----------
"It’s not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but rather the most adaptive to change." – Charles Darwin

There’s a reason why we are still here on Earth, no less, the dominant creature.
We adapt.

Yet the very thing that pushed us to where we are today, we find ourselves running from. Avoiding. Making excuses not to embrace, sometimes without even us being aware that it’s happening.

But think about it. This didn’t happen by accident. We didn’t get here by chance. We *thrive* in an environment that changes. It makes us better. We get knocked down, flat on our face, embarrassing enough… but come back up stronger. We learned. And it happens again. And we come back stronger, *again*.

Because we don’t have a massive predator chasing us down every day, we have the luxury to lie dormant. To push away change. But this is a dangerous, horrible pitfall that is all too enticing. We know what challenge, adversity, and healthy stress brings.

A better version of ourselves.

When we find ourselves struggling today, take a step back. Realize for just a moment, in the ucomfortable mess that we are in, that this is us… getting better. If we can re-wire ourselves to embrace those sweaty, painful, often embarrassing moments… who knows where we can go.

If we don’t, we know exactly where we’ll be tomorrow.
Exactly where we are today.
Hell no.
Let’s keep moving.
