Don't it seem like there's never any light?
Once a day don't ya wanna' throw the towel in?
It's easier than puttin' up the fight!"
Let's be honest, I wasn't a full-time student at the "School of Hard Knocks." I have to admit an abused orphan who is scammed by violent criminals during the Great Depression has it slightly harder and knockier than I do. She's probably Valedictorian. You win, Annie... er... sort of... Still, I think we've all taken at least a class or two at something like the "Regional Institution of Solid Thumps" and, we can agree, at that school, somedays Life wins. And, man, Life can be a pretty sore winner! Sometimes life hands you some pretty harsh realities and you find yourself retreating to the warm embrace of the bed, frantically trying to turn your sheets into a white flag. "The SUCK will come back... Tomorrow! Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow... They'll be SUCK!"
We all have days like that. Heck, some of us have years like that! No matter who you are, life has hard-knocked you down a peg or two and made you hide under your covers. Some of us are probably still tucked away pretending to live life. For a while we can even fool ourselves into believing the idea that we don't have to actually get out of bed at all and life will continue on. We think we can phone it in and do it by satellite from the safe, remote location in the People's Republic of But-I-don't-wanna-stan. And you know what? We're kind of right. Life will go on... but it'll go on without us.

As a kid, my days were filled with ballet slippers, not boxing gloves, and I was way more into watching Russians like Mikhail Baryshnikov battle mice in "The Nutcracker" (swoon), not Russians like Ivan Drago battle Balboa in "Rocky IV"... Today though, this quote from The Italian Stallion's sixth film hangs above my desk for inspiration:
Lastly, the best part of all of this, is You Are Not Alone! My friend Serina is like Rocky and Annie all rolled into one. She's had her unfair share of hard knocks, but she keeps coming out a champion! How she kept doing it? I didn't know, but I did know I wanted that! I wanted her drive and success. I wanted change. I needed change. And it might sound clichéd, but with AdvoCare, I got that change. Real change. Not something that comes easy, no, but something I literally work for. Not only have I gotten back on track with losing some unwanted trunk junk, but I have a refreshed look on life! I'm also building a business & relationships that focus on health and hard work instead of shortcuts and quick fixes. Interested?

Just to be clear, Advocare is not a Lemonade Stand...
