Right to Fall

In yesterday’s post we talked about falls being inevitable and, while we take reasonable steps to prevent them, the best thing to do is to help others—and ourselves—ease to the floor for as soft of a landing as possible.

In today’s post, we’re taking that one step further because, whether we like it or not, everyone has the right to fall.

Everyone has the right to live their life to the best of their abilities. This means that they are allowed to make decisions about the direction of their lives that we may not agree with. Even if we see that their decision may be a “bad” one, they have the right to make it and follow through with it.

They have their own journey and their own destiny in Life and it is not our place to interfere with that. We can stand by and offer a helping hand as needed but we do not have the right to impede or prevent them from living their lives fully.

The same is true for us—we have the same right to live our life to the best of our abilities. No matter what anyone else thinks, says, does, likes, or wants, we can choose to like, want, think, say, and do something different.

While others can stand beside us and offer support and encouragement, they do not have the right to stop us from making decisions and choices that we think are the best for us.

Your homework today is to note the things that are still calling to you in your heart and soul but you’re not doing them because someone is telling you it’s the wrong thing for you to do. If you think it’s the right thing to do, then do it—go for it!

Break the steps into small pieces and little parts and then break those into tiny bits. Then do the bits!

You can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
