day 1820 – hard questions


once in a while some questions come up i either don’t know how to answer, shouldn’t answer or don’t want to answer. noticeable that i’ve pulled myself out of involvements in the world of taekwondo. i no longer teach or attend poomsae trainings, took break from competitions, skip demos, and avoided going to main school. all i do is run my branch school and keep making improvements. now when asked if i’ll resume my commitments and return to the competition floor, it’s really hard to say if i still have it in me and i have the heart to make a comeback

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

twenties series: [ten] values

i am a very stubborn individual, many people can justify that, but i am glad i am. i would never give up in what i believe in and would never give up what i love doing. what would life be without passion?? all i know is without passion, life is nothing but bland and worthless. no matter how many haters out there disapproving my decisions and love, sports is something i would not go without. people around me needs to compromise and understand what sports means to me in the grand scheme of things. i don’t know how many times i have said this, but if i have to give up and quit what i consider the most valuable things in life, what is the purpose of being alive?? i learn to set priorities and values straight and know that tennis, taekwondo, dodgeball, skiing are amongst all the activities i am addicted to. until i decide the time is right to taper down, i will pursue all that my heart desires; meaning i will continue to compete and aim at podium finishes at various competitions, hit tennis balls on the hardcourt without hesitation, play my game of dodgeball and shred the gnar with my skiing gear. and of course not to overlook that sports doesn’t make up my entire life. my family and friends are a great asset and a big part of my life for all unconditional love and support i receive from each and every one of them. special shoutouts to my parents because without them, there is no me, they gave me everything i have and got me to where i am now
