Just because things hadn’t gone the way I’d planned didn’t necessarily mean they’d gone wrong.

Glow In The Dark Fairy Ear Cuff

A small crystal is hung from the upper tip of this lovely ear cuff, which is shaped to resemble a fairy. Requires an ear lobe piercing to be worn, and glows bright blue in the dark. Sold on Etsy.

It takes a great deal of courage and independence to decide to design your own image instead of the one that society rewards, but it gets easier as you go along.
Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch (via quotes-shape-us)

I’d rather live failing than spend my days never trying. Failing doesn’t make me a failure. Failing means I am trying. It means I am stepping beyond my fears and striving for something more. Failing just means that next time I have learn from my mistakes and form them into my triumphs.

So I’m going to try, and if and when I fail I’m going to take a deep breath, and then try again.
