Failure. It’s an ugly word, isn’t it? Ever since we were in elementary school, getting a big fat red F was bad news bears. We want to avoid failure like the plague, but it seems inevitable that we will all face some form of it at a point in our lives, doesn’t it?
Why we fail

Out of all of the blog post ideas I have jotted down in my Notes, I never fathomed that this was a post I'd be authoring. In fact, having 3 healthy full-term births in the past gave me confidence that such a thing could never happen
