|There comes a time, Patricia Bokowski, in every life, when the valiant choice is made to take a courageous stand for oneself, in spite of consequences, against those who have behaved irresponsibly. And this is good. |
Sometime afterwards, it ultimately dawns on all, however, that what they might be most concerned with are their own responsibilities. And this is trebly good.

“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!”
– Winston Churchill
Life is like that. 👈👈👈
You’re so deep in you don’t even know how to get out ;-(
And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, it knocks you back five spaces in the blink of an eye!👈👈👈
The problem here, as I see it, is a lot of people having a hard time getting back up again after being pushed back so far!https://www.ninefrogs.com
Trust me, I know, getting up and trying again is no easy feat.😥😥😥
Especially if you have been pushed back more times than you care to count.
Let’s face it, we all have a breaking point! 🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
Only, the path to our destiny is bound to be full of set-backs and failures.
Unfortunately, that’s just how life works!
Most of us when we are born, and look at any little kid to verify this, with a pretty big amount of enthusiasm towards life.🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
Try and calm any little kid when they have an idea in their head, and you know exactly what I mean!
Yet, somewhere over the years, it seems to deteriorate in us, rapidly in some cases.
And, unless you are quite aware of it, trying to catch it is a like a free fall into oblivion ☹☹☹
There is also this thing called ‘determination”, again, many of us lose this over time😣😣😣
But, what many don’t get, it’s still in you.👈👈👈
You just have to work on developing those skills again.
The skills, which are necessary to handle the ups and downs of #life.💪💪💪
Especially when we are living in the middle of a #pandemic 😷😷😷
Just remember, even on the days you don’t think you have it in you, you do💪💪💪💪
The storms of life will come and go for as long as you live!
We all know that.👈👈👈
And, sometimes those storms are simply a rain shower and pass quickly. 🌈🌈🌈
While other times, they are a hurricane, and last far longer than we could ever have imagined. 😥😥😥
Only, as the saying goes, ‘tough times don’t last, tough people do.”
If you have unfortunately, like me, been through more storms than you care for, count yourself lucky that you made it to the other side.🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
I mean, that’s the whole point of the storm!!!👈👈👈
To come out wiser, stronger and more resilient!
“Life is like the ocean, you take it one wave at a time!”
The trick to this whole life thing, YOU HAVE TO KEEP GETTING UP.👈👈👈
I know, a lot of people don’t want to hear that ;-(
I know it’s hard hard.💪💪💪
Trust me, I KNOW, more than you know😩😩😩
Especially when you have really just given up.👈👈👈
Like, hiding under the sheets and not getting out of bed, giving up😕😕😕
And sure, given we are living under #quarantine day #3971963, it’s understandable 😷😷😷
Sorry, I’ve lost count, I’m not quite sure what day it is, just, like everyone else 😉
But THAT is exactly when you need to keep going 🎯🎯🎯
You don’t have to have EVERYTHING together, just work with what you got!
Here is my last piece of advice, even during these trying times.😎😎😎
It’s easy to give up, it’s like the easiest thing ever.🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
ESPECIALLY now, I mean, what a great excuse…’I’m living in the middle of a #pandemic…yes, you are!
But, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t embrace life, and give it all you got!
So here’s the thing, if you are at the point of giving up, (which many have told me there are at that point), please give it one more try!😁😁😁
The point is, NEVER give up 🙏🙏🙏
And remember, I am only a phone call away if you need me!
Patricia <3 always
