Thursday Inspiration

Submitted by moredamnsound on September 25th, 2014 at 1:26 PM

I was so excited for this season. I honestly thought that we would be okay. I was wrong. That's fine, I always try to find the positive in things, so here's some inspiration for the day.

Fall down seven times, stand up eight. You've probably heard this. It's been circulating amongst the more annoying of your Facebook friends. You know what always bothers me? If you fall down seven times, then you should only need to stand up seven times. Unless they're counting the initial time you stood up before you fell down. Even that assumes that you were down before whatever trial you faced, which is a pretty pessimistic view if you ask me.

Alright, that wasn't very inspirational, but you know what? Sometimes life throws you a curveball. Sometimes you're not good at hitting curveballs, maybe because you quit playing baseball before anyone really started throwing breaking balls. And sometimes you just end up getting lost in a baseball analogy that doesn't really make sense. 

But that's okay, because lemons! Yes, lemons are an easier analogy. Sometimes life hands you lemons. What do you do? That's right, you make lemonade. But you can only drink so much lemonade, so you sell the rest at the makeshift lemonade stand you made in your front lawn. It turns out that people aren't buying as much lemonade as you would have wanted, so you throw in a pair of Michigan football tickets with every purchase to sweeten the deal. 

God fucking dammit. 

Regardless of how pissed I am at how bad things are going, it's football season and I'm going to cheer for this team.
