As posted as my Facebook status: A failure came knocking my door today. Yes, I failed my Grade 8 piano practical exam with 93 marks, 7 to go to pass. I am not upset, not mad, not disappointed. I kind of expected it, although was hoping some miracle to happen. Regarding to the failure, a few parties to be blamed including me and a few solid reasons to explain it. But, after all, I thank God for failing me this time, as I learned the lesson and gained the experience. Now I know, what to do for the next attempt. Thank Jeremy Kimber, the examiner, for failing me. *not sarcasm!*
Failure happens all the time in our life. Yes, it is surely depressing at times, think of the time, effort and sometimes money that you have given out. But what matters, is the process of failing that makes you get back up and shape you to be a better person. Yes, it is painful, sleep with teary eyes, become moody till there's hormone imbalance, lifeless with no direction and aim, and so on. But so what, sometimes it is just sad that you allow failure to conquer and control you, knowing that you should get over it and aim for the next success with a stronger and smarter you.
No fail, no success; no pain, no gain. I vow not to waste time anymore and start to deal with life. Pals, I hope you can face failures whole-heartedly with optimism and never give up. Fight for your life and be the winner.
