Keep Moving Forward

     Imagine a baby just beginning to learn to walk.  It starts off wobbling, falls, and gets up again.  This is repeated over and over again.  Sometimes holding on to something or someone until "Eureka ".  Success.  The baby didn't think about how hard the task was or even the consequences.  They're not embarrassed.  They get up and start wobbling off again.

     The beginning of this year did not start off as I hoped it would.  I've had a few set backs, and have had to reevaluate things.  Prioritize.  And perhaps most importantly let some things and people go. 

     Adults trip and fall too.  Instead of pretending it didn't happen acknowledge what's happened,   laugh it off, and wobble on.
