On Sept 2 @itskermit tweeted a statement that spoke to my soul.
I saw it today shared on Facebook and thought, seriously saying, F- it and doing something is much easier than psyching myself out with can do statements. The beauty of saying Fuck It is that you stop worrying. You let it all go. That girl you got a crush on? F-it ask her out. That diet plan you keep waffling over- F-it now is the time no more debate. Got to clean the attic, want to go over seas? Make it reality by saying Fuck this I am going. When the chips are down and you just can’t figure what you got to lose Saying F-it is a win. So friends for todays Motivation Monday embrace that Fuck This Shit attitude and get the job done!
“Just as a snake sheds its skin, we must shed our past over and over again.” -Gautama Buddha
Todays motivation Monday is don’t let the past hang you up. It’s hard to do and everyday I fight but the secret is not to dwell on the negative. Look forward to the future and as The Buddha has said “shed” your past.
When I was 18 I was institutionalized. My ever ceasing mantra was that I was climbing life’s mountain. I would survive living in the psych-ward and get out. If I kept my eyes on those current surroundings despair would have filled me. It nearly did on occasions.
Today I am still climbing the mountain, each of us climbs our own obstacles. The trick is keeping your eye on the top. No matter what life throws, keep climbing, the top is just in reach.

Is it worse to fail at something or never attempt it in the first place? You cannot succeed if you do not try. Failing is a part of the process. How can you know you will fail without trying? Ultimately it is worse to never try than it is to have tried in good faith and failed.
