Dont TELL me how great you are, show me how great you are. Its Monday, and if you think Mondays suck, remember, someone has it worse. Does your Monday suck or are you being lazy and worried about yourself instead of kicking the crap out of the day? There are warriors slugging it out in Afghanistan. Some wont come home. Anybody shooting at you today?
No, then before you tell me how bad you Monday isgoing to be think, just stop and think about those that have it worse. The dad whose daughter has cancer at 10 years old, the brothether who has been laid off and has a family to feed, the Marine that escorted his brother home from Afghanistan in a casket. Yes, please tell me how bad your Monday is going to be I can hardly wait.
Unfortunately, those that come to One Marine’s View don’t have this issue of spewing how bad their day was, they kick the dog crap out of it. But fortunately, you do know someone who needs to hear this and the other stories on One Marine’s View so please send as required.
There are are many times all of us feel over whelmed. Some times even the best of us kicked knocked down. We all get knocked down from time to time. What matters most is the very net thing YOU do after you get knocked down. Dont tell me how great you are, show your family, yourself how great you are.
Time for a CGAR!
