The obstacles of life can get you down.
But do not let them.
Because – and I don’t even really know if it’s “fortunately” or “unfortunately” – you have very little choice in it all.
1. You can give up.
This is a known outcome. You give up and the obstacle, the adversity, wins. Game over. Maybe life takes
2. Or, you can keep fighting.
This is an unknown outcome. The future is still unwritten, there is still hope, and you have the increasing possibility of coming out on top.
I, for one, will keep advancing. If only one tiny step at a time.
Get up off the mat and come with me. Won’t you?
Whatever we face, we have a choice: Will we be blocked by obstacles, or will we advance through and over them?
