Try and Try

The following was originally written on July 28, 2005.

It seems that no matter how hard I work on my body I'm always forced to battle an injury. No matter how fast I get I'm always slow. No matter how long I wait, I realize I must wait longer. And no matter how much I learn I'm continually reminded that I know nothing.

It seems to me that defeating one obstacle just brings a greater, tougher challenge in my path. I just don't understand anymore and might not want to. But I know one thing. I pray to God in all his grace that I never quit battling them, never quit trying, never give up. Because when that happens, that will be the day I die. I might not die physically, but I'll just be a dead man walking.

Sometimes I have to ask what it's all for. Why do I even get up in the morning? Why do I continually try and try and never reach Valhalla? But then I just shrug it off.

I'm too busy taking on my next challenge.

Without cognitive disonance, our world would become flat.
The journey, not the destination, is what drives us. If we are satisfied with where we are, there is no more journey.
Sure, we hit obstacles as we proceed. But those obstacles cause us to learn and prepare for the next one.
In other words, "Never say die"!
