Don’t you ever forget to be yourself. The challenges you overcome along your way are the the things that will forge who you truly are and who you are going to be.
We are going through tough times, but being together is the only thing that can saves us. “If you’re not making someone else’s life better than you are wasting your time” is my favorite quote from @willsmith
so focus on making someone else’s life better, even by doing something as small as asking a random person “Are you ok?.” Let’s keep it real; let’s focus on overcoming obstacles; let’s unite.
When I was in the military there was a motto “Improvise, Adapt and Overcome” under the Marine Corp values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. My Senior Drill Instructor gave me a red card with those words which I placed on my front pocket. Every single time I was about to give up on a training, or a hike, or a running; I was taking my red card off my pocket, gave a quick glance, and pat myself in the shoulders “you got this dude.” Sometimes we do or we do not have a person to be there and say that “you got it,” “keep going,” “be strong.” I’m immensely privileged to be able to have my own voice to push me, but sometimes we need to be that red card in the front pocket from someone else. So please allow yourself to be strong and give strength to the people in your circle. Let’s all be that red card of motivation for someone else’s life. I guarantee you there are people in silent about to gave up, so be that inspiration they need to keep going.
Remember to Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome. I believe in you.
