I’ve been re-watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies recently. I started with the first Iron Man and now just wrapped up The Avengers Age of Ultron
I needed some comfort food (the best top notch million+ $ kind) in a troubling time in my life. I guess you could say I need some heroics in my life right now.
One thing that holds true with Marvel hero’s — and hero’s in general — is there will. The kind of will that get’s you up off the ground no matter how hard you were punched or kicked in the face. Will. And the willingness to fight for what you believe is right. And wit. A lot of wit.
The ability to joke on the worst days, and pick yourself up (or pick others up / or allow yourself to get picked up by a helping hand), and to help when all odds are against you, and all you have left is your friends and your wit. Now that’s heroic.
Every day won’t be happy. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be. Happiness is willed into your life from the inside.
And hard work is what wills our ideas and dreams into reality.
Sometimes we get beaten down.
But beaten down doesn’t mean lost.
There’s always away.
We just need to stand up and keep fighting for it.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
