When to move on, or why you should do it right now
I want to share with you the one phrase that struck me the most this week: ‘You don’t kill a winning horse just because it is limping now’ and I want to paraphrase this and say: ‘You don’t throw away a life just because you’ve been limping lately’.
It may or may not be our fault to limp, but we need to open our minds and see the bigger picture: this limping is one of many, and we need to love ourselves very much, see our faces in the mirror and say: “Honey, I love you anyway, you can be limping right now, but you will still win the race tomorrow. Keep walking until you can run”. Because walking is better than staying still, without movement, like a statue that does not move or feel anything.
Many times it seems like things in life are so NOT what we wanted them to be, that we begin to limp. And we start taking time off. We close our eyes and decide that we cannot do anything for the day. People then think we are kind of lazy that day. What they don’t know is that we are not lazy, we just have become a statue for the day. The problem behind this behavior is that it doesn’t lead us into better and greener pastures. Instead you need to realize that it builds up more limping. Don’t be a statue for the day. Start walking again, even if limping. Make sure you move. Make sure you feel the movement in your legs, in your heart and in your head. Get up. Stand up for yourself. Play the game, don’t just stir at it.
See your value, woman. Step forward. Your action, your movement, will show off your talent. Yes. Don’t tell me you don’t have talent, because you do. The limping will go away sooner than you think, and your talent will remain. Pick up the pieces. Look at the eyes of life itself and tell her that you love her and that you appreciate the great gift she is for you. And move on. Laziness is an image in your mind that you need to erase because you are not lazy, you are just playing in the minor leagues for a moment.
So, remember that winners in the big leagues play the game every day, and they don’t kill a horse just because it is limping.
