A really short story for you today. (Imagine sitting around a circle with crossed legs and me opening a book and reading in my pretty librarian voice)
Then you hit your first speed bump and you get whoa whoa whoa wobbly. You fall down. When you hit the ground and you freak out because everyone else is seamlessly jumping around you. (you might even give us all the pouty lip)Then what do you know. You bounce back up and look who made it to their butt. That exact person that you were comparing yourself to. Maybe you can’t even see when they hit trouble, failure, hardship, but they fell down too.
The moral of the story. EVERYONE falls down. The key is WHO gets back up. Maybe even more important, WHO gets back up with a smile on their face, grit in their teeth and is ready to try again. Don’t just give-in or pout (like I did with last week). Don’t compare your path to theirs. Yours in unique to you, cherish and embrace that.
Fall down seven times, get back UP eight.
