    Hello everyone,

    It's time for some little quotes inspiration/motivation for the week.
    “Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising up every time we fall.”- Oliver Goldsmith

    How does this quote relate to your journey?

    For me, this quote is not about aiming to be a perfect human, but rather finding the areas of opportunity to improve myself in every mistake I make. :D

    I'm pretty good at rising up...and falling down ;); :p
    Hence the name damaged armour. Been fighting this a long time.
    Like giving up smoking, every time I tried, I got a little bit smarter, until on the tenth try I gave up and didn't go back...

    Hi all,

    Hope you're all having a Sunday funday. It's time to share an inspiring or motivating quote, so thought this week we could reflect a little on making mistakes.
    “Remember that life's greatest lessons are usually learned at the worst times and from the worst mistakes.”

    What do you guys think about this quote? Yay or nay? What sort of mistakes have taught you some of the most important lessons in your life? How have mistakes been part of your journey? Would love to hear your thoughts on this quote and if this has been true or not for you @Damaged_Armour @pamela @JinxyWolf @Jimap @spentitallagain @Menz199 @Anita44 @KAG @yep123 @Hollymonster @ryan1019 @Kevcollingwood @Panta

    A definite yay...hardship builds character and strength. Just like we would lift weights to build muscles, if you carry a load in life it strengthens you.
    And also, I believe if you've been through hard times, the little things tend not to worry you as much. But different folks different strokes, so it might not be true for everyone.

    Hello everyone,

    It's time for one of my favourite weekly activities. On this occasion, though we could reflect a bit on "honesty". Whether that be being honest with yourself, your friends or family....

    "Honesty is often very hard. The truth is often painful. But the freedom it can bring is worth the trying" - Fred Rogers


    Can any of you relate to this quote? Has this happened to you during your journey? Are you still struggling to be honest with yourself, friends, family or partners....

    Would love to hear your thoughts @Paris196563* @Anita44 @Jimap @Menz199 @Squeaky @Damaged_Armour @Hollymonster @pylotar @spentitallagain @Panda21 @Gooldyfish76

    Dosnt matter how bad I stuff up, if I tell my missus the truth right away she dosnt crucify me, it's actually quite weird because by telling the truth, it allows you to grow as a human, regardless of the reaction.
