I’m going to win because I’m winning now. I’m getting what I want, despite adversity. And I welcome adversity as it comes, because it’s unavoidable. I’m getting mine. And it would take an act of God to stop me. I’ve always faced adversity. From myself, my family, and my environment; in that order.
But despite graduating high school from a motel room and coming from a family torn all different directions, I’m still here. We’ve all got problems and a history of them. I dodged some close calls. But haven’t we all? And life goes on.
But finding that sweet spot between survival and peace is thriving and abundance. It’s balancing the hardship, adversity and resistance with moments of pause for recharge. One cannot always be bombarded. Even machines need time to rest and recharge. Humans need love and connection; sleep and recreation.
I feel like struggling out of difficult situations is what life is all about at this point. I know that getting stuck in a struggle can be very discouraging, but pressing onward is even more rewarding. When your really struggling rewards will come as complete surprises. And who doesn’t like surprises?
Having 0 expectations allows for only upside. Tailwinds only help those facing the storms. And if you eat shit and take personal responsibility, eventually you’ll come across a pleasant dish you can savor and you can earnestly expect that quality will continue to improve.
