2015 at a glance

pulled together snapshots of some of my favourite and not so favourite moments of 2015. through this unfiltered eye, it pieces together my year and the things that took place behind the lens. it was 365 days of ups and downs, but having survived it all made me realize and learn more about myself. i have grown on many levels, taken strides to step out of my comfort zone and in the end, all that made me a better and stronger person more readied to tackle greater challenges. i will take all the lessons learned and head into the new year with the mindset of continuous progress and self improvement. 2015 had it’s moments – building the foundation and laying out the backbone necessary for success. i have a good feeling 2016 will be a year of many breakthroughs and personal achievements

know no limit

some things in life take a long time to learn, some things in life take a life time to adopt; many of which that takes longer are the lessons that are well worth the wait. i have been constantly hounded by motivated individuals that tells me limits only exist in the mind and that all records are meant to be broken and surpassed over time. their hard work and persistent ways of beating this concept into me has not gone to waste. i have been working hard on taking their words to turning them into reality, making progress every time i step in for whatever training it may be. i do have results to show for and certainly my mind has become stronger than what it once was not too long ago. being able to do what i couldn’t do last time is a step in the right direction, being what i thought i could never do is my ultimate prize. indeed, this is an important lesson i am still trying to drill into my mind, but i know it’s been slowly getting through to me. i hope my progress will be continual, that i will never stop short of striving for better every single time. one day, i ultimately hope to make them proud of me, to look back and see where i’ve been and how far i’ve come. i want no regrets, and i certainly don’t want to disappoint myself or anyone not having tried my best to achieve what i should very well be capable of

day 746 – morning session

good morning, waking up early for a morning session to start off my saturday right. morning gym seshs are tougher than the usual, clearly, i am not a morning gym person. doing everything i can possibly do, under my control, to steer the ship in the right direction. learning to stay patient and shoot for long term progress over short term goals. i know that i am taking tiny steps forward and making progress everyday, and only time will tell. i am trying my best, i will get there when i am meant to get there. in the meantime, i will continue to breathe and chug on

twenties series: [fourteen] goals

everyone must have goals in life because goals are what drives us to improve every single day and what motivates us to strive for better. competition is often necessary because you get to see people around you and what is out there that is possible to strive towards. chances are someone out there is better than you and that’s when you realize all the room for potential growth and self improvement. a little competition amongst friends give you that extra boost and bring that competitive side out of you, but look no further because the point is to be better than yourself yesterday. wake up with determination and go to bed with satisfaction. no one is perfect, but every person have ever opportunity to make themselves a better and more well rounded person. for me personally, one of my biggest goal is to continue doing what i love and play the sports i can’t live without. with that being said, the biggest challenge for me is to stay healthy, minimize the injuries and get stronger. i want to continue to compete as much as i can and get as much competition exposure as possible before i call it quits. another goal is eating healthy and healthy clean. trying to regulate what i eat and get rid of the unnecessary junk out. feeling more determined than ever to set my goals and focus on achieving them every single day

day 302 – familiar territory

erratic visits lately to fix my knee problems that’s been sidelining me for the past week. almost any kind of bending is prohibited aside from walking, this to me feels worse than imprisonment. three years today was the first time i broke my foot. how far i have come and how much i have gone through to get to this point and i will stop at nothing because i know it will only get stronger and better
