    Falling

    I fallen a few times but the best thing about it is that each time I get up again I realise just how strong I am. When I'm up again I can appreciate my life more having seen what it's like from the bottom. As Dolly Parton once said - you can't have the rainbow without...

    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"...
