My thought tonight goes to all people that have in their heart the sadness of knowing that they have failed in something in this life. Whether it’s a relationship or a job, a friendship or a dream that never came true, we have all failed in life many times.
It’s a lonesome feeling, it’s a painful wound deep in our heart that has the same size like the dead dream we had.
If you happen to feel this right now stop for a moment and breathe. If you need a hand to hold your hand take mine. And know that failure is part of life just like success.
They don’t teach this in school. We are tought that we only need to win. Nobody tells us that some dreams are meant to never come true. Nobody tells us how many times we must hit the ground before making a dream come true.  You will fall many times, just remember you need to stand up again and in the end all will be all right.
No matter what is in your past my friend, raise your head proud and see how fantastic and unique you are. Don’t let nobody judge you, you are amazing, nobody has the right to judge you. You have failed? Carry on!!! You have won? Carry on!!! You are beautiful, perfect and unique, no matter what anyone says.

Much love,

Ela

    Nana korobi ya oki (七転び八起き) is a Japanese proverb that means, “seven times down, eight times up.”
    It is a saying about perseverance and not giving up no matter how many times you are knocked down.

  4. This is very beautiful and inspiring! And then there are right dreams and wrong ones, many times we can’t distinguish the right from the wrong, specially when it’s about love.
    Daisaku Ikeda said:
    “It may seem perfectly natural to simply follow the dictates of our emotions and desires,
    but the truth is that there is nothing more unreliable than our own self-centered mind.
    Life doesn’t necessarily turn out as we hope or plan. This is why it is important to become the master of one’s mind, rather than being mastered by it.”
