my journey at a glance

a look back at my taekwondo journey from the very beginning, snapshots capturing all the memories and special moments through it all. i am appreciative of all the people i have met along the way, the instructors and students who have shaped and built my┬ácharacter to make me the person i am today. i cherish very moment that i shared with fellow teammates and instructors and could never have asked for anything more. training for the nationals day in and day out, everyday for the entire month, early mornings and late nights was one of the highlights of this journey and i wouldn’t have it otherwise. i started my journey not knowing how far i would be able to go and where i would end up. little did i know i would make it to become a blackbelt with heart and soul, to be an instructor mentoring others, to have competed in numerous provincial competitions, to have competed at the grandest stage i could ask for – the nationals. injuries have plagued me throughout but i have yet to give up on a dream to be a better me. time after time my knee has disappointed me and i have ran out of possible reasons why it keeps failing me. all i want to do is get better and get back to it. i am proud of all the accomplishments and challenges overcomed to get to this point but i am not satisfied with letting go because there is so much more waiting for me. nothing beats getting healthy again and training with you all, for the next nationals and everything beyond. don’t take me away from this, don’t let this be the end, i am not ready to give up what i have fought for and what we have created

day 375 – making personal best

image

a day i made an important personal best which i never would have imagined being able to do a few months back. definitely fulfilling walking out of there on a sunny sunday afternoon and i am certain as long as i work at it, there will be many more new personal bests along with a lot of fulfilling trips home. just knowing that we can’t stay down forever, there will be better days ahead as long as you are willing to work for it
