much to fathom.

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
