life is a constant battle of one form or another, the question is are we going to let it get us down or are we going to grow stronger and/or wiser because of it? Will we let life's trials shape us into better beings? Will we learn to Jump Rope?
I want to post something a little more somber today, a reminder that life is waiting for you to live it- not give it up. I have had many friends and a few family members who are constantly in battle- battle for the physical health, mental health, depression- you name it, someone's battling it and overcoming it.
An example is a band, called Blue October, who has overcome the odds and stigma that people associate with those who have to learn to manage their mental health. I have a huge amount of respect for this band as they promote mental health awareness & suicide prevention.
My point in posting this is to tell each of you that as you go into the new year, remember to stay positive and keep your goals in focus, and never let the jump rope get you down...because, this video is right- Life is like a jump rope. Go ahead with those dreams of yours and do what you love no matter what obstacles or hurdles you have to learn to overcome...
Though the New Year may bring you pain, it will also bring you Joy (which is far richer than instant happiness in my opinion)-if you let it. Here's to a New Year and all it may bring.
