"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down." ~Mary Pickford
This quote reminds me of my son learning to walk. He started off slowly, holding on to everything. He eventually got up the courage to let go and try to walk on his own and he fell. And, he fell a lot. But, he never gave up. And now he won’t stop running!
On the surface this may not seem comparable to things we go through as adults, but if you think of it from my son’s perspective, learning to walk seemed insurmountable, and arguably was the one thing that would help propel his future.
Crawl. Cruise. Take Baby Steps. Learn to Walk. Learn to Run. Never Stop.
