So, it's the end of summer. What does that mean? The county fair of course! And what's synonymous with the fair? Well, right, lots of things, but around here the best part of the fair (besides your yearly dose of elephant ears) is the demolition derby!
That's right: TOTAL DESTRUCTION!
So, I'm sitting in the bleachers watching these cars ram into one another for fun, and our whole section decides to cheer for this one particular driver. Why? Well, his car was the smallest out there. And he was giving the biggest hits. He was having a blast. He was losing his bumper, taking hits, and his car was bashed, beyond recognition, into a vehicle half its original size.
The one thing I kept thinking as I watched him go up against the big guys was that he wasn't giving up. He wasn't giving in. He wasn't letting intimidation rule or deter. And he was having a blast.
So, what have I learned from this great night of pure fun and entertainment in the form of bumper cars for adults?
Even if the odds are stacked against you, and you face fear, rejection, critique, or whatever life throws at you...
Never. Give. Up.
