Take a moment and check out this very short blog post by Jon Acuff about failure.
Fail Like a Boss
One of my biggest struggles daily is learning how to accept anything less than my vision of perfection. Acuff's little nugget of goodness really helped me to envision what acceptance of failure looks like in real time.
And what does it look like? A great Instagram pic when it first happens, an afterthought ten minutes later, and absolutely nothing besides a lesson learned in the days that follow.
Failure doesn't have to creep behind you biting at your ankles. Failure can be more positive than that, if you choose to laugh about it, shake it off, and move forward.
So go forth and fail like a boss.
