Failure : The most important lesson I learned is about failure. This lesson I learned in my early 20’s, 19 actually. I was in college and working part time. I got a call from my father’s neighbor, my father was in the hospital and was very sick with lung cancer ( my parents divorced when I was young and we moved to Florida so I had little contact with my father). He needed someone to care for him as he had alienated everyone in his life. I left school and moved to Ohio and cared for him until he died. My biggest failure was not being able to heal him. I failed big, but I lived through it. I came away knowing how not to sweat the small stuff and live each day praying for grace and to live to my highest potential. Failure is a gift.
