day 915 – stacking it up

image
having a little faith in my ability and putting it to the test on unpadded surface. stacking up to seven plates on this night and successfully making it to the top unscathed. first attempt and first success is always deserving of a victory pose and casual step off. the first jump is always the hardest not because of the physical hurdle, but the mental one. not bad when i’m still nursing those messed up shins, but that hardly stops me much. i’ll be aiming higher next time and each time after that

day 458 – master cup

image

it feels different going to master cup as a coach instead of a competitor. i am not done competing yet but i have lost interest in competing at this provincial competition year after year. this is really the time for my team to travel to out of town events and get more exposure rather than competing in the same circle at the same level. having success at this level just isn’t giving us the satisfaction like it used to. this is the only way for us to grow and get to higher ground

day 446 – heading home

image

wrapping up my washington roadtrip with overall team success. can’t get home without paying the peace arch a little visit and of course getting through the long border wait. look forward heading farther down for the next one plus the rest on the list we are eyeing and it may be sooner than i know it. a lot of work and practice to be done if we are aiming for those bigger opens, don’t let it stop

better me

looking to set some new goals and make some much needed improvements. not happy with how things are at the moment and the current lifestyle is definitely not what i want to settle with. feels like i have become stagnant and need to pinpoint what is required to push past that threshold to get myself on the other side. on a quest to figure out what these changes may entail, but i am sure it will be a positive change to my lifestyle. working on a project where i will be the subject and main focus of the project for as long as i want to make progress

day 154 – onto a new year

i cant decide whether i should be happy that the year came to a close because time is passing by so quickly. truth is, 2013 has been a rather horrible year for me with many rough times, tough decisions, lost feelings and endless uncertainties. the start of another year is the start of something new. its time to make the changes, take chances and live the life i want. let’s make things happen and make 2014 an unforgettable year
