The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.

The Slinky of Life: Rolling Downstairs, One Tumble at a Time

Welcome to the great tumble-dryer of life, where a fall is just an opportunity to execute a gymnastics routine you didn’t know you were capable of. Buckle up, kiddo’s, as we journey through the rollercoaster of life, inspired by Bard Dad Wisdom #17, ‘The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.’

Point 1: The Thrill of the Spill ????

Ever had a laugh over a toddler learning to walk? One moment, they’re wobbling about like a drunk flamingo, and the next, they’re zooming around the house faster than you can say ‘baby-proof.’ Failure? It’s just pre-success flailing. We’ve all been there – probably not as a flamingo, but you get the point.

Point 2: Witty Wisdom 101 ????

Here’s the wisdom bit, folks – every stumble, every spill, every trip over life’s randomly strewn Legos is a chance to rise again. It’s like life’s handing you mini do-overs, disguised as stumbles. And what do we say to do-overs? “Thanks for the rebound!”

Point 3: The ‘Standing Tall’ Hack ????️‍♂️

Every time you rise from a fail, you gain something invaluable – the knowledge that the ground isn’t so bad. It’s solid, it supports you, and it’s a great launching pad for your comeback tour. Plus, the view from down there? Really gives you perspective.

Point 4: The ‘Laugh it Off’ Mantra ????

If we can find a chuckle amidst the tumble, we’re already on our way to standing tall. So, remember, the next time life trips you up, give it a wink, do a somersault, and turn that stumble into a pirouette!


So, there you have it. The dance of life, complete with its trips, stumbles, and unexpected solos. Remember, the true glory in life doesn’t lie in never eating dirt, but in getting back up, dusting off your knees, and doing a little victory jig every time you do. Now, get out there and do the cha-cha with life!
