going to bounce right back up.
Catchy. Humorous. True.
Secondly, back then and even today, people love the never-give-up, push through mentality. We love a trooper, a fighter, anything that symbolizes a type of toughness to weather the storms of life without throwing in the towel. It doesn't matter whether people see themselves as winners, people like to be a part of winning. That's why the fictional Batman and Superman characters have lasted for so long and the reason the Super Bowl is so huge.
People love winning and they love winners.
Those weebles wobbled, but they didn't fall down.
Isn't it amazing how such an inexpensive toy brought people so much joy? I'm thinking about buying at least one, myself. I think I will watch it for hours. I would think about a lot of things that would immediately come to mind. I can picture my thoughts already. I would see all the times I was knocked down and counted out, only to rise again. Yes, I would think of all my victories manifested through God. The only difference between me and that weebling Wobble is that it sometimes took awhile for me to bounce right back up from all the life events I experienced, but guess what?
I bounced back up. I'm standing now. I'm here. I'm helping people (I really believe that). I'm not going anywhere no time soon. I know my purpose. I know my mission. And I have my Lord and Savior, God, to thank for it all.
It was all worth it.
