FIGHT FOR YOUR FUTURE

jeremy

Falling down is how we grow. Staying down is how we die.”

Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living. You can’t fall if you don’t climb. Remember stars can’t shine without darkness. Life is about moving on, accepting changes and looking forward to what makes you stronger and more complete.

It takes courage to grow up and become who you were created to be. But you have to do that. You owe it to yourself. And you owe it to the people who love you and support you.

  1. I guess some people have forgotten that once upon a time they laid where they were until mom, dad, or other care-giver picked them up, rocked then, walked with them, and even gently threw them up and down. Then all of a sudden, and most likely by visual example, they started rocking themselves, scooted over and over until they came to their knees. This may have taken time, and muscle memory of the steps, but they did it. WOW! They were making headway, so took another step and used the couch or table to learn to stand.

    But oh, down they went. Were they dissuaded? Nope. They tried it again and again until they could stand. This was progress. Finally, it was time to take a step. Up and down they went until they could take one-two-three successful steps. Mom and dad were thrilled and said so. Other people chimed in too. They were encouraged, supported, and told how cute they were. This encouragement got them to walk more steps, until they were walking funny, but doing it.

    A short time later, they were running, and still may have fallen a couple of times, but had accomplished a great deal. It took courage and was a bit risky, but so worth the mobility. They were getting places on their own. They had developed strategies to make it happen over and over. They would no longer just wait for someone to pick them up, rock them, carry them, or bounce them around. Whatever it took they now knew they could get there on their own.

    So…I have to wonder, how does one forget that they have the ability to get up and walk over and over again as adults? What does it take to go through the same steps to stand on one’s own two feet? When did the courage to try despite the falls run off to???
