Knocked Down

800px-Box24-knock-down Last Christmas I got a lovely percent from my grandfather. He has been getting in to computers in the past few years, making videos and restoring old photos. He had scanned, and enhanced hundreds of photos from my childhood.

The childhood pictures are sweet, but there was also a bit older picture of me. It really made me take stock on who I was, what I’ve been through and what I have become. It made me realise how many mistakes I have done along the way. At the same time it’s these mistakes that made me learn and become a better man.

It also made me realise how much I appreciate all of the people around me who had the patience to put up with my youthful exuberance, I must have been a handful ๐Ÿ˜€ And they gently guided this stubborn young man on his path. For this I will always be grateful.

Now my journey is not over, just the opposite. I feel like I’ve only taken my first steps in this chapter. And I will fall down again, pick my self up and try to learn and be better the next time, because that is what life really is all about. I’ve also come to realise that when you do get knocked down, there is no point beating your self about it too much. Instead use them as an opportunities too grow and learn.

And that is where this week’s song came from ๐Ÿ™‚
