I recently started watching “Red Band Society”; don’t worry no spoilers in this post.(maybe a little) The drama series is about a bunch of kids with different aliments living together in a hospital under the pediatric wing. The interaction between these kids and how their lives have become so much more than just what they originally thought their lives would become. Each patience has a different story to tell through each step of their daily lives. Each of these patients gets treated, however; the nurses and the doctors that treat them also get treated by them. They teach them different life lessons. Each episode has a very strong heart felt meaning behind it.
On one of the episodes a character by the name of Leo Roth said something that resonated with me. “Every morning, you get out of bed, put two feet on the ground, and stand up Like it’s easy, like it’s nothing.
You put your pants on one leg at a time.
I mean, it’s such a basic concept it’s literally an expression.”
We don’t realize the simple things in life can effect us and change how we live. Don’t let everyday be the same as the last. Use that day to have an adventure, tell that person your care about how you truly feel about them, start goal, say whats been on your mind, walk up to that person you’ve want to talk to but were afraid, or forgive the one that hurt you. Whatever it may be don’t wait till tomorrow to do it. There might not be a tomorrow and remember don’t take things for granted.
Recently a few friends of mine have been giving me suggestion on what topics to write about. The latest is “write about the qualities you wish you had or who you could be more like if you could.” After pondering for a few ideas I came up with one that stands out.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
For those of you who are living under a rock… no pun intended; let me give you some background on who this man is.
His wrestling blood traces back to his grandfather, but spreads long and wide from uncles to cousins. Dwayne started football at a young age and then wrestling training in 1995. But The Rocks career doesn’t end there his ventured in multiple movies, his most famous “Fast and Furious” series/franchise. Not only has he done movies but he has also done TV shows like “The Hero”
So why Johnson?
Dwayne has this drive about him that puts him in a mind set of anything is possible and not to be discourage because failing or not succeeding the first time you attempt something. Coming from a fans’ stand point and looking into his star struck life he is very humble and even having a action based background it seems like he is a 6ft 5in 250+lbs teddy bear. The intensity under his lift eyebrow screams FOCUS. His determination to best the best at whatever his doing shines through. Dedication drives him to succeed and becoming the person he is today. “Success isn’t always about ‘greatness’. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work gains success. Greatness will come.” – Dwyane Johnson.
The originally question “write about the qualities you wish you had or who you could be more like if you could.” ; those qualities are some I wish I had however being who I am and the qualities I posses may not be perfect or the best yet they’re mine and they make me, me. Don’t lose sight of who you are or what makes you, you. Your love ones see for who you are and they like you for it. There are going to be those who don’t like you,, but don’t try to please them. Be you in-spite of them. You are important and special and keep being you. Even when the road gets hard and you feel like quiting…
“Only when a hero is at his lowest can he become the greatest. That to me is the greatest super hero story of all time.” –
