Fall down, get up, repeat!

My son, 16 months, learned how to walk two days ago.  He would take a step or two, fall, laugh, and get right back up.  This went on for hours!!  He was so entertained!

He just keeps trying.  He will try and try and try again until he masters it!  We all did that when we learned to walk.  That force inside us that pursues our goals is there, waiting to be used!

I think we can watch babies and gain a lot of insight into how to handle life.  My son lives in the moment at this young age, and it is truly wonderful to witness.

Can we have the same attitude now, as adults?  Fall down, laugh, get up, and try again?  Maybe we won’t laugh every time we fall, but we sure can get up, dust ourselves off, put a smile on our faces and keep persisting toward our goals.
