I have learned that it's okay to fall, as long as you keep getting up.

I have learned that it's okay to go down, as long as you get back in the fight.

I learned it's okay to make mistakes, but I need to take lessons from them.

I learned that nothing is more valuable than friends and family when you need them.

I learned that it's okay to be carried once in a while.

I learned that when you reach out, whether its to pick somebody up or let them help you up, the act is important, not always the result.

I learned that everyone falls short, but it's unacceptable to stop trying.

Thanks my brothers, for helping me remember this.

Peace and love,

Scot \:D

I like this. To think like this, it makes everything seem more positive. Because, whether something goes good or bad for us, or work or not work as we wish, we learn from it. To have learned is to have accepted, and gained. It makes us bigger and better. I am now learning that what scared me before can now be seen as a challenge. And what I have struggled with before and felt was failure before, it is now another step to succeeding finally. THank you to share this with us.

This is one I could really use some "extra credit" home work on. Thanks Scot for reminding me that no matter the reason it is the act of reaching out that is imporant. I forget that regardless if I'm being picked up or helping someone else up I can still learn something from it.

I like this, makes me see the lessons learned from all the bad. It makes things seem more positive. When we gain the knowledge from it, we can accept easier, makes us bigger people, and more real. I am glad you osted this, perhaps will make it easier to see the lessons in other things.


Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible in not a declaration, it's a dare.

That thought is a gem. I love it.
