Falling Up

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Anyone else feeling a little upside down these days? On days when I find that I just can't seem to make heads or tails of a situation I love to flip through my poetry books I had when I was younger. As a child I loved poems, especially ones that were written by Shel Silverstein. His silly subjects, playful words and joyful rhythm of his writing was (and still is) like music to my ears. I recently flipped through my copy of 'Falling Up" and came across a beautiful inscription written by my mother that got me thinking....Even though the last few months we may have felt like we were falling down, maybe we were actually 'falling up'.

Getting back on your feet and looking up can often be harder than the actual fall itself. Sometimes it takes getting turned upside down to learn which way you see is the right side up. It is in the 'fall' that moments of greatness and strength can really shine. Falling down can be scary, but 'falling up' might just get us moving forward in the direction we were meant to go and help us to look at things from a different perspective.
