BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE

BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE

*Originally Published August, 2017

He fought every fight in his head before he ever hit the ice.
He knew their moves and how he would counter.
He prepared his hands, his shoulders, his knees.
He never fought angry.

Every move, every swing, was carefully calculated. Each hit was effective and full of rage, or so it seemed. But again, he never fought angry. He purposely conditioned his body a specific way to prepare and be able to deliver the most impactful hit possible (it doesn’t hurt that his hands are the size of a gorilla’s).

I’ve heard every story. We’ve watched the videos, and he remembers EVERY fight in detail. He can replay you the conversations he had with the guy he fought after the game. He can tell you what they said, about their family, about their friendship.

There is no arrogance in the conversation. There is no puffing his chest out and talking about how he was the best in the league. Those are words that you will NEVER hear come out of his mouth. It was never about that to him. Continue reading “BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE”

I Choose You

I Choose You

“I choose you”. A friend and I were having a conversation today and this came up and it instantly became so apparent to me that people do not put enough emphasis on that statement.

Sure we love each other and that’s great and it can be powerful but what about the fact that you CHOOSE that person?

I don’t know about you, but to me that almost holds more precedence than saying I love you. In romantic relationships I don’t think you can have the commitment of “I choose you” without the foundation of “I love you” but I do believe that you can have the “ I love you” without the choosing.

The World I’ve Created

The World I’ve Created

I just have to say, this world I’ve created and the people I have surrounding me, it all fucking rocks!

One client sending me a screenshot of their featured article in a nationally published magazine.

One client diving in head first, following their passion, and launching a new division to their already amazing business.

Another client taking on a brand new campaign that ironically is PERFECT for her and the first thing she’s been excited about in a long time. Continue reading “The World I’ve Created”

Magic

Magic

Sometimes I have uncontrollable tears rolling down my face when I write my reality (a journaling process you’ve probably heard me talk about before).

I feel it so deep in my soul that I burst into tears. Continue reading “Magic”

Attention

“YOU DIDN’T JUST WANT ATTENTION! YOU WERE JUST BEING YOU!”

I was having a conversation with a long time friend who’s on his own journey of self-reflection and growth. A friend who is learning to get real with himself and turn shit around in his life.

After talking about the realizations he’s been having regarding his own experiences and things that he used to assume or misunderstand he blurted out, “I USED TO THINK YOU JUST WANTED ATTENTION!”

I was like, “Wait, what?” Continue reading “Attention”

We All Need A Reminder

We All Need A Reminder

Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that it’s all going to be worth it.

Even if no one else believes it.
Even if you feel like you’re in it alone.

Remind yourself it is YOUR life. YOUR dream.

No one else will ever build it for you.

And the quicker you realize that you have to count on only yourself to build this, the quicker you’ll start making progress. Continue reading “We All Need A Reminder”
