Failure Friday

So baby Chebet is growing up, like she is about to do adult things like rent an apartment in Jozi as she works and cooks and all…and this past week has been a build up to tomorrow when she finally goes to check out her new place. This week has also been full of sleepless nights and horrific mornings because of the thoughts of what she will do in case of burglary or rapists or gangsters or a serial killer, yikes! Or what happens if the electric blanket catches fire or the gas starts leaking or she doesn’t pay electricity on time and she has to be in darkness or she kinda falls in like with the guy next door then gets drugged? Yikes yikes yikes…
I think one of her failures has been only anticipating the negative. It is only when she was landing into the beautiful lighty night that is Jozi and said silent prayers that she decided to be more positive and to circle-of-concern-zone most things that she unnecessarily worries about. So “Stay soft Shazuri,  stay soft.”

*Origin of Failure Friday: a culture I have borrowed from my ah mazing internship at Spire, we would sit together at lunch and share our failures and the lessons learnt…it made failure so okay and so much fun 🙂 It made me want to risk more and maybe fail more and hence learn more #GrowthMindsetToThaCore #FailForward
