day 2504 – after class fronts

this week covers one of the move i really want – cart front. i was tired from the heavy squats earlier in the morning, but i really wanted to keep practicing after class. the coach came up to watch, but was displeased with what he saw and how i was drilling it. i felt bad because i let him down; he had every right to be angryhe grilled me until i could do it with the proper technique he wanted and sometimes being pushed hard is what makes me dig deeper. i really do appreciate that he spent time after hours helping me out with a move i really wanted. he’s also the one that doesn’t give a crap about my self confidence. i know i can handle it, but it’s also demoralizing

day 1747 – spirit owl

hootie the spirit owl is once again in the hands of gstrings. we are well on our way to defend our third eastside craft house gift card. this playoff, we have a good chance at the title and i had set my eyes on the tier five wrench. things didn’t unfold the way we wanted to; we started off on the wrong foot and got swept on our first series. we dug deep, rallied as a team and made it a lengthy playoff. we clawed back series after series and made it one game short of going through the back door finals. though i’m disappointed we didn’t come out as champs, we certainly fought like one. i’m proud of these ladies for not giving in when we easily could have called it quits. this officially closes the books for season twenty five, a comeback season for me

day 1060 – transpire

sixteen timezones apart, no problem; a hundred timezones apart, still no problem. good friends keeping me afloat on this one because they will understand even when they don’t understand. she tells me you have to take their downs if you want to be a part of their ups; sometimes you fall because there’s something that you’re suppose to find. what i am searching for?? how deep do i have to dig?? that’s something i must find for myself

day 251 – dig deep

shutting myself off from the world and staying away from places that created all the frustration and uncertainties. taking all the bashing and fustigation and putting into perspective and using that to ignite the fight in me. trying to clear up my mind, refresh my soul and reenergize myself to continue moving forward in the path i have chosen. recognizing the only option i have is to dig deep and persevere, is the words of a good friend of mine
