Gone down in grand style? Climb back up!

This was written in 2013.


It is always fun to go down the stairs from the fourth floor, where I live. On my way downstairs, I normally skip some steps. I sometimes do a little "zigzag" dance with my feet. "I go down in grand style." I barely have a problem going down the staircase. The struggle lies in climbing back up.


I have never huffed and puffed when going downstairs. This is not the case in climbing up the steps. I am normally inclined to stop for a moment and relax before I finally get to the fourth floor. When climbing, my knees knock each other, my heart rate increase and my legs start to feel numb. There is no alternative of using the elevator because my building has none. There is no shortcut to get home. I have no option but to use the stairs.


There is something about the process of falling; you do not realize its repercussions until it has ended. It is like going downstairs. The fun moment ceases when you become aware that the same stairs on which you easily came down on becomes a challenge to get you home. "Going down the stairs" has always been easy for people.

In short, it is easy to go down the mountain than to climb it. I mean to say that it is easier to fall than to rise for many. Sometimes, we are carried away by the easiness in falling. We forget what our position will be if we get get down the stairs of life; that we will have to strive in difficulty and endure in pain to climb up. If success is a priority, then retrogression should not be advocated for. Have you gone down in grand style? Climb back up!
