It’s gonna hit ya in the face, and it’s gonna hit HARD.

You’re probably not gonna be ready, you won’t be prepared, and you’re probably going to be a little shocked when it happens.


Life has a habit of whacking you in face when you least expect it.

You’re cruising along in life feeling like things aren’t all that bad, let’s be honest, you’re kinda coasting, but things are ok, right, you got the job, the family, the weekend to look forward to.

Then it hits you, and it hits HARD.

It could be an accident, a death, a business failure, an unexpected situation, a lifelong friend stabbing you in the back, who knows.

It’s gonna hurt, and in this world, if you live long enough, it’s gonna happen! In fact, it will probably happen a lot. The more experienced you are the more years you hang out with the rest of us on this rock zinging around the sun, the more likely, someone or something is going to screw you over.

So what are you going to do about it when it happens?

The natural thing is to crawl over to the corner and curl up in a ball crying “mama, mama”.

What would happen if you got up, looked your life squarely in the eye, and said, “not this time you son of a bitch, this time, I’m not going to give in. I’m going to press on, I’m going to get up, dust off, and keep pressing on, no matter the case”

What would happen?

What “could” happen?

You’ll have to be the one to find out for yourself; I know one thing for sure though, if you curl up in the corner and take the easy way out, you WILL NOT get where you could, you WILL NOT personally grow, you WILL NOT do the amazing things you “could” do if you pushed through.

So when life kicks you in the nuts next time, get up, dust off, maybe even kick back, but whatever you do, keep the faith, and push through to your goal.
