    Growth Spurts

    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...

    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...
