Several pieces of writing blasted from the fingertips today – two blog posts (one in honor of Mother’s Day hence the title of the post and photo), a few dozen emails, thirty-plus LinkedIn updates – all while my head and sinuses pounded down on me like a freight train. But no matter what, I kept going. No rest for the weary ya know. Getting too comfortable sitting on the sidelines means you’ll never get in the game. No, for me I could be in a full body cast and I’d still figure out a way to get shit done. Apologies for the language, there was just no better way to express it.

Today I created perseverance in spite of obstacles, focus in spite of distractions, loyalty in spite of disrespect, and most of all dedication in spite of apathy.
