    Just Get Up Again

    It's fine to fall from time to time...so long as you get up again.  Even if you lay there for a little bit, it's okay to fall....so long as you get up again.  Even if you swear a purple streak, it's okay...so long as you get up again.We all fall from time to time.  It's okay...
