My granddaughter fell and had to get three stiches in her chin-ouch! I moved my dining room table and put two big scratches in my hardwood floor-ugh! Stuff happens and neither we nor our possessions stay ‘new.’ If you think about it, whether it’s the first dent in the car or the spill on the new carpet, it kind of relieves the pressure. Being a little worn or a bit tattered enables us to relax a bit rather than engage in the never-ending task of maintaining – so, consider putting your feet up and enjoy the moment. It beats washing the floor!

It is always a bit of relief to realize we (or things) can get hurt and still be OK.
Agree – what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger 🙂
