Musings By Pit Bull

Just some random thoughts...and if anyone can tell me who THEY are, I'd really appreciate it.

I am the one they call the pit bull.

I roll over the blades of grass we call life, like a lawnmower, not worrying if I run into an unusually tall stalk, or a snarl of weeds, waiting to stall my progress. But I also try to know my limitations. Do I really want to damage my sharp blades on a twig thrown unexpectedly in my path? Of course not. But then, I never seem to account for the pebbles; the tiny, almost unseen obstacles that when placed just right, could change things dramatically.

Who knew that something so small could alter my plans so much? I didn’t.

They say that if you’re tired, you should drink coffee.

The room spins at the thought and my head is too heavy to lift.

But I can’t handle that; those things that people are always saying – the quotes that always start with, “Well ya know what THEY say…” – I still don’t know who THEY are, but I can tell you that THEY went through an awful lot to gain the knowledge and insight to say all of the things we are constantly repeating today. So when THEY say, “Ignorance is bliss” or “That which does not kill you only makes you stronger”, THEY WERE right, ARE right, and will ALWAYS BE right.

As for me, it wasn’t until I actually had something big to handle that I realized it was true. That I really could get through tough situations…but it wouldn’t be easy…curses! THEY are right again.


The one thing THEY don’t let you in on is that there is always something to handle. It never ends, nor should it, and most importantly, you should never know what’s coming next. If THEY had let us in on that, and word got out, would we crumble before meeting and beating the challenge? Would we cease to surprise ourselves with our courage and tenacity? If that happened, we’d miss out on the greatest gift of all. Those challenges are how we grow and learn the most important lesson of all: Perspective.

Every life has obstacles, how we deal with them makes us who we are, or perhaps who we are relates to how we deal with the obstacles.
