Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living.

You don’t get drown by falling into a river. You get drown by remaining there. Falling accidentally and rising immediately was what distinguished Thomas Edison and Abraham Lincoln from the rest.

The most valuable lessons in life do not come when you are walking or running. They come when you fall down. You better take them and rise up!

Tahyira Savanna said this about the quote:

“It would never of gotten the name ‘Struggle’ or ‘Grind’ if it wasn’t just that. It is not easy. It is not simple. It is not normal,”

“While you’re minding your business while paving your own path we must accept that the universe still revolves and unforeseen situations will happen and it will make you fall down,”

“For most, you can rely on your savings (financially) or comfort maybe from family or friends (emotionally) but you are in charge of your psyche (mind state). You have to force yourself not to give up and make yourself believe that despite everything bad that has happened if you really believe in YOU and YOUR OWN DREAMS you will rise again,”

“Falling down is apart of life we all face it. When you are an entrepreneur you’re entire life is different. So when you fall down its different. Don’t expect people, who do not understand your life choices to begin with, to understand why you choose to struggle; why you choose to grind. It is for you to understand fully and solely and that is it,”

“We have bad hours, bad days, bad weeks, and even bad months but it is not for us to stop. It is for us to overcome. It is to prove to yourself just how strong you really are. No matter what hurtful things you endure you can always change your life and the people you want in it. I thought I could not possible become any stronger. But I was wrong. I can,”

Get back up.

“Living is the part of life that keeps you’re sanity. You cannot change or control anyone on this earth except you. People love throwing their insecurities at you. It makes them feel better temporarily. Misery really does enjoy its company. The faster you understand this the better defended you will be against the other humans,”

“It may be your parent it may be your sibling it may be your significant other but no matter who it is do not let them tell you who are you show them who you are. I am only 27 years old and those that know me personally know that I have seen, heard, and said A LOT of things. But I still stand here everyday trying to inspire others. I will not lose my light. Lets all SHINE.”

Life has pounded me down and thrashed me around, time and time again, but I always get right back up. Because I still love life – Just as the earth still loves the rain.
