Halloween Fun and Talking about Failures with Coffee: Random Tuesday Thoughts

So, yesterday was (obviously) (and if you’re reading this before midnight in whichever time zone you are, it’s still , so there’s that), and since I pre-schedule this post to post while there will be trick-or-treating shenanigans, I figured I’d do something -y fun. You with me? Enjoy!

One of my favorite actors from the show “Superstore” was sporting this costume:

It’s time once again for Leslie’s (aka Rory Bore) Tuesday !

The question or prompt for this week is:

“How do you handle your failures? Are you a crawl back into bed and wait for it all to pass kinda person? Or are you a jump immediately back on the horse sort?

It depends on what kind of failure we’re talking about – because really, I do both. If it’s an epic failure that I’m beating myself up about, I tend to hibernate until enough time passes that I won’t suffer embarrassment being in the company of people that know of the failure, or witnessed the failure.

But if it’s not an epic failure (or if it’s more of a failure in my mind than what other people perceive) then that’s when I’ll definitely hop back on that horse and forge ahead. One thing is definitely certain, however, I am the kind of person who learns from my mistakes – so when a mistake (or failure) is made, I take the necessary steps to make sure it never  happens again.

That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome, random or not. And that means even if you don’t have a specific Rebel post posted, you can still link up, I’m not picky. You don’t even have to add the badge, just link up so I can come harass you on your blog. I promise to play nice.

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. Ha – I understand that reference!! 🙂
    I think I definitely do a bit of both, but more to the point that I realized after having a conversation with a friend about this today, more appropriate for me is that the amount of work I do to AVOID making mistakes is probably more important to be examined. Hmmmm, something to consider I suppose, because I didn’t really see myself as Controlling per say. But simple Aware.
    Now I have to go hide for awhile. ha.

  2. It sounds like you’ve got a pretty good handle on failure, and at any rate you bounce back to try again. That’s the most important thing, isn’t it?! 🙂

  3. lol, the vocabulary is hilarious! I think the failure we have endured over time is what makes us who are. To fail is human right?

    Awesome post my friend.
