9 Years ago today I hit send with only one mission – To make more good than bad come from my daughters tragedy.
Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,
I have viewed life with a new perspective.
That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.
I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.
I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.
I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.
I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.
But it most certainly will.
And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.
Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:
To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.
I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.
To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.
That is the vision for my life and for this blog.
Thank you for your support.
I no longer look at my birthday as the point of reference as to when I truly became alive in the timeline of my life.
When life throws you to your back, you need to know how not to get pinned, get off your back, and do enough to make up the difference to win.
The robbed that smiles steals something from the thief.
You win, or you learn.
Your intuition can see around corners and over mountains.
Once is a mistake. Twice is a choice.
I have never seen a wrestler who came off the mat placing blame or making an excuse ever wrestle his next match with a better outcome.
Have an unrelenting quest for a better life.
Most people mistakenly look at a wrestler who weighs his food and says he isn’t allowed to eat.
That is not true.
