What made this quote stand out to me though, is the concept of falling down. I have done a lot of falling down in my life. A lot. We all have. Think about when you learned to walk, or ride a bike... falling was par for the course! It never stopped you from walking or biking though.
So why, as an adult, when I fall, do I feel so defeated? Where did I lose that sense of purpose, of adventure... where did I drop the zest for newness, the thrill of accomplishing what felt impossible only moments before? When did I become so fearful of trying? So afraid to live?
My wonderland is still out there, I know it is. It's possible I'm actually living in my wonderland right now, but I'm stuck in that dark hole, and just haven't yet reached the light.
