To fall on your face means
to fail or make a mistake in an embarrasing way.
The ony things in this world we can keep
are our thoughts and our actions.
Sometimes, to take action,
what we need is a change in our thoughts.
It can help to look at things in a new way.
Remember, when we fall short of our goals, it's okay.
No amount of personal mistakes will cause us to fall off the earth,
and no matter how stupid we look, we will still survive.
We are human.
We want approval for our actions.
We want shiny things, money, fame, a lean body, good health.
But these rewards are not guaranteed,
AND they do not have the importance we give them.
Because none of them will ultimately hold off death,
not even good health.
Failing teaches us to accept ourselves more deeply.
When we fail, we can pick ourselves up again.
Realizing that we will always ultimately fail can free us.
It can make us free of the need to prove our ability;
free of the need to earn and hold on to rewards from others;
and free from everyone's definition of success but our own.
