Default A baby learning to walk falls a lot.

We are developing new attitudes, new behaviors, new patterns for nearly every activity in our lives.
We cant be expected to master them immediately,The commitment to make progress on a daily basis
is quite enough.
We wont be perfect , Ever. The determination to keep improving is as close to perfection as we need
ever come, The challenge is in the effort, The growth is in the effort to,We are in this program to grow
& change. it will happen, sometimes in spite of ourselves, if we keep showing up to do the footwork.
Falling while learning to put a better foot forward is expected,The learning process is just that, a process.
A little effort one day at a time,will hone our new skills, we will look back on our old selves with disbelief,
How did we come so far, so fast.
