During Life’s Toughest Times, We Must Be Strong

You've got to love the game.

Without that love, you you are truly going to be pounding the pavement sad step after miserable step wishing you were doing something else. Really, what is the point in that? That should really be the 1st indicator that you should be doing something different – if you dread going in to do the work.

Step into this moment.

You know, the times where you grin while in the struggle, enjoy the agony, scoff at how tricky it is and challenge yourself more. Some can be systematic about their objectives and dreams , but for me, I’m really acting like life is one gigantic stage and there is a grand orchestra behind me playing all different kinds of tunes.

I am, for the first time, dancing through life at this time. Some amounts of time are slower, some much faster…but I’m dancing nonetheless.

You always remember the people that were there to celebrate with you when you achieved your dream. Regrettably, that is not always who you presumed it was going to be. But that is ok. They will turn out differently in some ways – often for the better and infrequently for the worse. But that’s life. That’s just how the cookie crumbles.

Each and every day I go a tiny bit deeper into attempting to be the individual I would like to be and bring out the good characteristics in myself that were concealed for such a considerable time. I’m learning. There are infrequently days when I do not travel deep down into the rabbit hole and search for things covered up inside. I don’t know if I may have it truly any alternative way. In reality that journey has been going on for almost 5 years now and it’s impossible to believe that I’ll ever return to that man before the man I’m today. One thing I do know for sure is that I haven’t spent any time finding myself, but instead have spent pretty much all of my time creating myself. I think there’s a huge difference there.

It’s creating versus finding… because in all truth, I didn’t have anything to really “find. ” I had to drop everything I had learned to become and everything I believed I deserve to be so as to become the type of man I had always dreamed of – not the man society or others told me I should be…but who I knew I may become deep down inside.

I make mistakes. Sometimes I come off too robust or start pouring things out too early. But I don’t run shocked anymore. I used to – I once was frightened of everything. Frightened of making mistakes…scared of myself…scared of losing…scared of abandonment…and I finally found methods to drop those one by one because they turn your life really quikcly into nothing. They take everything out of you and there you are…just one big ball of being shocked.

Our lives are a sequence of interpretations of what’s actually occuring in this moment. We bring with us stories and past events that shape what something means to us when it happens and that customarily dictates how we act. If we adapt and change that interpretation, we are able to change our entire world.

You've got to love the game.

This game of life. Without love…then what? What’s the point if you can’t love what you're actually doing?

One last thing – if you go hard in life and do everything deep rooted in love and keenness, it's going to be pretty tough to knock yourself when you cross the finish line, no matter the circumstances. Just keep that in the back of your mind.

Make mistakes going 100%. Sure there will be impressive wipeouts, but you will recover and be on your merry way again.
