I get knocked down, but I get up again. Usually.

People trip, people fall, I for one trip and/or fall on a regular basis. Fortunately my stumbles are unlikely to be televised or papped for millions to see. I am of course alluding to the recent tumble taken by the queen of pop, Madonna, as she closed this year's Brit awards. 

Ever the pro Madge picked herself up and saw through the performance to the very end. Said incident did also make me think about my own lack of grace. At 24 I still struggle to walk in straight lines, inadvertently bump into passers-by and trip, fall or cause some sort of accidental injury on a daily basis. Luckily other than my wounded pride, I've never been left with any broken bones or lasting injuries.

Needless to say there is no agenda to this post. I just wanted to put it out there that embarrassing moments happen to us all and even when it feels like the entire world has stopped to laugh and stare, people are probably too distracted by their own 'accidents' to even notice anyone else's tumbles.

On a side note, I do hope that 2015 is the year where I learn I to walk better in heels. Given my height, I probably wouldn't dabble in anything higher than the mid-heels I've accumulated over the years but I still think they would work wonders to help improve my posture.

Nevertheless I will be sure to avoid wearing Armani capes when doing so.
