Dont stop

“Good songs to run too.” I type this into gooogle then click enter. I am rewarded with a list of websites from all kinds of running companies. The second click is the one that brings me to a site with ten songs 7 which are not already one my iphone, I have hit pay dirt.

I download four of the seven, because I am cheap, to my iphone. Out of the four one of my favorite songs is a rap song by the artist Eminem. The song is called till I collapse. I love this song because it’s message is to keep trying and never give up!

I would love to paste the lyrics here to this post but there are some explicit words in the lyrics and I don’t feel comfortable pasting them here.

These lyrics did make the decency cut though:

“Feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength

Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out
Till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth.
Till the smoke clears out

This is your moment and every single minute you spend trying to hold onto it
’cause you may never get it again.”

I have written posts before about never giving up always pressing on and I will more than likely write posts again about the same subject. Endurance, there is so much to be said for that. I think the last line though puts some great perspective for endurance.

This is your moment and every single minute you spend trying to hold onto it
’cause you may never get it again.”

In Zen Buddhism the follower is taught how to enjoy and live within the moment.  When we start to accomplish something and set our long term goal it can be easy to become myopic and not enjoy or understand the moment. Right now is all that exists.   When we learn to tackle life one moment at a time we will realize our goals long and short term and live a full and happy life.

So what am I saying? Pour all you are and have into every task you take on and Never ever Give Up!

Peace
