The Junk Addicts Unite Giveaway: The Boxing Gloves
So, what’s with the boxing gloves?
I joked often about fighting, bringing your best fight face and brawling at the thrift shop.
But really, “the fight” is so much more than that.
It’s about the reasons behind why you must rescue that piece of junk, complete that project, protect your ideas, keep your focus. It’s about believing in what you’re doing and the reasons why you’re doing it- maybe your vision has to do with that one project or a series of them, maybe you want to quit your day job and start a business, maybe you want to be a vendor at a market or sell online, maybe you want a blog or website, maybe you want to write a book or have a little shop, maybe you want to start an entire movement.
Whatever our hopes and dreams are, we fight for them because we know that it is just a matter of time before those hopes and dreams become our reality. It’s called vision, your vision, and we fight fiercely to protect it from others and from our own self doubt and we will keep on fighting for it until there is no more fighting to do.
The boxing gloves represent everything that you should be proud of, no matter where you are in your particular fight.
I, for one, want to have seven t-shirts for every day of the week because, I, too, have fought many a good fight– against other doubters and the hardest battle of all, against myself.
At the very beginning of it all, I sat alone on a roof top of an abandoned old house taking a break from salvaging and let the self-doubt creep in: “What am I doing?!” I questioned myself. “Stop it!“ I said as an answer. “You know what you are doing. You might not know exactly where you are going BUT you know exactly what you are doing.” I just knew that I was on to something and it didn’t matter what anyone else thought. It was my vision and although it was a bit murky at that moment, I was going to fight for it. No matter what.
