I was looking for a thought for the day to inspire us all and came up with this one. Failure is a fact of life. But like Tennyson wrote, it’s better to have failed than never to have tried. I didn’t know when I started my journey as an author that I would make it. I banked on a lot of failure in the beginning. But through my failures, I learned to write a better book and eventually–because I kept trying–I published. I still encounter failure in many aspects of my life, but I count it up to my growing well of wisdom and push on.
Think about the cowboys breaking a horse. They know there’s the possibility they will fail in their first few attempts. That doesn’t stop them from trying. They pick themselves up, dust themselves off and saddle up.
If you’ve ever lost in love but moved on to another relationship, your failure may have made you better equipped to handle the next attempt.
Failure is the way we learn. Failure is the catalyst that pushes us on to succeed. Failure is the lessons learned that spurs us on to success! Have the guts to try, the thick skin to accept failure and learn from it, and the courage to keep on trying.
Have a great day and keep trying!
BOOTS AND LACE

Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon!
She wants no strings…but he wants it all.
After her philandering husband left her, Lacey Lambert found sanctuary, and a better class of friends, at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Where she learned that the best revenge—against her ex, and the “friends” who kicked her out of the Temptation Garden Club—is to live life to the fullest.
Now that her best friend is moving out of her apartment building, she’s feeling a little lonely. And more than ready for a little commitment-free sex with the hot new downstairs tenant.
Freshly divorced, Nick McBride isn’t looking for another failed relationship. But when the luscious brunette offers no-strings sex—with him and his brother—he can’t come up with a good reason to refuse.
After he gets over the shock that she likes it loud, long, and in front of an open window, he finds himself wanting more time with her. Maybe even on a permanent basis. But it’ll take every ounce of his cowboy charms to convince her to let him sweep her off her feet.
