I have a 10 month old baby, her name is Katie. As gorgeous and chubby as she is, she's not walking yet. At times I can see she's really trying very hard. but all she could do is push herself up then tumble down. If she falls hard, she'll cry, and she'll yell out mamadada... and I'll give her a cuddle, then she'll be fine. And it won't be very long before she forgets all about it and attempt again.
I start to think about my "baby walk" in adulthood. Sometimes we start something new, like a new career, a new business, a new family... At the beginning most of the times it's hard. We fail. We got rejected. Our boiling hot passion was met with cold water. Our expectation turned into frustration. All we want to do is yell out, God! where are you? Why didn't you turn up? Why didn't you do something! Why did you allow this to happen?....
God just smiled and gave us a hug.
So many times, we just want to give up. We just want to forget about it and walk away. We just want to cry, with tears, and say, "this is too hard!"
But God just says, No, baby, each time you fall, that just means you're a bit more stronger, and you're closer to walk. every time you fail, that just means you're one step closer to succeed.
Sooooo, when you feel that you have failed, don't lose hope! Give yourself a cuddle, a good sleep, a nice juicy fat bite, a day off, then shake it all off and start again! It won't be too far away.
