For every day you live pull-free, I want you to celebrate. And if you pull again, for two days, two weeks, or two years, the next pull-free day that comes around I want you to celebrate that as well!! Any day we can say "Hey I did it. I really did it," is a day that calls for a celebration. And I don't mean a brief pat on the back. Actually take a moment, and sit down, compliment yourself. Show yourself some love. Acknowledge yourself for every hard moment and everyday that went by that you struggled and yet you did not pull. Celebrate the fact that there is something really fabulous about you and you in fact accomplished what many have not been able to and some may never do. Perhaps this is just the beginning. Maybe just maybe the next time you go pull free you will go even longer.
No matter who we are, and what we do in life there will be a moment where we will fall off the horse. It does not matter how many lessons we took, or how good we are at riding a horse. We will fall off. Rather than beating ourselves off for falling why don't we pick ourselves up off of the ground, dust ourselves off, and hop back on!
It's time we all chose to enjoy the ride and the gift of life that all of us were given.
Because here is what I know . . .
Everyone is GIFT.
Everyone falls down.
Everyone can start over.
No one perfect.
And there is nothing wrong with any of us.
