    Growth Spurts

    Of Course It Is!

    Everyone is human and I personally celebrate when people or myself fail, you tried something new, you did something different, you were adventerous and tried. lol- I laugh because as I think about it, the movie "Meet the Robinsons" highlights this "ok-ness"...

    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...
