Queen of Your Own Life

Failing is not the end of your story

Failing is not the end of your story say authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff of Queen of Your Own Life

She knew that to fall was not the end of her story. The best part of her story was when she had the courage to get back up. – Queenisms™

Everyone has failed at something. Everyone has fallen on occasion. Everyone has struggled with sorry, regret, disappointment and more. Those low points are part of a full life journey for almost everyone we’ve ever met (and the others were lying). But the low points are not the full story of you. You have a heroic story.

The heroic part of your life story is the time you put your feet on the ground, pointed yourself forward and did what had to be done to move from the low point to middle ground and finally to a personal summit. We know you’ve done this because otherwise you wouldn’t be here, reading this. We know you’ve moved forward and that you can do it again. There is always an opportunity to make a different choice if the one you made didn’t work out. We’re here to say that whether your road has been smooth or bumpy or out and out rocky, it’s still a road and you’re still a worthy traveler.

    I’ve fallen several times….walked away from my marriage with nothing but what I could put in my car, the end of a 7 year relationship with the love of my life when he walked out to find himself, and the day I received the phone call that I had a very rare and aggressive form of Breast Cancer (IBC), and went thru 15 months of treatment. My journey has not ended, in 5 months at the end of May, I will reach the 3 year mark, which indicates that if this type of aggressive Cancer has not returned, I should be in the clear. Despite this times mentioned above, life has been a wonderful journey and I enjoy every single day. I have a whimsical attitude toward life and try to be a better person each day. Thanks so much for this wonderful site.

    Failing, falling apart maybe not the best part of my human experience but possibly the most valuable. I am learning to perfect the art of falling, falling, floating, flowing … like an Alice in Wonderland… Slowing down in my fall, in my misstep, learning to take a pause, to switch off, to take a rest, to reassess, to GROW. Without falling there is no growing. I am also letting go as I am falling to make my journey down lighter and my lending softer.
    Here! For me this is the year of falling and not getting up so fast. I trust that I will be lifted up eventually. For now I want to enjoy my fall, which is so often accompanied with grief, pain and sorrow and compassion inevitably follows. Melting away, surrendering to these soft sweet sensations washing away burdens of days, years of struggle … expanding the range of my emotional inner music. Feel it, savor subtlety of each note … don’t FIX it!

    Feeling your feelings, acknowledging where you are, in the moment, and trusting you have everything you need to move forward when you are ready is a great sign that you have your own back, Queen Mila. Bravo.
