Those are the words of the five year-old genius that gave me this cute look last night. (Heart sticker, side ponytail—don't be jealous.) Yes, more babysitting. It was actually the easiest, most enjoyable babysitting job I have ever done. I had to cancel a girls' night to do it, but it was worth it. Anyway, back to my point.
The little girl was telling me about her ice skating play date tomorrow, and I told her that I wasn't a very good ice skater and that I usually fall down a lot. To which she replied, "Well, you have to fall if you want to learn." Amazing. I couldn't believe how something so simple resonated with me so much.
I've fallen down so many times in the last nine months. But, I chose to. If wanted an easy, complacent life I wouldn't have quit a cushiony job to take a risky one at a TABLOID magazine for crying out loud. You'd think I wasn't aware of the state our economy is in! But, I've learned more during this short amount of time than I did in the five years I was clocking in hours at an office. Somehow I am more in touch with who I am and where I'm going than ever before, even when it feels like I can't see past tomorrow.
I will continue to fall, but if anything, I know I have you guys to pick me up again ;) What do you think of this five year-old's words of wisdom? Has anyone said something recently that really struck a cord with you?
