“To get up when you are down, to fight more intensely when you are struggling; to put in extra effort when you are in sheer pain, to comeback when nobody expects you to, and to stand tall when everyone is pulling you down are what make a champion.”
This is a quote that my oldest daughter put up on my board a couple weeks ago, which sits right over my desk. I read it everyday. I love that Victoria, my daughter, knew that I needed that so she printed it off and hung it where I would see it. It reminds me that no matter what is going on in my life, I have a choice everyday to get up and keep moving and make it a great day or sit down and be defeated by all the “stuff” that gets in the way of my goals. We all have disappointments in our lives. That is inevitable, but it is what we do with those disappointments that is important.
