Who says what?

According to the Urban dictionary the terms “Cowboy up” meant when things are getting tough you have to get back up, dust yourself off and keep trying.

The saying they like best was let's all cowboy up and get this job finished!

Urban dictionary?

In addition the following terms were supposed to be synonyms:

I don’t know about the world these days. I remember the old philosopher saying never give up, never give up, that ship, back in my day. I suppose “Cowboy up!” could mean the same thing.

Save a horse!

So what does this all have to do with cowboys? I opened a snap button shirt store on the first day of this year and have been having fun finding wholesalers that will sell to me, so I can sell shirts to you and maybe make a little bit of money as well. I emphasize a little bit because I am offering discounts unheard of by anyone in their right mind. I guess that says a lot about me, eh?

Today I went out to Save Haven Horse Rescue and enjoyed visiting with the horses and the owner of the property. We’ve decided to give 5% of all our proceeds of our net coming in to Linda Richards. Her facebook page is safehavenhorserescue and they do keep old horses from becoming dog food and keep everyone happy with horses and horsing around.

Buddy the horse

See what a little care can do.  NEVER GIVE UP!
See what a little care can do. NEVER GIVE UP!

You can make a difference!

I read in the news today the country is having trouble with “ISIS”; Our world is suffering from over population and climate change; and the poor are getting poorer while the rich are getting richer. If you are not one of the rich then I think it’s probably time to ‘Cowboy up”.

Always remember whoever you are, and whatever your situation in life is, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! The secret is to just do whatever you think you need to do. You can dream; create a vision; or just think about it, but nothing happens until there's action. Cowboy up!
