I've heard the rock star comment a few times. While I so appreciate the affirmations, it's hard to hear at the same time because I have failed miserably so many times.
My list of failures is long.
I am only human.
Which reminds me of this quote:
“I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong” ~ Benjamin Franklin
I have failed a million times but I get back up and try to do better the next time.
I'm no different than you. Just like you, I am only human and I keep doing the best I can with the information I have at the time. When I know better I'll do better and until then I keep doing the best I can with the information I have. Just like you....
This work is hard. The most difficult job I've ever had. We did not get to where we are overnight. It has been a long and arduous journey. J has survived and thrived in spite of my screw ups.
It has been worth it.
