There are no guarantees in life. Well, maybe there are a few. One guarantee is that life will at some point knock you off your feet. The lesson though is not always the why or how it happened, it's remembering to always get back up and keep on dancing.
In the video above, Jeffrey, my husband, was the Battalion Commander of a military police unit in Germany. The Battalion was hosting a huge ball and we were the "hosts" so to speak. Well, the dance line happens and I participate with Jeffrey. (If you don't know me, I'm an introvert and would prefer to be sitting at the table watching the others dance the line.) Sure enough, Jeffrey ends up hip checking me and my feet slip out from under me.
I was the only one who gave that moment power. I had the power to frame how I allowed this moment to impact me. Instead of allowing it to be a negative source of control, I chose to let it go acknowledging that it was funny even at my expense. Life won't always be perfect. There will be bumps in the road. Remember you have the power to control your thoughts and how you frame them.
