A Slice of the Twenty-Ninth 3.29.2016

Falling flat on your face is a good thing! Didn’t you know that?

When you mess up big enough to make a fool out of yourself it teaches you more than a few things.

  1. How to laugh at yourself every once in a while.
  2. That you are in fact human and more than capable of (sometimes extraordinary) failure.
  3. That you are in fact human and capable of change.
  4. How to do, whatever it is, better next time.
  5. What you’re skilled in and in tandem what your not skilled in.
  6. That it’s okay not to be good at everything.
  7. How to see yourself for who you really are and be accepting of it.
  8. Who’s there to pick you back up again.
  9. Who’s there to push you further down.
  10. That what makes you a worthy individual has nothing to do with what you can do.

I’m not saying it’s a pleasant, comfortable, or always a fun thing. I am however, saying it’s a worthwhile experience.

It is an excellent deflator of pride, inflator of humility, and equalizer of mankind.

Like I said, falling flat on your face is a good thing.
