The Israelites soldiers' predicament on Goliath's case:
He is too big to hit.
David's resolve on the same:
He is too big to miss!
How are you facing your giant today?

This is almost the same as the half-empty half-full principle.

" Life is filled with experiences, it's a journey for us to explore. If we don't explore all the paths, we might regret it. If we do, someone can get hurt but we have to keep ourselves open and vulnerable to that. If we didn't get hurt in life, we wouldn't grow and learn; we wouldn't progress on to a new level, a new path, a new journey. However, if we take the path that we're unsure of and break through our comfort levels we could experience joy, ecstasy and things that we never believed possible. Enjoy life. Do what makes you happy."

I just wrote this to a friend and figured I should share it because it may help someone to break out of their comfort zone.

Just Keep Flying

I promise to push myself.
I promise to try.
I'll always let go,
So I can just fly.

I've got it no doubt,
But when I show it
There's no need to brag, to shout.

I will never give up.
Never stop trying, stop flying,
Or be knocked down, like a little cup.

I'll just go for it,
Because I'd never know,
What I could do,
If I didn't let go.

It's not how well I do,
It's that I can say,
You know what?
I did my best today.

I wrote this mostly for myself. But when I shared it with my English class and teacher, everyone came back and told me how it was such a great philosophy on life. For me, it was about challenging myself. What does it mean to you?

" The true heart of a man is unknown until he's tested in battle."
Written in 2007 by Jason Hays --- Washington
I wrote this to say that you can't tell your true capabilities until you've been tested in life. You can see a man's true character when he is in the fire.

" It's okay to limit yourself but don't let anyone limit you."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Emily M. --- Michigan
I have a traumatic brain injury because I fell out of the back of a pickup truck going 50 miles an hour down a dirt road. I have been told I would never walk again and I'm finally up after 2 years and 6 surgeries. I'm not what they said I'd be - the doctors said I wouldn't make it or I would be brain dead and I never listened to them because I'm my own person. If they have nothing nice to say I DON'T CARE! No one can stop me from getting stronger; I'm a fighter!
