I was once told by someone older (and perhaps wiser) that some of us will take a direct route up their Mountain of Life, while others choose a more winding path for their ascent.
She never mentioned you that you get a little off balance by taking the winding path.
So I’ve been climbing and winding, and winding and climbing… and I’ve seen and done many wonderful things because of this. But, as mentioned above, sometimes I’ve lost my balance along the way- but each time I did, I dusted myself off laughing.
I never said I was graceful.
