Why Do We Fall?
This is a scene from one of my favorite movies, Batman Begins. (As a side note, Batman is my favorite superhero for several reasons, which I will not get into now but I guarantee will be the subject of a future post… Yes, yes, I am a nerd.)
Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
I’ve been in a major slump these last couple of days, and getting out of bed this morning was a battle. Ultimately, I decided I couldn’t go another day feeling so low and that I was going to fight it. Pick myself up as best I can and make this a “fall forward.”
So today is going to be a day of “damage control” – emotionally, physically, mentally. I’m fighting for my very sense of self and everything I have worked for. I’ve come so far, and I need to move on beyond my relapse and learn from it. Make it work for my benefit.
I plan to report back tonight. I think that going through the day knowing that at the end of it I will have to be accountable will keep me motivated.
Will I be wanting the Batpod?…
… Yes. Yes I will.
