Chapter 10, Page 24, Book 19

Even if you stumble, youre still moving forward.

October 24th -  a stumble is not a fall

We all stumble in many ways.  None who is never at fault in what they say and do is perfect,  able to keep their whole body in check.

James 3:2

We are fallible human beings and will stumble.  We will never attain that kind of perfection on this side of heaven.

There are times when it seems like everything the could possibly go wrong is going wrong, And you might feel like you are stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t . When you feel like quitting remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right.  Sometimes you have to go through the most to arrive at your best.

We stumble when we least suspect it will happen.  You’re making progress then without warning you do something really stupid .  Each time you stuble, weather your failure was large or small, find the confidence to to grow and move forward each day.

If you’re human you’ll make mistakes so when you stumble, make it part of the dance.  Don’t waste energy trying to hid or cover up your missteps.  Just laugh and keep moving.

stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping stone to the optimist.

Eleanor Roosevelt.

Sometimes we are lucky enough to stumble upon something, perhaps the one thing, better yet, the exact thing we need in life at a particular moment.  More often than not, a something we didnt even know we needed. A combination I learned that rarely comes around in life.  But when it does youve got to be thankful for it and keep moving forward.

Were all stumbling towards the light with varying degrees of grace at any given moment.

I'm grateful that God allows us to stumble a lot but he seems to always catch us before we fall :)

Another day's post that seems meant right for me! This afternoon (at work) I found myself in the middle of what movie-makers call, The Perfect Storm. Naturally, both my tutors were gone for the day. I did much stumbling, yes. But I THINK I'm learning while doing so.


thank you for the kind words you left me on my blog. they meant the world to me. we fall but get right back up and move forward. "you’ll make mistakes so when you stumble, make it part of the dance."
