Day 51

(from Deborah Moggach's These Foolish Things)
(or the "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" movie)

Day 51
The only real failure is the failure to try.
And the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment.
(As we always must)
Can we be blamed for feeling
that we are too old for change?
Too scared of disappointment
to start it all again?
We get up in the morning, we do our best, nothing else matters.

But it's also true that the person who risks nothing,
does nothing, has nothing.
All we know about the future is
that it will be different.
But perhaps we fear is that it will be the same.
So we must celebrate the changes...
because as someone once said,

Everything will be all right in the end.
And if it isn't all right, then trust me...
It's not yet the end.
