“None of us are responsible for all the things that happen to us, but all of us are responsible for the way we act when they do happen” – source unknown. A fall can be silly or embarrassing, as in a pratfall. Falls can be devastating, even deadly. I’ve had my share of graceful(?) descents walking on icy pavement. Had no idea I could do the splits while not spilling a drop of hot chocolate! Then there was the header down the oak stairs as a teenager resulting in ironic (or appropriate?) blood from my chin onto my red and white candy striper uniform. Still have the scar where the stitches were. Falls happen. I believe the most important part of a tumble (physical or psychological) is how I rise. My rise can be embarrassing, devastating, or graceful. I may carry a physical or emotional scar from the fall. But I rise!
