Read those words a few times. Think about them for a minute.

I used to watch a program on The Weather Channel titled, “Fat Guys in the Woods.”

It is hosted by a bark eating, pony tailed guy named Creek Stewart.

The intro to the show was him saying that survival is easy…..Just don’t die.

That has resonated with me.

I have applied the concept to my life….changing the wording just a bit to:

Life is Easy. Just don’t give up.

Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?

And if you think about it, it really is. And we do it all the time without giving ourselves the credit that is due.

When life comes and kicks you in the balls, as long as you don’t blow your brains out, you aren’t giving up. You are moving forward.

And I know that that is a pretty stark concept. But it is the reality of the situation.

When you get up the next day, and even if you are just going through the motions, you haven’t given up.

Go you.


2016 was the year of discovery for me.

2017 in the year of change.

Go me. I will never give up.

You should never give up.

You need to never give up.

You are more important than you will ever know.

Rock on with your bad self.
