Today I:

  • Questioned myself (many times)
  • Compared myself to others
  • Felt like an Imposter
  • Had a pity party
  • Procrastinated
  • Was impatient
  • Got Rejected
  • Complained

And that was all before dinner.

Each day is like a right hook from Ivan Drago.

We need to take the punches like Rocky.

Remember, “It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

We are where we are today because we stood in the ring and took a beating, mostly from ourselves.

We may have gotten knocked down but we rose back up from the mat and kept fighting.

We have to believe we have the strength to overcome any new obstacle standing in our way.

We have enough battle scars to prove it.

We see pictures and videos of people doing cool things, exploring life, appearing happy, and all of that excitement shines through in their expressions and actions.

But what often gets missed is the pain behind those smiles.

The family member dealing with cancer
The dog they had to put to sleep
The thin thread that is holding their marriage together
The stress of financial shortcomings

We are all going through stuff and even when it looks like we are the only ones suffering, it isn’t.

We have to remember that in our lowest moments everyone is going to appear happy. We want them to be happy but we know that life is also happening to them. Just like it is for us.

We have to know that whatever we are going through “this too shall pass” and we’ll have the opportunity to be happy ourselves once again.

We have to believe it.

That’s the only way we can move on.
