Daily Dose: On Determination

“Being defeated is often temporary, giving up makes it permanent.”
My Interpretation: I was injured during my last deployment. I spent months going through physical therapy and rehab and there were so many days that I just wanted to give up and stay in bed. PT was too painful and it was too much work with not a lot of progress being made. It was with the help of my family, friends and inspirational stories and quotes that kept me going. Giving up isn't an option. Keep going because being defeated is temporary. Only you can make it permanent.
