It’s MURPHY’S Law

I once heard someone say something like, if someone has already said better let them say it.  So today that is what I’m going to do.  As I was running trails on the west side of Las Vegas I decided A Rock in Your Shoe needed a mission statement.  To be honest I don’t know what the purpose of a mission statement is, but none the less we shall have one.  What I decided on will probably be a bit wordy in regards to a mission statement.  I feel our new mission statement very clearly describes each person involved in this endeavor known as A Rock in Your Show.  I feel it also describes each and every person who laces up their shoes to venture into the great unknown. To give credit where credit is due, my entire mission statement is lifted from lyrics from the band Dropkick Murphy’s.     Without further ado:

Wake and pray, work all day
I Walk past the places I used to lay
Now I’m paying my way, I’m paying my way
Some days are hard, some days are long
Some days I’m weak, some days I’m strong
I’m paying my way, I’m paying my way

But my hopes are so much higher
Don’t count me out, I’m a survivor
I’ve chased these dreams down city streets
Dead-end roads that no one sees
And I’m proud to be a fighter

Don’t shut me out, don’t hold me down
I’m right here, I’ll be around
I’m paying my way, I’m paying my way

Some days are slow, some days fly by
Some days I laugh, some days I cry
When I look back and see your side
When I look hard into your eyes
When I take stock of what I’ve done
I think about how far I’ve come
And my hopes are so much higher
Don’t count me out, I’m a survivor

And I’m proud to be a fighter

As I copying my new mission statement I realized that I think this could be a mission statement for us all.  I think every person I grew up with, served with, worked with or have recently had the pleasure of getting dirty with can easily use these lyrics as their new mantra.  Days have been easy and others hard. Days we’ve laughed and days we’ve cried.  Days we feel like we can conquer the world and others we feel the weight of it is crushing us.  We all have dreams that seem impossible to others and maybe to ourselves.  We have all paved the way to where we are today and we have only done so by being survivor’s.  In the end whether your a soldier, a runner, a blogger, a entrepreneur, a stay at home wife, a farmer, a teacher or anything in between we all must be proud to be FIGHTER’S.
