Another day, another post, another blog.
Is that what our life is all about? Doing the same things over and over again until we die? What a grim perspective. Let me know in the comments how you feel about various routines in your life.
This challenge is sponsored by no other than:
Thank you for saving me from nothingness.
Today’s quote comes from a British scholar – Benjamin Jowett.
Never retreat. Never explain. Get it done and let them howl.
To me this is about determination. About never letting go.
Life has the ability to knock us down, and then kick us while we are already on the ground. It is not a fun thing. Often times it makes us want to curl up into a fetal position and stay that way until someone comes and lifts us up, and takes us to a safe place, where there is no hurt.
Some people give up once things start going wrong, but I see it just as a challenge. A challenge to do better. To prove it/ them wrong. Life can knock me around, but I will rest for a moment, and then take another swing at it.
People can be evil. They build themselves up by knocking you down. Such people are very insecure. It gives me immense pleasure to succeed, when they expect me to fail. I do not shy away from a challenge. I do not explain myself to them. I do not tell them what I am doing and why. But I am plowing right ahead. And when they see the headlights of me coming, it will be too late. They will howl in disbelief, self-pity and doubt.
*Britchy’s challenge had a “The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay” theme. I believe my quote satisfies that requirement, because it is all about moving yourself forward. It is about focusing on yourself, not others. Am I right?
