Emotions are interesting. Its the side of the brain that we don't have complete control over and we try to control it. I don't except excuses for myself so this is a tough side for me to grasp. The fact of the matter is what will be will be. I can only employ the two scenarios I am faced with on Sunday. #1 Where is my body on this day? and #2 Where is my head at? If my head is the strongest of the two I will be successful.
If I was to pin down the number one asset in my life it would have to be the people that I am blessed to work, teach, train and more importantly LIVE with. When you find people that support you just as much as you support them. You know you're doing the right things in life.
This one girl (someone I have witnessed get stronger and stronger each day) said it best in card written to me this week:
"In Medieval England, a new form of architecture was developed to build larger and stronger cathedrals than had previously existed. These cathedrals were supported by nothing but self-resistance, relying only on the strength of its own stones. To do this, a system of support beams were put in place until every stone was in order, then removed, allowing the structure to stand on its own."
We all need support beams. Its incredible how many support beams I have and I am simply stoked to be a support beam for people around me. I will be able to stand on my own, finding strength on Sunday because of each and every one of you...
Big thank you in advance to all the H3 Alum who are coming on Sunday. It means the world to me...
