day 2426 – handsprings

after two plus months, i was ready to test out my shoulder with some back handsprings. the first ones were ugly, but it got on track after a couple more tries. i’m very surprised that i hadn’t completely lost it after having to put it aside for months. it’s a feel good training today because everything else also found it’s place. my backside 9 felt as good as ever, my websters had a bit of a breakthrough, combos were smoother and both my front handsprings and back handsprings are in working order again. i plan to have many level ups during this quarantine

day 2378 – winger dinner

got some wednesday wings after some air track training. though i didn’t make it into distinct back handsprings or flash, i made progress by just getting around on my own. i hit my head on the edge once or twice but i just have to keep doing it until it clicks. i’m pretty hard on myself for not getting the tumbling, but i know it’s a must in order for me to continue. i hope very soon it will look like what i actually want to do – the cartwheel flash or cartwheel back handspring. finished off the night having talks about taekwondo, competition, future school, side gigs, and stocks

rebuild in motion

i took a tumble recently, literally and figuratively, and really hit rock bottom but that doesn’t mean i am allowed to stay down forever. thought long and hard and now it’s time to take action and do it for myself. sometimes all we need is a fresh start to revive and the best way to restart is to begin with a blank piece of paper. i took it upon myself that i would wipe off all the unnecessary and negative influences and only focus on the positives that would get me to where i want to go. clear my mind of clutter, always remember to stay humble and accept criticism as more reason to work harder and find my strong.¬†as far as i am concerned, there only one thing¬†standing between me and my goal, and that’s will. willing myself to be accepting to change, to be confident, to be disciplined and to be happy with who i am. there’s no other time to start but now and i don’t want another opportunity to slip away, because it’s now or never. it’s time to train harder for the things i want to achieve, eat smarter to give myself a boost and make the right choices to live better and healthier for my mind and body. the key is to be disiciplined and stay that way, and only then will i feel proud to be who i am. expectations are meant to be met, not lowered. it’s never easy, but i am about to take my first step
