Sometimes in life you're so focused on your goal, that you don't notice the dips and bumps in the road to get there....
... that is until they make themselves known to you, usually in an up-close-and-painfully-personal way. It's often therapeutic to have a little cry. Take a moment or two to look back at what tripped you up, so you don't stumble the next time you walk that same path.
But then get up, and brush yourself off. With renewed determination, hold your head high. Refocus your attention on your goal ... and keep moving.
My seventeen month old gets it. Why do I, as an adult, sometimes get hung up on the hurts and lose sight of the rewarding goal?
