What Drives You?

I’m under the impression that there are three types of people in this world: Competitive and Self-Propelled, and as with everything else, a little bit of grey area. After reading a recent Facebook post from a friend and fellow athlete, I’ve been inspired to delve into the topic full force.

Strength Does Not Come From Physical Capacity

Lots to update, lots to share, and frankly, it’s 7:45am and I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee, so I’m ready to write.

Nothing is Really Work

Nothing is Really Work

Unless you would rather be doing something else…” - J.M. Barrie

This post has been a long time coming, but as with any great decision, it has been backed by great doubt.  Long story short: we back in this bitch!

Be Patient

If there’s one lesson I’ve learned from relationships of any kind, it’s that patience is a must, and perhaps second to trust.  I’ve spent much of my life praying for the relationships I’ve been blessed with. As a human being yourself, you’ll understand…
