How we recover from our misfortunes says a great deal about our character and resilience. Getting back on the metaphorical horse after a fall can feel frightening and yet it is the only way to grow positively from our experience. We will have to dust ourselves off and try again many times in our lives and if we can do this with an open heart we will continue to evolve.
It’s not a new idea at all
It’s not the first discovery
But lately when I fail I’m called
To focus on recovery
For it’s no help to whinge and yelp
No time to sit and wallow
Far better to console yourself
Look up and hope will follow
It’s how we rise after the fall
We must treat ourselves motherly
For all of us at times will fall
What matters is Recovery!
