A few years ago I was walking across the parking lot here at work, lost my balance and pitched forward. In mid stride I knew I was going down, no doubt about it. In that nano-second moment of acceptance I tucked my head in and went down in a roll. In quite a feat of finesse I somehow ended up sitting on my bottom, unhurt in the middle of the parking lot. After a quick look around to see there were no witnesses, I threw my hands up in the air and gave myself a ten for a safe landing.
Adversity. We’re all going to have some. How you deal with it will determine how you rate yourself in the end. Literally.
