Today's Daily Om: On the Word Failure

Recently, I've been trying out a new way of framing my thoughts: I'm
telling myself that depression, anxiety and despair are all just
"incorrect" ways of thinking. I don't label them as bad or shaming, but
I try to just observe and recognize them. Then I remind myself that
they are incorrect, as if I took a wrong turn while driving somewhere:
it's one way to do it, but it won't get me to where I want to go, so I
need to back up and try again. I think this Om talks of the world
"failure" in the same light (and again, the bold is my own reminder to
myself). I like it; perhaps you'll find something good there, too.

Happy Wednesday. all. :-)
