day 1899 – cloudkicks

it was definitely an eye opening and jaw dropping event at flightclub this evening. trickers came from all over north america including calgary, seattle, california, illinois and even hawaii. everyone who came to battle was showcasing how they could defy gravity with triples and quads. though i just went into the clinic to realign my back, i still forced it to attend class and then the special seminars held by loopkicks thereafter. seeing what can be done inspires me with what i can learn

shaping 2018

2017 was challenging that staggered between many emotions, some happy, some successful, some difficult, some burdensome and some heartbreaking moments. i was struck by my most depressing moments that resulted in bottling up emotions where self destruction happened. underneath the outer shell, was three hundred and sixty five days of constant battle that left many unseen scars. after this three hundred sixty five day battle, i came to realize i had ample growth: grew stronger, became braver, gained experience and expanded my knowledge. the struggles gave me a different perspective in life, the achievements gave me hope to to continue to climb. life is a journey defined by how well one copes after being knocked down. looking forward into the next twelve months, i’ll regroup and pull myself together to find my strong. i’m a fighter and won’t stop short of reaching my goal. as long as i stay strong, keep grinding and never settle for less than my full potential. life is about betterment and i’m committed to being the strongest version of myself

the latter part of 2017 wasn’t the best of days and was a true test of patience. the long drought, the fluctuating health, the seesawing emotions were all big obstacles, but i made sure all loose ends were closed. waving 2017 goodbye knowing 2018 has much more for me in store

i’m ready to start 2018 off strong and be the stubborn goal digger that i am. just remember the best has yet to come

day 1314 – playoff scrums


starting the monday grind with overtime at work, a workout and dodgeball before my first ever playoff hockey game. i got into more scrums and battles because playoff hockey gets rougher. i received a good centering pass but very mad i put the puck over top of the net instead of in the back of the net. i can’t stop thinking about how i didn’t capitalize; it could have been the difference maker as we lost 3-2

building 2017

2016 was one heck of a crazy roller coaster ride. the past twelve months gave me ample opportunities to experience more of what life is about. i found myself in the darkest moments where i shut myself off from the world, fluctations and eating problems ensued. i managed to dig deep with the support of my close ones, and got myself back together. nothing came easy as nothing worth achieving ever comes easy. behind closed doors, i fought many battles that no one knew about, but the most important thing is i never gave up on myself. i came to realization that i don’t want to remain stagnant and don’t want to remain the same so i took on some challenges. i defined what my goals were and was proactive in taking the necessary steps to get myself there. through the hard times i gained a lot of knowledge and strength that no doubt made a better me. it made me realize i’m much stronger than i think i am and need to get even stronger to withstand. i’m much closer to where i want to be but i’m not where i want to be yet. i’m still working on becoming the best version of myself

finished 2016 on a high note and looking to build a strong 2017 with bigger and more ambitious goals. it’s time to take it up a notch or even two and fulfill whatever my heart desires

  • stay as healthy and as injury-free as possible
  • train smarter and eat properly with sufficient sleep
  • be more disciplined and focused towards my goals
  • continue to work on my confidence level
  • love myself for who i am
  • communicate more with family and friends
  • explore the world and expand my horizon
  • attain supplementary diploma
  • appreciate being a workaholic, but also appreciate the little things
  • save up for the number game
  • revisit photography
  • do more of what sets my heart on fire

i’m pumped to make the next twelve months the best months i’ve ever had. find my strong. it’s now or never

day 1218 – irregularities

image

i’ll get use to leaving the house when the sky is still pitch black. but it’ll take much more to adapt to sleeping earlier. stationary objects orbiting around me probably means something isn’t functioning properly. felt so faint for much of the day with a banging headache and stomachache. something is definitely wrong but i’m not sure what; i just know i don’t want to take drugs

day 1086 – bruce quote

image

thinking of something to get myself going again. this man says some very powerful things that i would like to live by day in day out. in bruce lee’s wise words, always be yourself, express yourself and have faith in yourself. it’s a tough stretch, but we have each other’s back to fight through all battles. sometimes a quiet and simple evening brings out the quality of our time and lightens up the mood. just remember tough times don’t last, tough people do

day 864 – troublemakers

i liked our playoff bracket and our chances heading in. it wasn’t the results we were hoping for but nothing to hang our heads upon. some of us were battling a cold and some of us were gimped, and given the circumstances i’d say we tried our best. we had two good series, one hard fought series and another i’d like to take back. but even if we made it any further, i felt my elbow was done after the third series even though i had a kinesiologist tape me up. something is noticeably wrong with my hand but i don’t recall what exactly happened. keeping it loose during the pre game team huddle, i am still proud of how troublemakers handled the season finale today
