I won’t back down. I can’t back down. I won’t quit. I can’t quit. I won’t give in. I will continue to do what needs to get done. I will continue to do what I know I need to do, each day, every day. A lot of days suck, a lot of days are no “Fun.” But that is OK with me. This is what I have been created for. This is what I want, what I have chosen. While you and others indulge in distraction, I will continue working on getting better, stronger, and smarter. I am preparing for the future. Brick by small brick, I am building, creating something new out of the old. I won’t be distracted, I won’t be caught unprepared. You won’t throw me off course. I am focused. I am hyper-focused. Locked-in. Dialed-in. Ready. This place is lonely. But I am learning. I am learning so much about myself and others within the loneliness. You think you know, you think you have it all together, all figured out, but you don’t. You are trapped within a false reality created by and for yourself. You are another soul living in a world of mediocrity and average. I have to rise above, I have to block out all of the noise, block out all of the distractions. I must continue the fight. Continue to fight each day to live the hard, difficult life, that I was born to live.
