day 1634 Рcoachella 

wasn’t intending on coaching this one but here i am early saturday morning. nine straight hours of taekwondo isn’t what i called for but at least i got to fit a hockey game in to close off the night. i was mad at myself for missing the net on the one timer off a nice feed. it was a good game overall and what matters is i’m having fun and hand is feeling just fine. i’ve never bounced off a guy to the point where i was knocked momentarily off the ice. this body will be very tired tomorrow after being physically tired for nineteen hours

the can do attitude i bring forth has proven it can take me far. my role has expanded quickly since the start of january and i’m quickly recognizing that gaining responsibilities and gaining importance comes hand in hand. as such, overtiming no longer surprises me. after a hard day’s work, it was a good night chilling out with the long time taekwondo bros and sis. we’ve become such a close knit group over the years training, competing, traveling and drinking together. afterall, the road to nationals wasn’t easy, but we got each other’s back. the bond continues to be strong no matter where life takes us because taekwondo brings us all back together

i never questioned whether my heart is in the right place cause i know it myself. the holiday card and written notes says it all. this reminds me of why i continue to push through my hectic life to be teaching year after year. the commitment is by no means small, but one that is meaningful to me. i don’t want to give up these kids i’ve trained, some for several months and some seven years. i forget what it’s like to be appreciated for what i do and what i do well. i thought it didn’t bug me, but it actually does and i’m told i should never tolerate or take it from anyone that doesn’t appreciate
