Meaningful Monday

Truer words were never spoken! If you are having a rough time, if you are having trouble making ends meet or just completely down-and-out… never, ever give up! Get back up, brush yourself off and get right back at it! You never bounce so high as you do from the bottom!

Our hardest times are what gives us the inspiration to continue on! Any success, no matter how seemingly small, is significant!

Keep on going, even though you are tired.

Keep on going, even though you are hungry.

Keep on going, even though you don’t think you can.

You can. And you will. And you will succeed.

If you are an Indigenous American, you understand this quote immediately… if you aren’t Indigenous, you might have to research a bit to learn just how significant it is… it’s by Red Eagle in the song “Still Here”. Give it a listen…

“Trail of Tears and we’re still here…

Wounded Knee and we’re still here…

Sand Creek and we’re still here…

Cortez and we’re still here…

Slavery and we’re still here…

Smallpox and we’re still here…

Boarding Schools and we’re still here…

F**k what they talking about! STILL HERE!

Red Eagle, chorus of “Still Here”
