The Game of Life

boxing gloves

Sometimes is seems like every time you turn around there’s a new challenge… and I don’t mean ‘challenge’ in a good way. Things start comin’ at you fast and furious.  You haven’t had a chance to deal with yesterday’s troubles, and already today has introduced a new set of ‘opportunities with which to excel’…and it’s exhausting, isn’t it?

Well, whatever you do, don’t throw in the towel. As long as you’re still in the ring, you are still in the game. Like Rocky Balboa, you’ve just ‘got to go the distance’.* Rocky may not have won that bout with Apollo Creed, but he sure made a lot of money with the movie, didn’t he?…and the next movie…and the next movie…

…all you’ve got to do is duck and weave …just duck and weave …and still be standing when ‘they’ ring the bell at the end of the game.

  1. Finally got to see those boxing gloves…and the butterfly. Loved the sentiment. Reminds me of the sentiment of Dory in Finding Nemo…just keep swimming, swimming. Amen!
