Growing

A few weeks ago, my niece was in the early stages of learning how to find her balance. So there I was trying to help her learn how to do so, and then she fell.

She cried.

My mother asked me what happened and I told her she fell. My mother's response was,

She is not crying because she fell. She is crying because she just experienced fear. Pity, she has no idea how many times she will fall and how many times she will be afraid.

There is a lesson in that.

 
life, fear, lessons
#01

#02

Ah. Thats fear perfectly described.
