So, I've really been struggling with my "diet" (I hate that word) and exercise the past several weeks. The past several days I've been feeling particularly bad...pretty sorry for myself. When I was at the gym this afternoon, there was a show on ESPN...it was a story about this guy who was born with no arms. (NO ARMS!) His name is Ritchie and he works at this auto/auto parts manufacturer. He types on his computer with his feet. He really loves cars...they showed him washing, repairing his 1966 Chevy Impala...Using a blowtorch with his feet! It was incredible. The guy had such a great attitude and it seemed like there was nothing he couldn't do.
Of course I felt like the biggest douche in the universe. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with me. I have no obstacles. I have nothing to "overcome." I'm not an underdog. I'm just a lazy, whiny, selfish, BONEHEAD who was in desperate need of a reality check. I think it's safe to say I got one.
Well played, Universe. Well played.
