Sometimes things work out and sometimes things don’t. Failing at something is not always one’s own “fault.” There is a mystery in life that we can’t know, always working behind the scenes to keep existence balanced. I don’t claim to understand this mystery, but I am willing to concede that I participate knowing that I can make impact without necessarily being in control of how anything turns out. I chase my dreams. I do the work. And the outcome is always uncertain, no matter how diligently I do the journey. There are no guarantees in life.
