Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but rising every time we fall.

A statement that has been said so many times in so many ways, but I love the way Confucius put this. Life can deal us harsh lessons at times. It can be a struggle, we have all gone through difficult times. From health, financial and social issues problems sometimes come thick and fast. But we must not hide from these as they are just as valuable lessons as the ones we sat through at school. If not more.

The world can be unforgiving, ruthless and sometimes unfair. But to not try to make things happen must be the biggest crime we make against ourselves. We must understand that we are not alone in our struggles and I always believe that there are many, many people a lot worse of than I have ever been. So no matter what knocks come my way I will not stay down, I will not give in, it’s just not in my nature. For no matter how hard I fall, I will always try and rise again.
