Have you ever felt like life is hard? Like it can sometimes be a struggle to get up in the morning and do all of the things that you have to do?
Do you ever wake up feeling constantly tired and stressed? Does life just seem too much?
Sure, I get it. You have lots of work to do. Perhaps you have debt. Maybe you’re tired from shopping and maybe you’ve got a stomachache.
Think about someone who has a rough night’s sleep, unsure of whether or not they’re going die during the night. Then they wake up, no time for a shower or a nice breakfast, and they leap straight into action. They ignore their wounds, they take lives and they see their friends and their brothers in arms shot and killed in front of them.
But no I get it. You’re tired. You had to work until 6pm last night…
What I’m getting at, is that your life isn’t really all that hard. You might think it’s hard and sometimes it might even feel hard.
But there are people out there with much worse lives than you. There are people out there who live with a crippling illness and don’t two cents to rub together. And many of them do this with a dignity, a grace and a bravery that puts the rest of us to shame.
Now think about a true warrior.
