If you follow my social media or get my weekly emails, you’ll know my mantra is,
Wake Up, Choose Violence.
I live by this.
Now I obviously don’t mean you should choose actual physical violence.
I’m not condoning waking up and swinging punches first thing in the morning (unless you’re in a boxing ring of course).
