Becoming is Better than Being

Becoming is better than being; Growing far greater than birth. Expanding minds in space and time In search of one’s true worth. Nothing is gained without walking in rain, Sun, snow and hail. Greatness arrives not out of blue skies But from all the times we fail.

    I've never walked in snow but hey, I'm great!! lol. No, I agree with you wholeheartedly. For sure we grow in strength when we learn from our mistakes and failures. Good one, Terrell. :)

    Beautifully said Terry,the trip may not be always great but that makes the good times all the more cherished and it takes strength to get up when we fail. So much thought in this that sorts out why we need failure (I think) Love, Lizzie
