hustling 2019

2019.jpg

2018 was demanding for it was intertwined with many accomplishments and disappointments that brought forth many mixed emotions. i can’t deny i had stretched myself too thin more times than i’d like, and the year had flown by before i knew it. i was overloaded at work where i experienced many influxes of workload; but through that, i had earned my stripes and established myself as a lead. outside of work, my play was also action-packed. i took a step back from taekwondo, but have the intention to step back in once my tricks and flips are ready. i wouldn’t say i had a particularly healthy year; not having escaped the injuries – this time being my shoulder. i lost sight of my fitness at times, but still kept it within reason. with all the successes and setbacks of the past twelve months, i had a lot of take backs knowing i had grown and proved that i could handle myself in uncomfortable situations. looking ahead, 2019 will be a year of hustle where i’ll be chasing some pretty ambitious goals i had set for myself. again, i expect myself to continue grinding and hustling for everything i’ve always wanted. i’m committed to investing the next three hundred and sixty five days to become the best version of myself

i experienced the best and worst of days in 2018, but nothing i couldn’t overcome. the darkest moments stung and the brightest moments shone, but above all, i managed to stay afloat. as 2018 departs, i’m looking ahead and expecting a lot out of myself in 2019

day 1829 – woman in black

my 2xu tights getting in on the action while i do some active stretching. no shame taking a selfie because there’s a first time for everyone. i usually wear shorts into the gym so this is a new look for me sporting all black coveted compressions. just in the gym trying to get some maintenance work done while i can’t be an active participant in my normal activities. it wasn’t just the legs, my chest and shoulder is still very sore from physio’s beating. disappointed that the pain and my movement is still as limited, but a little premature to say that it’s not improving

day 1415 Рventuresome 

hustling hard everyday just to fulfill vancouver’s living standards. trying to hustle harder to hunt down my future unit in the rising economy. at the end of each long work intensive day, i tell myself i’m going to get rewarded in the end – somehow, someway. in the meantime, the little periodic getaways are the highlights i look forward to; well earned time off to relax. i will be back for more adventures after visiting places i’ve always wanted to visit. one day, i’ll get the hawaiian or beachy trip that i’ve always wanted

day 1232 – work work work

back into the office at half past seven ready to work. after tutoring and a long fulfilling workout, i’m finally back home half past nine for a quick bite before doing some graphics work. no easing back in on this super long day. i have yet to get around to housekeeping stuff, but at least i’m over the hump. even though we didn’t spend any time together today, we both recognize and value the importance of today

day 950 – monday hustle

monday stats are usually outrageous, today was no different despite barely regaining my normal capacity. if asked, at the beginning of today, if i could have achieved these numbers by the end of the day, i would have thought that was a preposterously impossible. in fact i was just aiming to make it through training and dodgeball without collapsing. it feels amazing my output was far beyond what my mind thought i could muster. i’m glad i was pushed to work my butt off and make that stats line. i’ll feel the effects tomorrow but it’s definitely worth every ounce of sweat and effort put forth today
