A lot of times, people spend far too much time dwelling on those places where they took a tumble and failed, that sometimes, they even fail to see the silver lining streaking past their very nose in the dark cloud.
Then there are those who are far too concerned with how others will view and judge them for a short-coming that they deny themselves the opportunity to grow from a lesson that life presented.
It’s for others to spend their energy judging, if they so choose to, that’s not your business what they think.
Your business is to pick up your life, dust your scraped knees and make something beautiful out of a situation that wanted to get the better of you.
