Life is unexpected. We go through our day constantly trying to control every facet. Just when we think we have gotten it all under control, it gets spun wildly out of control. Things that we never see coming blind side us and cause us to wonder “why me?” I was not gifted with the answer to that question. I looked back on situations that were absolutely horrible and found a common thread between them. It was only after I weathered the ‘storm’ was I granted more strength to handle tougher situations.
As Rocky Balboa put it: ‘Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that.’
