I am a computer programmer by trade.  This week we released a new version of the software that I have written that had some really major changes in it.  To say it didn't go well would be an understatement.  It went really bad.

So there it was, the feeling of failure.  I can sit around and tell you all the reasons why it didn't go well, but it doesn't really matter.  I walked away feeling like a failure.  It's a feeling that most people aren't comfortable with.  I'm not the only one who hates it. 

So today is Friday and the week is behind me.  I can take what I have learned and move forward.  The lessons are not only about programming mistakes.  They are about how I deal with failure.  Do I pity myself?  Do I dwell?  Do I pout?  OR Do I move on?  Do I fix it?  Do I trust in the abilities that God gave me? 

I chose the latter.


  1. Good for you! Can you teach me how to do that?

  2. good for you Tracey we all make mistakes or we would be the Savior. Don't take yourself so seriously. You're a great gal!
