Is it really failure if you find that the path you are on was not meant for you? Maybe it was at one point, but you missed your turn and now you’re running down this road lost. Maybe you missed your turn. Maybe you were never supposed to be on this road at all.
Free will offers us the ability to make our own choices. I do not believe, however, that God, or the universe, let’s us veer too far before trying to get us to self-correct.
We live in a society that is so caught up with success and failure. It really makes me question how we handle our dreams and goals. Is it really failing if we find out the path we are on is not for us after all?
I would call that success.
