This morning as I was feeding Sean and it hit me. Tuesday is fast approaching and I will have another surgery under my belt. I wasn’t feeling too grand about the ordeal so I decided to watch a movie. One of the free on-demand movies was Rocky Balboa, the last of Rocky franchise films (so far). I’ve always had a soft spot for the films. While watching this one there was a great speech by Rocky to his son, I found it very inspiring and appropriate.
…Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!
