“He broke things in me that never healed.  You gotta ask yourself, “What’s the important stuff?”  What are you fighting for?”

–     Sylvester Stallone, as Rocky Balboa in Creed II

We didn’t see this one in the theater so we watched it last night.  As predictable as every other in the series, and almost as good.  Worth the investment of time.

We will all have our Ivan Drago‘s.  We’ll all have people who either intentionally or subconsciously seek to harm us or our families.  We’ll work for people who don’t get it, or we’ll be the people that don’t get it.  In the case of those who wronged us, intentionally or otherwise, any vindictiveness, retaliatory thoughts or plotting or revenge-motivated ideas are a waste.  Of.  Time.  That’s not the important stuff.  What comes next, what we do next is important.  It keeps us focused on our family, our friends, our Blessings and our comparatively pretty excellent life.

Yeah, when we focus on the important stuff, it keeps us aware of what we’re fighting for, or whether there’s really a fight involved at all.

The Eldest of The Three gave me this book for Christmas.  It’s a pretty good way to forgive our Drago’s, fight the good fight and make a difference.

(By the way, Dolph Lundgren has aged much better than Brigitte Nielsen.  Just sayin’…)
