Use your bruises. I know it doesn’t feel like it, but ultimately, they are there to guide you. And most importantly, they come with a gift.
Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,
I have viewed life with a new perspective.
That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.
I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.
I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.
I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.
I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.
But it most certainly will.
And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.
Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:
To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.
I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.
To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.
That is the vision for my life and for this blog.
Thank you for your support.
Prior to this weekend you felt your season was near perfect and you were ready to submit it for a final grade.
I love to read the same book in different formats
Thank you Universe for stepping in when I am out of gas.
No matter what you say, no matter what you do,
no matter if you use fear or praise to motivate,
your words, actions, and concern fall on deaf ears when someone is in a semi-slide.
There is a possibility, heck, maybe even a probability, that you will give everything you have and not get the reward you sought after. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing.
Everything worth achieving will have trials and tribulations attached, dark moments of doubts that will push you to the edge of your beliefs where you must decide whether to endure or quit.
Wrestling is Life
Pain is painful.
It is also necessary.
Pain is a motivator for one to act.
Pain is the stimulus of change, improvement, and correction.
I have been getting inquiries recently about working with individual wrestlers to help them achieve their post-season goals by helping them improve their mental approach to wrestling and to life. I love doing this. It is my passion.
