The death crawl

If there is one thing I have learned in life....It is that I am stronger than I know..
and the only way to find out how much I have in me..is to push till I can't push anymore..
and then push a little further.
We always stop before we look weak, don't we.
Before we feel pain.
Before it requires something..
Something more than we think we have.
The only time we grow is when we step into the abyss of the unkown.
Full of fear...
Full of uncertainty.
and we do it anyway.
Past the point of pain..
through tears.
Through the dark.
never quitting...pushing and pushing.
Then God takes off the blindfold and we find we are further than we thought.
We are in the end zone.
Don't quit.
Don't quit.
Don't quit.

I wasn't going to watch the clip because I hadn't seen the movie... didn't want to ruin it... blah blah blah. And then I thought, "She added this for a reason. Watch it." So, I did. I was crying like a big baby at the end. Good stuff!

I've seen the movie, and this particular section of the movie several times. It gets me every time!

Haven't seen the movie and something inside me tells me that I can't watch this video.

Excellent movie. I encouraged all my kids to be in sports. I didn't care if they were good at it, but learning to push your body teaches you that you are more capable than you ever realized.
