“Fall forward. Sometimes, it’s the best way to figure out where you’re going. Never be discouraged, never hold back, give everything you got, and when you fall throughout life remember this: fall forward.”
When I think about this, I hope if I fall - I fall forward if only to see what I’m about to hit, but that’s not always what life gives us. We sometimes encourage others to lean left and right, but we aren’t always sure if there will be someone there to catch us or if they have the bandwidth to catch us. I’ve fallen and failed many times and it is through my failures in life that I’ve probably learned the most. We are not in control and we need to lean left and right to ask for help. It takes discernment to know what and how we can control. I’m learning that my attitude is one of the few things I can control and when I fail /fall, I need to pick up the pieces, check my attitude and move forward with a greater understanding of how to do it next time better with those around me.
Today as you go through your day, whether you fall/fail or soar, be sure to look forward and check your attitude. Only you can control your response to whether you get back up or you reach the sky!! Give everything and never hold back! A friend of LivingWell
