Life is a series of misadventures. The stories we tell afterwards, we call adventures. It is the failures, adversities and mishaps that are the notes, musically speaking, that make the ballads of these stories. The setbacks in our endeavors, weather, illness, fear, error, and bad luck, add to our growth and make us what we are.
