Words to live by

Last night I watched Rocky Balboa. I was struck by the scene with his son when he said these words:

“the world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows; it’s a very mean and nasty place. I don’t care how tough you are – it will beat you to your knees and keep you there, permanently if you let it…but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth, go out and get what you’re worth. But you got to be willing to take the hits and not point the finger saying you aren’t where you want to be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that! I’m always gonna’ love you no matter what. No matter what happens. You’re my son (daughter*) and you’re my blood. You’re the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna’ have a life.”

~ Rocky Balboa

* I added daughter, because I have four of them.

    Jenny, Your blog is beautiful! I love your photography and relate to your words “Ordinary Time”. I will put your blog on my blogroll. What part of the country do you live in? You would be cool to pal around with. Thanks for stopping by and God bless your day! ~ Christine
