Two Quotes To Reflect On

“Every day begins with an act of courage and hope: getting out of bed.”  -Mason Cooley                                             On a personal level, this quote hits home for me. For starters, I have suffered from depression for the most part of the last 10 years or so of my life. Most days seem to be a struggle for me. This often includes the act of having to peel myself out of bed almost every morning, regardless of how badly I want to just lay there for an indefinite amount of time. There are many people who have never experienced what this is like. Those are the same people who would be the first to try to discredit this quote in one way or another. I am here to tell you that it does take an immense amount of courage and hope, every single day, to get out of bed. You want to know why? Because, this world is so unpredictable on a day to day basis. When you wake up in the morning, you have no way of knowing if something good or bad will happen to you that day. There is no way to guarantee that you will make it to see tomorrow, or that your loved ones will. There is no way to predict that today will be the day you win big on a $1 scratch off ticket.

“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.”  -Victor Kiam                                                                        I am really surprised at how true this quote is. I can’t tell you how many times I have “fallen on my face.” I can’t even begin to predict how many more times I may “fall on my face” again in the future. Regardless, in one way or another, we will still be “moving forward” each and every time we do so. The reason I can say this so confidently is because, every time that I have done this, I have learned a lesson or two from whatever situation caused my downfall at the time. It may not have realized the lesson immediately, but eventually I did. Sometimes it may take falling on your face, time after time. But eventually, most of us learn something from our (occasional) repetitive, mistakes. When we are able to take a lesson away from those mistake, we are indeed, moving forward!
