fight of your life

Life is exciting, life is exhilarating, life is a fight – especially when you are down and out – when the biggest recession of any lifetime has hit you hard – has hit everyone hard.  Like millions everywhere – you have been laid off due to the covid virus recession – you are down to you last paycheck, you are waiting for unemployment payment relief, you have a limited supply of cash, you switch your healthcare to your spouse’s company because she still has a job (fingers crossed).  Your debt is rising, you have cut costs the best you can – you haven’t told the kids so they don’t freak out.  You are in the fight of your life – the biggest fight that you have ever been in – more than the great recession – more than all the various issues that you have fought through over your life and over the 20+ years of your marriage.  You just want to survive for now – you need to find a way to push through – to find work – to reinvent yourself – to do whatever it takes to make it through this fight.  You can do it – you have to do it – you can preserve the life that you have achieved – you can still hit your goals for the future.  This is what life is all about – fighting through these times to make it to the other side – intact and maybe even better than before.  You must wake up every day with a positive attitude – you must know that you are going to be OK – you must feel good about the future even though everything is crumbling around you.  You must get through this fight of your life – you will get through this fight of your life – this is the big one that has been waiting for you.  You will survive – you will thrive – you will be alive to look back and see that you won this fight.  You want that feeling in the future – so you must get out of bed, you must put one foot in front of the other, you must try everything possible to survive and succeed at surviving.  You will win this fight of your life, you will win.
