Keep Moving Forward: Knowing When to Run, Walk, or Crawl
The following are some of the reasons why you might want to keep moving forward:
1) You don’t have much time left.
If you do not move quickly enough, your life will end soon. Your family may die too.
2) You don’t like what is happening around you.
You feel helpless.
3) You want to make sure that your loved ones survive the coming chaos.
4) You want to stay away from those who would harm them.
5) You need to get out of here before it gets worse.
6) You just don’t care anymore.
Life is meaningless without meaning.
7) You’re tired of living in fear.
Get up and start making a difference!
You may be reading this and thinking that it is not a good idea to keep moving forward. You may have a point. In fact, you may even be right in some ways. But to just give up without even trying to make things better would be such a shame.
Think about it. If you do nothing at all, then you are helping the bad guys win. And they don’t need your help either. They are winning already as we speak.
The choice is yours.

Keep Moving Forward: Knowing When to Run, Walk, or Crawl Things to think about before deciding what to do: 1) Do you have much time left?
If not, then it does not matter what you do because you will be dead soon anyway. 2)
Do the people around you support the current movement? 3) Do you like what is happening around you?
Just look around you.
Some of our greatest leaders have been brought down by cowards. But those same leaders have also been brought down by those who dared to dream and to stand up for what they believed in. Do not be a coward. Be a leader!
Dare to make a difference!
So, how do you keep moving forward in such dark times? How do you dare to make a difference when it all seems so hopeless?
4) Do you support the current movement? 5) Are you safe where you are right now? 6) Are the people close to you safe?
If you have little time left and your loved ones are in danger, then it may be best…
One step at a time.
It all begins with one step. You do not need to see the whole staircase, just take one step at a time.
You may not know what lies ahead, but you do know that you must move forward from where you are right now. So just keep on moving. Do not stand still and be silent. Take a stand and keep moving forward.
Yes, there will be obstacles in your way. But you can overcome them if you try hard enough and never give up.
Nobody said it would be easy. But then nobody said it would be this hard either. The point is, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And if you keep on pushing forward, then eventually you will make it to the top.
So keep climbing that mountain. Keep moving forward.
Some people enjoy the thrill of going downhill on a mountain biking trail or skiing down a mountain. But those same people get nervous and sometimes scared when it comes time to climb that same mountain.
Why do that if the main idea is to have fun?
The challenge of climbing a mountain is not easy. But once you get to the top and see all the beauty that you just opened up to yourself, it is totally worth it.
Yes, there are obstacles in your way right now. But each one of them can be overcome. That is great if that is what you like to do. But if you fall, it can be fatal.
It is way too easy to get hurt and the recovery time can be much longer.
I am not saying that your life is at stake here. But it still holds true. Going downhill can be fun and all, but only after you have gone uphill first. You climb up the mountain first.
Only then are you allowed to go downhill. You just have to want it bad enough and keep on moving forward no matter what.
So what are you waiting for?
Go climb that mountain!

It is that simple. Pick an obstacle, any obstacle and just start climbing, or digging, or swimming, or running. It does not matter what you do first. But you must pick something and start doing it. Otherwise you will never make it past the bottom of the mountain. And if you stay down there too long, you will never want to go back up again. So get going already and choose an obstacle to overcome.
Life is full of choices.

There Will Be Blood! I don’t know if it is just me or what, but it seems like nowadays everybody and their mom has a blog. And I am not talking about the cool blogs…
It may seem like a lot at times, but they really are not that many. Everyone has the same amount. What matters most is how you use them and what you do with them. It is simple really.
1) You can sit on your butt and do nothing.
2) You can just stand there and scream about all the obstacles in your way.
3) You can pick an obstacle and start climbing, digging, swimming or running to get past it.
‘Tis The Season For Giving. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la..
You can’t have it all right now.
So you don’t like where you are at right now. That is too bad. But the truth is, you can’t have it all right now. Nobody gets to live their life without any obstacles in their way.
So if you want to achieve something, anything at all, then it is going to require some sort of sacrifice or compromise on your part.
There is no such thing as a free lunch.
This is life.

Do The Right Thing Doing the right thing isn’t always easy or convenient, but it should be done regardless. The problem nowadays is that too many people have their own agendas and are only looking out for themselves and if others get hurt along the way or the law gets broken in the process, then it’s all just “part of the game.” But you’re not one of those people and you never will be. You were brought up to do the right thing even when no one is watching, because that’s what decent human beings are supposed to do.
You have a strong sense of moral integrity and will never succumb to the whims of immoral self-serving behavior.
You have decided to…
Mug The Old Man You may be desperate for money right now, but you’re not going to resort to common robbery to get it. No, you’re going to hold up in this dusty old building until the coast is clear, then make your way back home as best you can.
You take the back streets and alleyways until you reach the dilapidated building you’ve been using as a hideout since the police began their crackdown on crime. You’re sure no one saw you, but just to be safe, you remain hunkered down in your hiding place for the rest of the night.
You sleep a few hours on the dirty floor with only a couple pieces of rotting furniture for company. As soon as it turns daylight, you venture out into the streets.
The police are still keeping a steady eye on the more notorious neighborhoods and places of criminal activity, so you stay out of sight for the most part. Eventually, you make it back home without any problems.
Since the heat is still on you from the other night, you don’t want to risk going out again just yet, so you decide to lay low for a while. You spend your time catching up on some much needed rest and some light reading.
Surprisingly, you manage to put the whole incident out of your mind for awhile. That is, until someone comes knocking at the door…
You Have Died By Proxy You killed a man in cold blood and now you have to pay the price.
Was it worth it? Did you get away with the money? What happened afterwards?
How did you die?
