I’m a big fan of the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I have not re-watched it in a while but there are lines and scenes seared within my brain. There are also take-home messages that fit many of life’s situations. One such message is that there are monsters amongst us that look just like us. They act like us. They pretend to be like us. But deep inside there is a monster within them. A monster who can rage, tear us apart, or work to break us down.
And as Buffy noted “I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about. And right now, you and I are gonna show ‘em why.”
That’s my motivational quote for the day. Get up. Stand up. Rise up against the monsters. Even if they are within us.
