TGIM and a Happy Monday to you!
I want to start this amazing Monday with a quote from Mr. Rocky Balboa.
“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place… and I don´t care how tough you are, 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 ain’t about 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 worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain´t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain´t you! You´re better than that”
Sometimes life is hard, even for Coach Matt. Sometimes life is rough. I may want to paint a nice picture of my life on Facebook or social media or even in my TGIM posts and blog. But no life is not always fun and uncomfortable times and bad things do happen. Life is not always sunshine and rainbows as Rocky would say.
But you just have to keep your head up and keep fighting. Keep going on and making slow steady progress.
Song of the day – Sia – Never Give Up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6Ol3eprKiw
This video below really spoke to me today about this topic so I am including it for your viewing pleasure.
So in the hard times I say – Never give up. Keep working on yourself. Keep working on your dream. Keep working on being your best self. Keep moving. Keep working out. Keep eating healthy. Do your best.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~ HOWARD THURMAN.
I have also read that quote from a book by John Eldridge called Wild at Heart – I highly recommend that book.
Today I also grieve the passing of my Father who died 11 years ago today. RIP DAD! Love you and miss you!
