As you know, falling—literally as well as figuratively—is inevitable in Life. Of course you do what you can to prevent it, however, many times things happen so fast and so unexpectedly that there isn’t much you can do to stop the fall. The best you can do is to find some way to break or soften the fall so you don’t totally *kersplat* when you land—do what you can to ease yourself to the floor.

The same is true when you’re trying to help other people. You may not be able to prevent their fall but you can help ease them to the floor so their landing is as gentle as possible.

It’s safer to ease yourself—and others—to the floor rather than trying to stop the fall. Of course be pro-active about falling but then look for as soft of a landing as possible!

Your homework today is to think of ways you can help yourself and others to ease to the floor when a fall is imminent. Make a list and keep it handy so you can refer to it as needed.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

~ask for—and accept (!!)—help;

~read inspiring and uplifting books;

~spend time in Nature;

~take plenty of time for contemplation and reflection;

~journaling;

~take care of yourself by getting plenty of rest, eating fresh and nutritious food, and getting regular light exercise.

 

You can do it, I know you can!

I’m proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
