"> Shout out Tuesday... - Julie Cross

Shout out Tuesday…

Today I want to do a shout out to all of those people flying under the radar…

We so readily give applause and recognition to the big comebacks (and I am not saying they don’t deserve it), you know the people that lost the 30 kilos in weight, the people that came back from being on the brink financially… and we love an underdog coming from the bottom to win the match.
And then of course, the big wins in business, the entrepreneurs and the big money makers… And I love and recognise all of that too…

However this recognition is for those that consistently apply daily discipline with no need for the recognition, the fame of the instagram and FB likes… like this couple here in this photo. Everyday they are on the beach, no matter the weather, every day they do their daily Tai chi and stretching, working out the body and the mind… every day they do the swim up and down, staying fit and strong… they will never get the applause for losing the 30 kilo’s because they would never allow themselves to gain the 30 kilo’s so I applaud them today. They would not ‘instagramming’ daily how they got up and did some exercise, they don’t do it for that… they simply do it because it is good for them and their body and minds…

And to all the people at work, at a job they may not give you fame, standing ovations and applause… but you do it and you do it well because it is your work, it is important work and it is the work you have chosen and are paid to do, so you do it well… so today I applaud you too… the street sweepers, the garbage truck drivers, the dishwashers, the bricklayers etc etc … yes, today I congratulate you… never underestimate the value of what you do everyday contributing to the community around you…

So, yes today it is to all the people who are simply applying daily discipline to do what needs to be done and doing it well, just because it is the ‘right’ thing to do. x
