Remind myself to not give up:
Don’t give up my health and go back to smoking, dippin’ or chewin’.
Don’t give up on life and seek chemical happiness.
Don’t give up on relationships and become a recluse.
Don’t give up self-improvement, someone needs my help.
Don’t give up my spiritual life, hitting bottom once is enough.
Given up on:
Playing a musical instrument – no artistic genes in this body.
Sports/athletics - separated shoulder problem.
Must begin again:
Contact people to put together real estate deals again.
Learn to take and utilize some leisure time with family.
Better organize my time.
When I hear about a boring life I think of David Bowie’s quote,” I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”
When I hear about “never give up” I think about the part of Winston Churchhill’s high school commencement address in 1941 that says, “…never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” With the Nazi’s trying to destroy the Brits, they had to get serious about “never give up”.
I also have a visual of that frog throttling that stork that is trying to swallow him.
