Taking them and being granted them. When we fall…..any kind of fall…..whether our own shortcomings or risks led to a rough patch or it just found us….How we find the strength, in whatever form we need….allows us to rise up….to a higher place than where we were before the fall. It says a lot about an individual. Being given a second chance, or perhaps this is a form of forgiveness by whomever, even the universe. Then, we need to risk…..our pride….in asking for…..a second chance.
