Sometimes life can be kinda rough. Really rough.
And sometimes you find yourself obliviously plucking along at your everyday life, when something that you have no control of, or didn’t even think was possible, slams you in the face.
You need to make a decision. You can roll over and play dead, or you can decide to get up and fight for what you believe is right, knowing you deserve better.
Last week, my family got knocked down. I’ve decided to NOT PLAY DEAD.
It’s been stress filled week, and my anxiety cup runneth over. But I’m not in it alone, I have amazing friends.
Next week, Casey and I (and Shireen) will be heading to NYC for a conference.
If I’ve learned anything from these two girls, it’s to never play dead. Shireen’s been through a rough (to say the least) two years. She’s never once allowed herself to give up.
We (Casey and I) entered her in a little contest. The prize is pretty much perfect for her.
Here is our official entry. And here is our official video (that Casey put together):
Shireen, cheers to never playing dead.
In writing this post, I’m entering into the Microsoft Windows Style Makeover Sweepstakes for a chance to win a head to toe makeover. (For Shireen.)
