Now there is this 6 year old that doesn't know how to skate lets call her 'N'. When N came out of the bathroom, I was standing there contemplating if I should go into the ice rink or just wait, she walked up to me and look at me and said , 'Pious can you hold my hand so we can skate ?' I responded and said 'am, eem I am waiting here ' N said, no come with me I am scare,
ME: I am scared too
N:Scared of what you are an adult ( her trust in me)
ME: I don't know how to skate, I am scared I might fall
N look at me with a smile on her face and said 'Its okay to fall Pious'. with that at the back of her mind she entere the rink and started skating she fell and fell but kept getting up and continued skating despite her imperfection. At the end of the day when I asked her how was her day she said' My body hurt but I had fun' I on the other hand let my fear of falling stopped me from having fun that afternoon and as we were walking in the snow back to the center I kept hearing her little voice saying to me, 'its okay to fall Pious' .... and I said to myself yes its okay to fall N.
As the year comes to an end and we are entering into another year and a decade, Happy New Year to you and your loved ones and please remember that 'its okay to fall'...
