I failed. Or did I?

Day two of the blogging challenge and it’s just past midnight and into the third day. I totally forgot…until now. So did I fail? I guess I’ve got to set some kind of an alarm or reminder for myself to make sure that I write my blog post. Because here I just started and I feel like I’ve failed already.

Failure. What does that mean? It doesn’t feel good to me. I can feel it in my body. I’ve been conditioned to believe that failure is bad. But Ariana Huffington says failure is the stepping stone to success.

What did I learn with this failure today? That I need to set up some kind of reminder until blogging becomes a habit. I like to use FollowUpThen.com to email myself reminders. Then when I check my email throughout the day, I’ll be reminded. I’ll let the email sit there until I write my blog post. And only then, after I’ve completed my blog post, will I delete the reminder email.

It’s 12:12am (Hawaii time). Short but sweet, I’m submitting my post so I don’t feel like such a failure anymore. I vow to do better…starting tomorrow. I will not fail. I will use this failure to be sure I don’t fail again. And I’ll stop feeling bad about failing. Because making mistakes is how I learn. To do better next time. 🙂
