Optimism Incoming: Bounce Back

Well, it was a fitting end to my weekend to see the New York Giants season explode into a million pieces…maybe my pessimism yesterday was too much? I apologize. Sometimes I just have to let out what I’m feeling inside. I try to stay positive the majority of the time, so I often have times when I let out WAY too much pessimism because it’s built up over time.

Anyway, as I implied above, the Giants lost in the playoffs today to end their season. They lost 13-38 against the Green Bay Packers. Three dropped passes for WR Odell Beckham Jr, and two more for WR Sterling Shepard. It’s too bad, because QB Eli Manning had what was probably his best game of the season. It was ugly. So ugly, in fact, that it seems as though Beckham punched a hole in a locker room wall in Green Bay. Stadium staff saw Beckham in a room with a hole in the wall that wasn’t there previously. This came after they reportedly heard what sounded like someone punching the wall. Nobody actually saw Beckham punching the wall, so the NFL is launching an investigation into the incident. I think it’s safe to say Beckham will be found guilty considering he tends to hit things after team losses, and especially after poor performances on his own part.

The Giants loss was the official end of this season’s NFL Wildcard teams. Yep, ALL FOUR Wildcard teams fell during Wildcard weekend. Bummer. Usually one makes it to the Divisional round.

WARNING: OPTIMISM COMING: On the bright side, I went undefeated in ten games of NBA 2K today. Also, it was a comfortable high-40 degree temperature in Denver today. I was walking around in shorts and a t-shirt, which was great, especially in the shining sun.

You see, it’s not about how hard or how far you fall, it’s all about how you get back up. Bad days will come around, but everyone has the capacity to overcome and make the next day a great one. Usually, you will overcome in a way that you don’t expect. As much as we’d like life to go according to plan, it won’t most of the time. And in those times when life doesn’t go our way, we keep trying and making a new plans. Why? Because we are all heroes, and all heroes have obstacles to overcome during their journey. These obstacles may be small hindrances, or they may make us want to turn back. How do we all overcome the obstacles to complete our journeys? We all focus on something that we are fighting for. What are we fighting for? Each of us is fighting for something different. Only YOU can decide what you are fighting for. What are you going to get back up for when you get knocked down? Whatever it is, climb the highest mountains for it. Swim across the deepest rivers for it. We can all be on top of our own worlds if we want to be. The key is not giving up. I know it’s hard when you’re falling down, and it’s a long way up when you hit the ground, but get up now. I promise you, someway, somehow, you will make it to where you want to go. And I know, even though I am still on my own journey, you will smile your biggest smiles when you reach the end of your journey.
