Roll With The Punches

Sometimes You Have To Roll With Life's Punches

Roll With The Punches

Life likes to throw things at people everyday. Life will throw both good and bad things at people, and usually those things are unexpected. The important thing is how people react. People can see this as an opportunity to break down, give up, and consider this as their life coming to end; people can see this as an opportunity to grow, keep going, and roll with the punches as well. When you roll with the punches you look life in the face and tell it that nothing it throws it you will force you to give up and quit. When you roll with the punches you keep going when it gets tough and never stop going. Rolling with the punches may sound like one of the hardest things in the world, and it may feel like it when you’re facing some of life's toughest moments, but rolling with the punches is what will get you through life's toughest moments and bring you out as a stronger and better person. The growth a person gains from rolling with the punches is some of the most important growth they will ever gain. One of the easiest things a person can do in life is quit. Quitting takes away the difficulty and allows people to take the easy way out. But what is accomplishing when quitting takes place? What can people gain from quitting? Nothing is gained nor learned from quitting. When a person rolls with the punches and keeps going, they learn a lot about what they actually are capable of and learn a lot about themselves. True strength is not giving up when that seems like the only option, true strength is not letting the hardest things a person faces overcome them, true strength is looking life in the face and telling it that you aren't giving up. True strength is rolling with the punches and continuing on.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
