Jagged lines

We want what we do to be perfect from the start
We feel the need to succeed right away

But no success has come without trials
There is beauty in the imperfect climb
People who succeed
Have failed many time
They know how not to get discouraged
And stay focussed

They keep their eyes on the goal
And keep climbing
Detours and road blocks are
Part of the climb

If we keep doing something long enough
And improve as we go along
There is no way we can’t succeed
And the jagged lines of our climb
Make our path beautiful and unique

Scars

beach

Scars become part of us
And define us
Most times they tell the stories of hardships overcome

Scars upon our souls are invisible of course
But the have stories too

We walk around with visible and invisible scars
Sometimes we forget they’re there
Sometimes we relive old times

One thing’s for sure
We all have scars

Maybe we can learn to acknowledge them as parts of who we are

Not look at them with disdain
But as rungs of a ladder we climb
