For the flower failuremonth of April, my blog topic was “failure.”  How ironic, I failed at writing anything on this topic until now.  Everywhere I look, failure has become a badge of honor.  “Fail quick and often.” “It’s better to fail at something you love, than not to try at all.” Even – “It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

I get failure – a failed audition, a failed class or a failed relationship are all a part of my path.  But failure is not a part of my vocabulary.  I don’t see the inability to complete a task, a plan and effort in business, as a fail.  In mid-stream, ideas flow in another direction.  Choices to recover or save a project are the natural way to run a business. Like risk, failure can be planned out.

In the month of April, I haven’t allowed failure to focus me.  I have been making plans and taking steps – the topic for May.  I can bypass failure by making plans and taking steps in the direction of my goals.  That’s all I do and I think I am in a pretty good place.  With the help of others – I keep moving ahead.

My pp b&winternal motto for 5 years has been: “Use my Voice to show others how to use their Voice.”
For me this is about singing, teaching people to sing and leading others into a social justice, cause or revitalization of their own thinking. With a rise in the suicide rate, illness and crazy political talk, it is time to seek a True Self.  Look around, there are many people ready to join you in finding a more authentic path.
Recently, I watched several interviews and videos of Prince, who died April 21, 2016.  Prince’s death is overwhelming to me because I can not take in the reality that his calm, energizing spirit of musical and spiritual brilliance will no longer energize this planet.  Prince has influenced me my entire life.  I am encouraged by his ability to get things done, produce excellence and live calmly.  He is spirit.
All this has rejuvenated MY purpose in life.  I have several “half-baked” projects I am creating.  In the next few weeks, I must finish them, allow them to grow and thrive!  I must remember that I am also energy and story and gift.  Not to others specifically, but as a creation.  There are things to be done and to say and more stories to be written.  With this inspiration, I am on the hook to get things done.  Let’s see what the spring brings.
