As the Sun set it marked closure of our legal allotted time, rendering the tags we possessed instantly striped of any value. This short three day season, came to a clearly defined close and we had failed. I was frustrated and angry, the list of excuses and alternative “should haves” began to compile in my mind. I walk through life so scared to fail sometimes. It takes time and in most cases days for me to deconstruct and begin the long process of reflecting on the lessons learned and identifying what I will do differently next time. Taking the chance to go after a new goal will always have to possible outcome of failure. Over time I have realized that you will always learn more about whatever it is your doing and who it is you are through failure. In the end I love it. I love taking the chance and missing. I grow to become better through it and to me that is the real goal.
