Get a Grip! Don’t Slip!

The tragedy of life is in what dies inside a man while he lives – the death of genuine feeling, the death of inspired response, the awareness that makes it possible to feel the pain or the glory of other men in yourself.

Just a reminder for everyone today, who are trying to avoid ending up back in a dark place. It does matter who your are, where you are from or how successful you are. We can’t ignore that at times, even in the middle of winning we can find ourselves spiraling out of control. Make sure to check with yourself and reset if things have gotten out of your control.

We have opportunities to grow in many ways but just make sure you don’t grow away from something genuine. Instead, especially when we are blessed with plenty, we should be aware that we remain grounded in our thoughts actions and reaction to others.

It’s easy to forget about how you may have struggled to be where you are but don’t do that! Remember the person behind who is about to slip and give them a hand up. It’s easy to celebrate when you are in the spotlight. But don’t forget the persons waiting in the wings, sitting in the audience cheering you the loudest; remember their time is coming too! Celebrate with them when it does and you are in the wings or sitting among the crowd.

It’s easy to get distracted by you, you and you; where it becomes me, myself and I. But in doing so you shut yourself out of truly being a part of something greater than yourself.

If you find yourself slipping, catch yourself before you fall!
