We’ve all heard fantastic sayings about life…”it’s a journey”, “it’s a marathon, not a sprint”, “when one door closes, another one opens”, etc.
The quote that resonates with me most is this one:
“I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
That quote is from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and if you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth it.
What I continue to learn, is that as long as you’re breathing, you can make a change. You may have lost some things along the way, you make not see the outcome you desire immediately. You may have to be in the trenches, fighting on even when it seems your uphill battle only leads to more uphill.
It’s about continuing to “man up”, and realizing that the fighters who win can not only throw a punch, but they can take one too.
That’s what’s on my mind today.
