I finally got around to skimming through the Oscars on my DVR tonight, since I pretty much slept through it on my couch last night (after an awesome and exhausting retreat weekend) and loved this quote by Ben Affleck at the end of his Best Picture (for Argo) acceptance speech:
“You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. You can’t hold grudges, it’s hard, but you can’t hold grudges. And it doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life, cuz that’s gonna happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up.”
I really appreciate Ben’s words and echo his sentiments at this stage of my life, being on the cusp of turning 38 (in nine days).
I hope that whenever and wherever this post finds you that you take Ben’s words to heart, as I have, and that they bring you inspiration and motivation for your journey.
