“Life will knock you down. The real learning starts when you have to get back up.” (Unknown)
Like me, I expect life has knocked you down more than a few times if you’ve been fortunate and a great many times if not. Sometimes, when we feel we’ve had enough, we may be tempted to just stay down there and asking why we should bother to pick ourselves up just to risk being knocked down again? However, here we are up and willing to give it another go. That’s because when we’re “down there” hopefully we’d rather be “up there” again and that’s our good ole survival instinct kicking in. Every time we continue to grit our teeth and do this we’re learning the lesson of being optimistic and hopeful that things will get better, so good for us eh?
