Good Morning Everybody!
A few days ago I ran to catch the bus, and you guessed right I lost my footing and tripped.
People helping me up asked,” What happened.”
“I fell” I answered “trying to catch the bus.” At that moment my friend who was with me nudged me and whispered,
“Don’t say you fell – say you tripped. If you say you fell everybody will think ‘oh, now she starts to fall.”
Best advice I had in a long time. It’s like I said in my book, don’t tell your age because people will treat you differently once they know how old you are. So let me repeat – when you tripped you didn’t fall – you tripped!
….and even when you don’t catch the bus and have a blue eye like I do
A Smile Changes Everything!

Hope your eye and your pride heal soon!
It’s the pride that is more bruised than the eye…….
