I Get Knocked Down But I Get Up Again

    Everything Will Be Alright

    We should choose to get up, instead of being down all the time. yeah, we do get those bad days, hard stuff, sad moments, and it's okay. It's okay not to be okay---what matters is that you learn how to get up from the fall & try to look at the brighter side of life.

    Down - Up

    I've been put down many times and as many times I got knocked down, I always seem getting up again.  I guess, it means something!

    I can confirm that i almost died five times.

    Once from a self inflicted injury to the jugular due to so much emotional stress which most can relate to. Three times from car crashes. Its not that i was a bad driver, i was actually the victim to each one. The final one which came so close was from a virus of which i...

    You Can't Keep This Lion Down!

    I am not invincible that is for sure. At times I can even be vulnerable and that is most likely when a huge invisible fist punches me right in the chest and sends me reeling! But, I get up, lick my wounds and go at life again, just a bit wiser every time!

    I Get Knocked Up

    but I get down again.... wish I had thought of that. Turns out the very young daughter of a friend on EP was singing the Chumbawumba song and unwittingly transposed the up/down words. Soooo funny. Especially since she had no concept of irony.

    I've done some pretty spectacular faceplants in my day.  Some literal, others emotional.  Both kinds hurt like a SOB.That's okay.  I'll just lay there a minute to bleed, swear profusely...then haul myself back to my feet.

    I Do....

    ~ Of course what I'd really like is to NOT be knocked down so much. : ( But beggars can't be choosers..... So in order to make sure that the a$$es of the world don't win, I continue to pick myself up & carry on. Eventually I'm hoping that I'll be awarded for my...

    Life's Rough and Tumble

    It a simple fact of life.  The phrase, "I get knocked down but I get up again" doesn't mean I go out looking to get knocked down.  If it's a hard, unexpected blow, it's especially shocking.  I'll have to sit down for a while, shake my head, and regain my...
