A friend sent this saying and I thought I’d share it with you:
“There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.” –Unknown (at least to me)
I like it.
But something doesn’t seem quite right about it to me. “Getting back up is living.” Hmmm. Sounds close, but to me getting back up feels closer to surviving–which is a good and fairly important thing all by iteslf!–rather than thriving.
Getting back up is a critical first step and keeps one in the game, but to me it is what one does after they are back up that often makes all the difference.
