It’s been a while, but I am back.
It’s been a 2014 full of change, challenge and even more change. Things certainly don’t always go according to plan but you’ve got to roll with the punches, so to speak. Overcoming challenges is an important part of life. Overcoming challenges helps us feel every inch of our humanity. I’ve been there.
Being back in my adopted home state of Nevada, the family and me are finding solace being close to friends and family. Being in Kansas City had such upside, but also was rough on all of us. We didn’t have the support group we have here. That made it hard. It was lots of holidays by ourselves in a great community that isn’t always open to “outsiders.” Nonetheless, I have no regrets about our time there and met so many great folks; it’s impossible to mention them all.
“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” – Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
But today is about now, not the past and I’m excited. The new job at Haymon Boxing is incredible and I’m having the professional time of my life. You couldn’t ask for a better opportunity or to work with a better group of people. I have to pinch myself each day to make sure it’s real. Yes, it’s that good.
Still, reflecting on the changes in my career, I can’t help but share some thoughts. Not all of them positive, but worth at least jotting down:
Until next time…thanks and peace!
