You've just been knocked down by life, again. Do you get back up? Literally or figuratively. Why do it?

Well, I've been knocked down a few times. Getting back up has been painful. It would have been a lot easier to stay down. It cost, in physical and emotional pain. It would be great to say I was inspired or inspiring. There is an element of that, to be frank. But, I like to say that I'm just too damned stupid to stay down.

Think about it for a moment. Life knocks you down. you fail at something, get divorced, lose your business, get sick, rejected, get hit by a Durango doing 70. Easier to stay down.

But, the view is horrible. You are either looking at people stepping over or on you or you're looking a the the smelly behind of someone else. So, you get up.

Sometimes , it seems you have to hit bottom to start back up. Just start back up. Any and all successes, no matter how small, are successes. Pebble by pebble, rock by rock you can build a mountain to climb back up.

And one more thing, don't let anything or anyone stop you. Not even Life. Get up.
