The Nine of Wands reminds us that it’s the determination to keep going that sees us through all things.
True failure isn’t found within the mistakes made, that’s part of the learning process. Rather it’s not trying at all.
Honestly? I think there is a time and place for each of these options.
Sometimes you can break down a wall, while other times you need to wash your hands of it and walk away to do something entirely different. And there will be times you need to roll up your sleeves, tell yourself you got this, and approach it from a new angle.
Regardless of whatever it is we face in life, we must never give up on ourselves. The moment we do that is the moment we have lost. Until then, we keep trying, keep learning, and keep growing. Ever onward and upward.
