Have you ever watched a child learning to walk? Before this week, I never had, but there’s a certain grace to it. Well, if not grace, then tenacity. Fall down nine times–get up ten. And the tenth time you get where you’re going, you don’t stop, not for obstacles, not for other people telling you to stop. You don’t listen to anything but that inner voice until you arrive where you want to be.
In times that are dark and God seems far [away], I look for him in small ways – the innocent laughter of a child on an airplane, the way the rain falls down through tree branches, the aroma of honeysuckle as I ride my bike down the Natchez Trace, and through the love of friends who have carried me through the darkest times of my life.
I have been into bodies and fitness, so I am very critical about how a body should look in terms of flaunting it. I would never fall down and roll and do a cleavage shot – I have seen those in Bollywood films, and those are things I cannot tolerate. I wouldn’t do that. That’s not me – I’d rather look sharp and sexy and stylish just doing a walk.
Maybe tomorrow is counting on meTo learn my lessons todayI’ll start by taking a step at a timeAnd stop throwing my blessings awayI’ll get myself up and I’ll brush myself offAnd take back some of the pride that I’ve lost’Cause you can’t always keep your feet on the groundI guess we all learn the hard way and we all fall down
My dad taught me from my youngest childhood memories through these connections with Aboriginal and tribal people that you must always protect people’s sacred status, regardless of the past. Every time you lose an animal, it’s like losing a brick from the house. Pretty soon the house just falls down, you know?
My mother was a continual source of wisdom and great advice…she taught me that there is always a way around a problem-you’ve just got to find it. Keep trying doors; one will eventually open. She also taught me to accept failure as part and parcel of life. It’s not the opposite of success; it’s an integral part of success. I talk a lot about learning to become fearless in your approach to life. But fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It’s the mastery of fear. It’s all about getting up one more time than you fall down.
February. Get ink, shed tears. Write of it, sob your heart out, sing, While torrential slush that roars Burns in the blackness of the spring. Go hire a buggy. For six grivnas, Race through the noice of bells and wheels To where the ink and all you grieving Are muffled when the rainshower falls. To where, like pears burnt black as charcoal, A myriad rooks, plucked from the trees, Fall down into the puddles, hurl Dry sadness deep into the eyes. Below, the wet black earth shows through, With sudden cries the wind is pitted, The more haphazard, the more true The poetry that sobs its heart out.
The Savior desires to save us from our inadequacies as well as our sins. Inadequacy is not the same as being sinful – we have far more control over the choice to sin than we may have over our innate capacity. . . . A sense of falling short or falling down is not only natural but essential to the mortal experience. Still, after all we can do, the Atonement can fill that which is empty, straighten our bent parts, and make strong that which is weak.
