Remember that Pat Benatar song, ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ the second single off the album Crime of Passion from 1980?

At the time she sang this hit making 1980’s awesome song, I’m almost certain she was talking about a guy being an asshole to her, and Pat Benatar getting right back up and giving him shit right back, moving on to another guy and starting over again. I loved, (still do) this song, and did not take crap from anyone way back when I was much younger, carefree and gave crap to anybody who stepped over the line. Benatar was obviously talking about getting knocked down and getting back up and coming back at life with a vengeance.

Living life teaches us a lot as we get older. It just depends how we handle it and deal with it. We can either be pissed off and whine about it or we can get back up fighting or we choose option three–which I’m working at, but I am trying ever so desperately to do—live life to the fullest each day , like it is your last day. Get an attitude of love each day. I do not want to waste any more time bitching and complaining about how lie has chewed me up and spit me out. What I want to do is choose the right path, which for me has changed from the ‘get the hell out of my way, bad attitude path to I love my life path.

My husband and I have had an entire world of crappy things happen to us, my MIL has had shitty things happen to her. Simply put, it depends on how we deal with these things and choose to live our lives. We can spend eternity arguing about politics, or we can live our lives doing this simple thing—enjoying each day, working towards a goal of making better lives.

But that doesn’t happen to everyone. Most people are smacked in the face with crap that hits them time and time again. And guess what, we have to make a decision to either lie down like and let life make us miserable or we have to make the decision of getting back up like Pat Benatar sings about in her song from 1980, ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’ and live life coming back swinging , live life loving every day or living life blaming everyone else for our problems.

I prefer to come back swinging , but now in a nice over the top happy way. Momzinga.com.
