If You Think About It, This Spectacular BMX Fail Is a Metaphor For Life

No matter where you find yourself today, this GIF is an important metaphor for your life and the struggle we all face every day to pull off the impossible. We begin our day with a grand plan. Our to-do list is made out and the list of accomplishments we want to check off is firm and clear in our head. And yet, as so often happens in the nitty gritty of our day-to-day existence, life intervenes.

The result can be humiliating or even painful. We may lose a shoe on the bounce. And yet, when all is said and done and we take a step back to survey the results of our catastrophic endeavors, we may be fortunate to see that the impossible has truly been accomplished. The work of our hands may not be what we envisioned or wanted, but it has its own sort of messy, amazing beauty, hanging there from the support beams of life, that is all the more special because of its spontaneity.

May we all be thus inspired to do our very best at whatever we set out to accomplish today knowing that some days, failure is its own reward.
