THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
I attended a summit recently. All the speakers, successful entrepreneurs, were asked this question. If they had a chance to change anything about their past, what would they change? They all said they would change nothing, including their mistakes. Because that was what made them who they are today. I found that very striking. Why is failure associated with such stigma while these successful people embrace it? In the moment, they probably felt discouraged and disheartened. But in the long run, they saw that it was all part of the process.
The song ‘Someday Soon’ was inspired by seeing someone dear to me go through a difficult season. I began writing it, aiming to inspire him to keep going and to not give up. Then I started to think of how relatable this topic is. I’ve struggled with feelings of inadequacy myself as a doctor, wife and mother. I’m sure you have struggled with this too, in one capacity or another.
The truth is that life is all about learning new skills, and failing is part of the process of learning. I heard this analogy recently. This speaker was trying to get people to not be afraid of failure. He said if you look at a heart, as it pumps it rises and falls, rises and falls. The only time it’s steady and not falling is when the heart is not beating.
So I’d like to invite you to go listen to the song and as you do, my hope is that you’ll be reminded that failure is part of growing. I hope you find inspiration in the words of the song to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Most of all I hope it helps you look forward with expectation to the success that will inevitably come as long as you keep going.
