Survival Tip #272

Ten Count

Maybe you are so awesome life can never knock you down. For the rest of us though sooner or later life will get a good hit in and we’ll find ourselves on our backs staring up at some cartoon birds chirping around our heads. There is no shame in being knocked down. It will happen. Some of us it will happen to more often than others. The only shame comes when you don’t get up again, when you don’t get back in the fight. Always remember, while you are lying there on your back, that you have a ten count to get back on your feet. Your brain, your body, everything will be telling you to just stay down this time, but you must get up again. Stay in the fight.
