~Wisdom Wednesday... "The Only Way Out Is Up"

When you are stuck between a rock and a hard place you begin to feel like the walls are caving in on you.  You’ve tried and tried again, only to find yourself still trapped between two walls.  In order to win a war you must first fight a series of battles.  You will win some and you will loose some, but ultimately it’s the war that needs to be won not always the battle.

the only way out is up

When you find yourself down on luck and both mentally and physically exhausted don’t stay down there, get UP.  Don’t allow any negative thinking to turn into negative reactions.  Remember, you become what you think.  When you aren’t doing what you want to be doing, don’t use that to justify idle behavior.   Keep moving around and doing something.  You have to propel yourself upwards in order to get out of the valley.   Prepare yourself for what you want to become.  Get up and show up for the fight everyday.  Gird yourself by feeding yourself with the knowledge you will need when you do make it out.  You can’t win a war if you don’t have the appropriate armor for the battles.

Keep your head UP, eyes UP, and stand UP everyday to fight the battle.  Eventually you will walk out of the old and right into the new.  Otherwise, looking down only keeps you where you’re at and you’ll end up walking into another wall.  Are you showing up everyday for the fight?
