I just returned from a visit to my physical therapist and, let me tell you, I work hard. It’s still the torn rotator cuff, but I’m improving. As soon as I got home I took a couple of Ibuprofen to get a jump on the pain.

I can still accomplish tasks today, but I want to reach to those of you who work hard and share words of inspiration.

So, let’s do this. I’ve thrown in a quote from Winston Churchill, the man who inspired the people of England to keep on keeping on while the Germans dropped bombs over their cities.

William James, American philosopher and psychologist. 1842 – 1910

William James quote
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will create the fact. William James

Colin Powell, American statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army. 1937 –

Colin Powell quote
A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. Colin Powell

Winston Churchill, British Statesman and Prime Minister. 1874 – 1965

Winston Churchill quote
If you’re going through hell, keep going. Winston Churchill

Work hard, at least as best you can, torn rotator cuffs and such notwithstanding. Hope you have a productive day!

    Ouch, that must be so sore Ann Marie. Did you lift something heavy ? Hope it gets better soon and that you’re not in too much pain. Sending love from all the way down here in South Africa

      Michelle, the therapist told me I must have had a torn rotator cuff for a long while. I compensated by not using my shoulders. I just implemented tight hand movements. My doctor said it’s pretty common, especially among women. Thanks so much for your concern. I’ll finish up my therapy in a couple of weeks.
