This advert is on TV a lot at the moment, its words are profound and important to anyone who finds themselves in adversity. I have deep scars to validate this.
Let me tell you something you already know.
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.
It’s a very mean and nasty place,
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 it 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’re worth,
then go out and get what you’re worth.
But you gotta be willing to take the hits,
and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of Him,
Cowards do that and that ain’t you.
You’re better than that!
Justice need not be served,
Learn to ask better questions.
Think outside the box.
Never forget, learn from your memories.
Keep your eyes open.
Keep your mouth SHUT.
Apologise to those you should apologise to.
And Remember that you are always your own worst enemy.
