Fight the Good Fight

I haven’t written here in a while. This is the first blog since I announced my writing was on a bit of a hiatus. Today, I wasn’t having a very good day. There are moments when I feel like life just keeps kicking me to the ground and there are times where I don’t really feel much like getting up to fight back.

Occasionally, when these days happen, I come across a meme that someone posted on Facebook and it helps pick me up and gives me the incentive to get back up and fight the good fight. So then I thought: “How many other people are having rough times in their lives and could use a little pick me up too?”

I decided today was the day that maybe I should start writing about these inspiring moments in lieu of writing my books. Maybe this is the path I am meant to travel for a while. So we will give it a whirl and see how it goes. I can’t guarantee I will post daily, but I will try to motivate myself to share any incentives that I receive.

This is the meme that provided the incentive for today to keep on fighting and never give up. Today was one of those days where I was feeling down and like a failure because I am not having any success with my online store. And the old adage comes to mind, “It takes money to make money.” And I don’t have the spare money for advertising and such, so I am relying on the hope that my friends on social media will help me out with promoting the store. Well, that concept has been a miserable failure and I feel like I am going to fall victim to the dreaded Facebook algorithms that will keep my posts from being seen by a majority of the public (unless I pay for sponsored ads).

I was having a moment that was synonymous with the one line in the Poison song: Something to Believe In. The lyric is “And it just makes me wonder why so many lose and so few win”.  Why is that? Why can’t we all be a success if we work hard enough to get there? Why is it that so many lose and so few win?

The meme earlier today reminded me once again of my favorite Triumph song: Fight the Good Fight. It seems like those moments when I need a pick me up, the song on my playlist will play and remind me not to give in and give up. So, I am pulling up my boot straps and giving it my best for another day.

So, along with the meme, I give you the lyrics to Fight the Good Fight. Enjoy your day and keep on fighting!

Fight the Good Fight-Triumph

The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines
Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay
The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart
Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do
Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way
All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can
You think a little more money will buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head
Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart
Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay
Every moment of your lifetime
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay
