Lifes Ladder

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
Lao-tzu, Chinese philosopher (604 BC - 531 BC)

Life is a journey. One must be willing to take the first step in order to begin that journey. This journey is not for the fainted hearted and will not be easy but remember what choice do we have expect to continue on with the life and circumstances we are given. This journey should not be wasted. It is important to learn how to get up even after the biggests falls and begin again. If you do not begin again your journey is halted and you may have regrets later on, so instead of getting dropped and not getting up, get up and jump feet first back into the problem. Once you jump back into the problem you will see what you did wrong and even if it happens a million times, you will know that those million ways for that situation are not the answer. Nothing should be considered a failure because life is about living and learning.
