The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in raising every time we fall. ~ Nelson Mandela

What an amazing quote and so true. I have fallen many times in my life. Some have been very painful and other times are just a stumble because of a silly choices.

My divorce would be a time I would say was a ‘fall’. It felt like a fall when I was sitting on rock bottom, looking up, needing help, and wondering how I was going to get up. But I did. It wasn’t easy, but it was something I needed to do. I had to do it for myself and my girls.

When you fall, even if it is the deepest pothole in your life, there are always lessons to learn and opportunities for your soul to grow. It can be very painful. It can be embarrassing. It can be shameful. It can be just an innocent mistake. No matter what has happened, you have to get up.

Getting up may not be easy, but there are a few things that can help.

  • CALL A FRIEND. This isn’t just to vent about your life, sometimes it can be just as beneficial to call a friend and ask about them. Just to get your mind off of what is happening. BUT don’t get me wrong, it is good to talk and share what is happening so you can start to process and move past it.
