Bend don't break…

Bend don't break…


Wow… last week was one for the record books.  Let's just say somehow I made it without a massive heart attack.  

Friday, I felt like I had more than I could handle.  I remember telling myself as I was driving back to the news station, "I just can't do this anymore."

I was soaking wet (it rained during all of my live shots), I was so tired (working overtime all week), I was irritated, emotionally drained and well just done and then an exchange with my boss I would like to forget.  This all after the crew and I busted our butts to make magic TV.

Long story short, I didn't think I had anything left in the tank.  I was already thinking about my excuse to call in sick from work come Monday.  But here Monday is… and guess who's at work?  

The current time, 6:44 AM EST, and I've already edited for the am show, done three live shots, wrote two web stories and a partridge in a pear tree!

I say all that to say.  There is a storm for us all.  A reason and a season.  And a time to shine.  Its always darkest before the dawn.  With that… I always recite the following quote I once heard, "We do what we have to do to get to where we want to be." 

We were built to bend, but not to break.  On your worst day, you're stronger than you ever thought.  Believe that the rain is necessary to yield beautiful flowers.  Use your darkest hours to reveal your time to shine.  

Think of it this way… being great is so much better than being ordinary.   And when you have a bad day?  Don't beat people up!  WORKOUT!

Go Be Great!
