Walk It Off
In sports you learn that nothing should stop you from finishing the game. Be it a broken nail or a bruised sternum. Your coach would come and put their arm around you and look at you with intent and simply say “WALK IT OFF,” you would nod and wipe the dirt and tears from your face and continue. Those three words made you finish. You got that extra boost of confidence and strength you needed to go on. What happened to that concept? Somewhere between childhood and adulthood many of us have forgotten that the minor inconveniences/injuries shouldn't cause us to quit. These things come to make us stronger not to beat us into submission. If you let that break up cause a break down, you’ll never get anywhere. So just remember when you get hurt in the game of life, take a brief time out to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, wipe the tears away, and WALK. IT. OFF. I promise you’ll be better and stronger for it.
