I went to my first ever group meeting tonight. I was really hesitant to go, but am so glad I did. It was wonderful. All of the women shared openly. We laughed. It was great. During the meeting I shared this “word picture” with the group. Maybe it will resonate with you too.
Everyone’s familiar with the expression “when you fall off the horse you have to get back on”. I have my own take on it.
Sometimes you fall off the horse and you need to take a minute to rest before you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back on.
Other times you fall off the horse, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and walk beside the horse for awhile because you’re just not ready to get back up there.
Then, there are times you fall off the horse, drag yourself over, grab hold of the stirrup and let that sucker drag you for a bit because that’s the only way you’re moving forward. But the important thing is – you’re moving forward.
