Stand Up !

If you fall down seven times, stand up eight.

We can call them mistakes, we can call them setbacks, we can call them difficulties- or we can call them adventures in growth.

Life is always going to offer us a melting pot of experiences, many of them not easy. If we commit ourselves to learning from the hard times life offers up, even the most challenging events become grist for the mill- and therefore can be nourishing.

Some learning curves are longer than others- and even those fiercely committed to their growth, can step into the same pothole time and time again.  When this happens, don’t give up on yourself. When you know better, you will do better- and until you do, dust yourself off, take notes, make whatever changes you can, and work at being better tomorrow than your were today.

 If you fall 7 times, get up 8.
