The ultimate test of a wrestler is to handle any outcome with grace.
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.

The uncontrollable parts cannot be controlled. The controllable parts can. Concentrate on controlling the controllable. For, it’s […]
It became my dream as a little boy to wear that singlet and when it became true it was the proudest moment of my life.
You set out to achieve greatness, and you have come up short.
You met your match.
You now realize that you gave it your all, and your all just wasn’t enough.
And it hurts.
It hurts badly.
To struggle and to understand.
Never the last without the first.
People will come in and out of your life like passengers traveling on a train.
Do, or do not. There is no try. Star Wars ________ Being able to execute in the big spot is a sign of a champion. Imagine going undefeated all season, 50-0 and then losing in the state finals to a wrestler with a record of 40-10. […]
