I was just thinking about how a baby teeters and wobbles while learning to walk. Falling down and getting back up are an automatic part of the process. Often the fall is accompanied by laughter. At no point does the baby just sit there and refuse to try again because of failure.
What if life is about baby steps? What if the way through life is teetering and wobbling down a path? Laughing when we fall down. Getting back up. Continuing on and becoming steady in the process. Sounds like a fun and focused way to navigate life.
