My friends at Bounce asked me how I #BounceBack from challenges. They are on a mission to help people bounce back from hiccups and whatever laundry (and life) toss their way.
While I have many embarrassing stories to tell, today I’ll be sharing just one. The one that still haunts me a little to this day. Most of the times that I’ve made a fool of myself in my life have to do with tripping. I don’t know what it is, but if there’s an opportunity to trip I do. And I don’t just trip in my house alone (though that happens sometimes too), I trip with large public audiences.
I quickly ran down the stairs with a friend and found one of my favorite teachers, the student council advisor. I told her what happened and she told me a few of the most devastatingly embarrassing stories I have ever heard. I still think about those stories she told me that night. One of them had to do with someone at who was leading music in front of her entire congregation with her skirt tucked into her nylons. (this was a long time ago obviously) Now Bounce dryer sheets might not have been able to prevent me from tripping….but they could have prevented my advisor’s friend and her wardrobe malfunction. Can you imagine?
By now you should know I’m all about uplifting quotes. This one fit perfectly (literally and figuratively) with my embarrassing moment:

To take it one step further, I created a video of several embarrassing pictures of my awkward stages. If I can make it through these phases, I can #bounceback from anything. Right?
