Failed attempts and what this day has taught me:
I failed twice while attempting to build a compost bin.
I failed at finding someone to go to dinner with me at the last minute.
I failed to see how interesting the neighbor's candle light dinner went when they closed the curtains and turned off all the lights. I am secretly jealous.
Some 14 year old teenager down the street shot at a police officer but failed to hit him.
Sometimes we shouldn't give up until we succeed.
Other times it's good to be a failure.
Now, I will go eat a sweet potato.
At some point later in the week I will re-attempt the constructing of my compost bin as well as find someone to eat dinner with me. I will probably also watch the neighbors make dinner.
