Nevertheless, She Persisted

On Sunday, I spent a few minutes watching this small group of people practicing tightrope walking. They were having a lot of fun, and just watching them made me smile.

The girl in the foreground was doing really well until I stopped to watch; I probably distracted her focus. Nevertheless, she persisted. She repeatedly fell off and got back on until, ultimately, she was able to walk the thin line with remarkable balance.


  1. “What matters is not how many times you fall, but how many times you get up again.” There are a million versions of that quote, but it’s still inspiring to see someone put it into action, isn’t it? Hats off to the young woman; may she never lose that persistence.
