What Defines Us Is How We Rise After Falling

Grunt Style

Life will knock all of us off our feet from time to time. Should we be fortunate to remain among the living for any extended period, life’s going to knock you down MANY times over.

There’s nothing any of us can do to add or substract from this reality other than to accept it for what it is… which is a fact.

Whenever life does manage to knock you down, my suggestion is simply this… calmly get back up, smile and in your most confident voice say, “You hit like a bitch.”

Rinse and repeat this method as often as needed. Sould you get knocked down 7 times, then pick yourself back up and brush yourself off 8 times.

Find the courage and will to get back up each time in knowing that nothing lasts forever; change is the only true constant. So regardless of whatever knocked you down at that given moment, accept and find peace in knowing it too shall pass.

All you have to do is get back up.
