I know it sounds like a really bad prequel to “Law and Order” but it’s not.
It’s actually a reference to what we do in life, from the moment we are born.
We try to walk, we fall. We try again and again and again until we do it.
We try to talk, we make a lot of unintelligible sounds and then all of a sudden we sound intelligent.
We attempt something, we fail. We attempt something else.
It takes a lot of courage to do this day and day out and it’s an act of courage to live a life out loud and full of purpose. I don’t know if you have experienced this but when you are enthusiastic and shall we say, loud, it makes waves. People notice.
My advice to you? Be you and do the things that matter to you.
The world is not served by you playing small, or thinking you are less than what you are a beautiful and unique creature designed with a wonderful spark that makes you you.
Sometimes the flame can be snuffed out but if you look for it, it can always come back.
Get off the bench, go make BIG plays. The world truly is yours for the taking.
Be bold, and ask for EXACTLY what you want and if you stumble, try again.
Along the way, if you are disappointed in what happens to you, be disappointed, feel it to the core of your being and really acknowledge the upset and sadness.
As my mother of choice says, “have a pity party, go there, and be there when you are, just don’t stay”- Wise words.
My focus tends to be on the pushing through, the next step, so I invite you to fully explore your feelings about something before “moving on” no matter how much the “world” wants to tell you. “Get over it”
Trial and Error, my friend. It’s a real thing, you live it and do it, every single day.
Think About It.
