Live to Fight Another Day

When you feel immobilized, you can employ catchphrases that spur you on to action.

Published

on

All our lives, we are subject to highs and lows, in 2020 and 2021 in particular! Things are going well, happiness ensues, and we’re not conscious of the time. Things are not going so well, and time slows down. Sometimes it’s hard to find a friend. It can be hard to know what to do next.

What Can I Handle?

Throughout my adult life, when I feel immobilized, I employ catchphrases that spur me on to action. One of these key phrases is, “Live to fight another day.” What does the statement mean? Certainly it has nothing to do with physical combat. It denotes that if nothing seems to be going well, and I’m in a quandary, I look for what I can handle and can complete in the present.

Suppose I’m feeling lonely or overwhelmed, or simply have a lack of clarity. I say to myself, “Live to fight another day,” which implies: I don’t have to necessarily deal with any of those obstacles at the moment, as long as I take care of items that need to be handled. This approach is an antidote to fretting about my current turmoil.

Around the house or around my office, when I complete needed tasks, I feel less overwhelmed and less encumbered by whatever has been weighing on me heavily, whether or not I have attained clarity. At least, I have finished these other tasks.

Sunday Afternoon

Suppose it’s a Sunday afternoon, and nothing seems to be going well; I feel as if the world is passing me by, and experience a “dead space” in the middle of the day. I rally myself by thinking, “Live to fight another day.” I then look around the house for all the items that need to be tackled.

Are there dishes in the sink? Does the living room need cleaning? Does the front porch require sweeping? Is anything left undone in the backyard? Alternatively, I’ll handle accumulated email correspondence, surf web sites that I’ve been intending to visit, or undertake reading that I’ve saved for the proverbial rainy day.

Following the rallying cry, “Live to fight another day,” as soon as I engage in one or more of the above activities, I feel better. Once such tasks are completed, maybe I’ll emerge from my mental or emotional rut. Perhaps not. In any case, I’ve created a clearing for myself because the items I have completed do count for something.

Next, I could call a friend, see a movie, take a walk, open a book, watch a show, cook a dish, or do something that represents a next step. On other days, and at other times, other opportunities will unfold.

For now, I’m doing what I can, and that’s fine.

The Post That Made Facebook Threaten One of America’s Top Motivational Speakers

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad.

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad. Check out PolitiCrossing Founder and motivational speaker Chris Widener’s post that earned him the threat:

If Covid was so deadly, would Democrat politicians get caught without their masks dining at French Laundry? Or going maskless in their private jet terminals? Or at the ball games they attend? Would they really risk their very lives?

If the seas were really going to rise from global warming would Obama really own thirty million dollars of beach front properties?

If this is so deadly, would they allow us to pack hundreds of people into an airplane eighteen inches from each other (yet require you to “social distance” while you get off the plane)? Would they allow thousands of people to use the same touch screen to check in in airports like I just did ten minutes ago?

You have been fooled my friends. Look at what they do, not at what they say. The biggest scams in human history are being pulled on us and half our country goes along with it because they have no discernment of right and wrong or truth and error. And worse, when you call them on their BS, they act indignant and curse and belittle you.

Why would they keep virologists from the best schools in America from getting their message out that this is a scam? Why would they keep you from using medications that have been around and safely used for decades?

We simply cannot continue to allow these shysters to harangue us into complicity. I for one will continue to fight until my dying day for truth against duplicitous manipulation.

If someone told a crowd of 1000 people that they have to shut down their businesses and stay home from school and wear masks or else ONE of those 1000 people would die in the next year, would you do it? Of course not. That’s the math, and only if you believe all the reported cases of death by Covid were actually true but of course we know that many deaths were categorized as Covid deaths but weren’t.

And yet that is exactly what we have done.

Why would they roll out a vaccine that doesn’t even keep you from getting Covid and has tons of side effects and roll out national marketing campaigns to pressure everyone to get it?

What’s really going on here?

It is time to put on your thinking caps, my friends. Just because someone in authority says something is true doesn’t make it so.

BREAKING: TikTok BANS PragerU

TikTok has permanently banned PragerU from its platform for “multiple violations” of its community guidelines.

Published

PragerU has just released the following to their email subscribers:

“Dear PragerU Supporter,

TikTok has permanently banned PragerU from its platform for “multiple violations” of its community guidelines.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: ‘Progressives’ are Wannabe Totalitarians

The tech giant removed PragerU’s account altogether—giving us no way to appeal the decision! We can’t even view the content that was supposedly in violation of TikTok’s policies!

This is blatant censorship.

TikTok is a platform most frequently used by young people, primarily those under the age of 18, to share video content. This is a vital age group being brainwashed by the left that we must reach.

PragerU’s TikTok page simply shared videos about American values using young influencers to convey those ideas. Our page was reaching millions of young people.

TikTok does not want young people, especially Gen Z, exposed to conservative ideas.

Because PragerU’s page was effectively influencing millions of young people, they banned us. To make matters worse, TikTok gave PragerU zero recourse—no reasons were given and there is no one to contact.”

As you can see, BIG TECH continues its war against conservatives. Let’s help PragerU fight back by contributing to them. Did you know that they are a non-profit. They have helped us, so now let’s help them! You can contribute right here.
