Rise to fall or fall to rise???  

Posted by Divya A L

Have you ever wondered how many times you would have fallen before you learnt to walk perfectly well? Well, as far as i am concerned i am still in the process of learning to walk i suppose!!! Today was the 6th time in a row in the last two months that i have injured my leg.... I again slipped from the stairs :( :(

The first time i had a slip in the living room (thanks to the very fine finishing of the flooring!!!).. The second time in the bathroom (Don't know whom to thank this time... May be the soap!!!) the 3rd, when i was playing with a kid in the neighbourhood (it was a hide and seek game and i had apparantly hidden in the small garden behind his house which was slippery due to rain) the fourth again on the stairs ( and thanks to the water that was spilled by me which i discovered only after i fell). The 5th time just 3 days ago, i hit my knee against a nail in an auto... The nail was almost close to invisible but the culprit had caused such a terrible pain in my leg... :( Just as i was recovering from that, today i again had a slip and hurt my knee.. I even sense a light sprain (the degree of "light" i will know only tomorrow .. now it seems lightly light...)

I have this sick feeling that some strange weird things are happening around me.. Why six times.. After saturday's incident, i was horrified as to why it was happening only to me.... A person with a walking stick, slightly limping, managed to cross the road without even hints of falling down... My cousins child who is just a year and a half, walks as though he had been walking since day 1 that he landed on this planet. But why only i keep falling... whats wrong!!!

My inner voice told me - "Why should things always be wrong?? Don't you think such repeated actions carrying a message for you???" Well, looking at the brighter side of today's fall, i guess it is to rise up strong... Its for a purpose... Heard of "rising from ashes"?? may be its the preliminary exercise for such a thing!!! Wanna see how strong i wake up tomorrow............................... But before i sleep, there's another impy question that is troubling me - "People fall to rise or rise to fall????" Now that this is the sixth time, i am desperate to know the answer!!!

Maybe it is rise AND fall AND rise AND.. :D take good care anyways.. you dont want "rising from the ashes" to turn into "rising from a pile of broken bones".. lolz

"looking at the brighter side of today's fall, i guess it is to rise up strong... Its for a purpose." So even after 6 times you havent still become strong enough is it?
By the way why should one always fall to rise up strong?

Maybe the reason for all this is the work from home concept at office?? ;)
hehe..Just kidding....tk care of urself..

@sreejith: if i rise from the pile of broken bones, i shal be "you know who" of the harry potter fame :P :D he he....

@dilip: nope... u see, the no "7" is sorta auspicious to me... may be after the 7th fall, i shall rise really strong :D
