Life update: Learning from “failure”

This blog is about my life experiences right?
So let me quickly update you.

If I haven’t said it before, I’m 21 years old Congolese girl born in Johannesburg, South Africa. I spent the first half of my life in the Democratic Republic of Congo  (DRC) and the other here in South Africa.

I come from a family of 7 girls where you don’t always feel special at times because your sisters tend be amazing at everything until you find your talent.

My life hasn’t always gone by way but as I grow older I start to understand why. See if it did go my way, life wouldn’t be as tricky and awesome as it is right now. I was raised by single mom who became both my dad and mom after my father passed on.

Life lessons I will never forget is to be grateful for what I have, to not boast about the things I have, to be humble, trust God and to never stop persevering. And just because you failed at something or something didn’t go you way, it doesn’t mean it was meant to be and that you should accept failure, instead you should pick yourself up, look to your sides and you will see another brighter path opening.

There is no such thing as failure, what society calls failure, I have learned to call

preparation for greater success
