Fall Seven Times, Get Back Up Eight!


Falling down and getting back up in life is a lot like learning to walk...Some days you can only mange to crawl, other days you may make a few steps with support, then you start walking on your own and eventually one day you're off running. It's a process that involves many stumbles and falls even when you get the hang of it however it's never the act of stumbling or falling that defines you but rather the courage to pluck yourself up off the floor through the tears and to try again.

"We all fall down in life guys but the question is, who gets back up?"
-Greg Plitt

You have to find that place inside of you that lets you fall seven times and that gives you the courage to get back up eight, I know easy said than done but once you do, it will be a powerful place to let you run free... to jump, to stumble, to grow, to fall and to succeed.

With love
Rainbow :) xoxo

  1. Rainbow, first of all you look absolutely gorgeous in that dress, it suits you! Second, YES! Isn't it amazing the power our minds have? Recently I had an obstacle that I was sure I would not overcome as it was something I'd struggled with a lot. But I put my big girl pants on and did it, and you know what? Now that I did it my mental state is so solid, I feel like I can do anything! You are such an inspiration, I adore you Rainbow, I hope you have a wonderful week my gorgeous friend! XO -Kim

  2. I LOVE your dress! I had a really bad last year and through that I learnt so much and how to become a stronger person! It's the bad situations which prove to be very beneficial for us in the long run :)

  4. I love comparing life to things we sometimes consider so mindless or mundane! I feel like it helps you to contextualise the tough things and shows that you can move past them. Sometimes you just need a simpler way of understanding!

    Also, I LOVE that dress you're wearing! It's such a gorgeous piece, it looks great for summer!

    1. Totally agree, it really helps in a way to break down the situation and to know there is both sides and that you can get through it. Thank you so very much! Have a beautiful day Erin! <3

  5. One of my favorite sayings :D <3 One of my great friends would tell me that when I would feel horrible about not having passed my drivers test the first time. I know it's not a big thing but I still felt so incompetent for not being able to do something so simple and this saying helped me realize that sometimes it takes more then one try to get to where you want. Everyone accomplishes things at their own time and you're no different. It may take you several times, and possibly more than everyone else, but eventually you'll get there. It's all trial and error and slow and steady always wins the race ;) By the way that is such a beautiful dress :D and the person wearing it is even more beautiful ;)

  10. Life has a habit of wearing us down, but I find that dressing the part of confidence and happiness helps me to feel that way. I can see that you share my love of color, print, and whimsy. The watercolor print dress is such a dream!

  20. Firstly can I just say, WOW that's a beautiful dress ! Secondly thank you, I needed this reminder to day It's amazing how you always manage to post something like this when I'm having a rough week, I've been really struggling to keep going this week and have been crying a lot at how useless I feel when I just can't do the stuff I'm trying to do in class but you're right I just have to keep getting up, dusting myself off and going over it again because it will improve I just need to give myself a chance <3

    Lots of love,Marianne xxx

    1. Naww thank you! You got this Marianne and always remember how much you learn when you fall down, I think it can really help knowing that there is something beautiful that comes from that fall. If you ever need to talk I'm always here and sending massive love, positive vibes and hugs your way! <3 xoxo

  21. Totally agree with your wise words and this quote, it should be my mantra to never give up, even it's hard. I really like that you compared falling & getting up after it to learning how to walk. What's more, you know what people say, the one who has never tried anything, never done mistakes. But mistakes meaning experience and here is the thing, which you cannot buy, so it's better to fall many times to reach the success at the end :)

  24. This is true! Sometimes we have to move on, move up, let go, shake it off, and say "next".
