WPO Part 2 – Thank you to those close to me

I have a lot to write about and don’t want to make each blog post super long and drawn out.

I’ve learned a lot and still keep getting slapped in the face with wisdom.

First: I want to thank ALL (Ria first and foremost) who have helped me over the last few years-15 years manage my life in all aspects and shine wisdom on me in every aspect.

I have realized a lot over the previous months-years and have put a lot more effort into my relationships with God and my wife Ria in particular. There are too many people to name and thank. Adam Driggers and Team Samson are a few that covers most of them.

This added peace (I still have a lot of work to do and very human) has provided a lot of realizations for me and much less angst in my life, though I still struggle when things happen, or I don’t do everything I want to accomplish like this weekend. Getting a few of these things settled in my head was right on time, I promise you that and not for this weekend.

For sure with as much absolute 100% certainty as possible, I can tell you that if I didn’t get a few things settled in my head over the last year; I would have not able to handle a few situations that came running my way with a clear head. I don’t think I could have avoided overreacting or at least would have reacted how I would have in the past.

At the very least, I would have been even more ‘distracted’ for a while or potentially even “away” and not able to also train, much less compete the previous weekend. This insanity is due to a few situations you can’t make up and may not believe me unless I showed you over and explained to you over the last few years.

Though some of the last three-four months, for those close to me, knew how much stress-tested I was, and I did my best, and worked through it and didn’t miss a single session. I honestly feel that I didn’t even let it impact my focus hardly at all.

I had a great training cycle with plenty of help and support. I made it through feeling good, and my number one goal was accomplished – making it to the meet in one piece and my shoulder holding up.

I’m blessed to have even been able to lift with the class of 242’s that I did this weekend.

More to come…
