There is No Tragedy in Falling

Happy Wildcard Wednesday! For today I just wrote a few words to get you up the mountain and over the hump day. 🙂

There is no tragedy in falling. There is only tragedy in letting them pull you down. There is only tragedy in letting them keep you from climbing. In letting the nearsighted on the ground tell you they could see the exact pebble you tripped on from a million miles below with complete disregard for the great stretch of scenery between where you left and where you ended up.

As long as there are mountains to climb, do no listen to those who tell you otherwise, for there is no tragedy in falling.

(Apparently, we’re just really going for the Mother Abbess theme this week. Another chorus of “Climb Every Mountain”, shall we?)

  1. I have fallen up mountains (in Bali) and fallen down mountains (in Japan), but despite the physical pain and emotional bruises, missing those experiences would have been tragic. Great thought for Hump Day!
