The ability to get up and go on comes easiest to toddlers; nature’s way of assuring they learn to walk. Fall become more painful as we grow, the older we get the harder it is to get up and go on. Still slogging on is best.
Falls are life threatening to me as I am on blood thinners. I try hard to avoid falling, but still trip up and land face or bottom down upon occasion. Usually, nothing more than with a bruise to show and another lesson to learn.
And yes, I am grateful I have only been carted to the ER once in ten years because of a fall. Also grateful that the EMS guys were so handsome and attentive. As my mother used to say, “Small things matter.”
