Drop back and feel the others surge past you.
Get hurt with the pain of losing, the fiery lunge on your insides as you plummet into the murk of agonized shame and harrowing embarrassment.
(Note: Do not follow rule if running in the Olympic final...)
Close your eyes and soak it up.
This is how it should be, this is where you grow, this is what defines you.
Plunging to these grueling lows, helps us reach those dizzy highs.
So yes, this may have been a mundane post...an uninspiring one , a 'scroll straight through' one- but it needed to be written.
Over discussed? Yes.
So, to sit back and summarise- I think it's safe to say ... this post has been a failure.
I'll leave you with this, a poignant present to sum up my ramble:
"Failures are but the pillars of success."
