CROSSFIT SYOSSET/ WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13TH

UNFORTUNATELY FOR YOU GUYS THIS IS MY ONLY OUTLET RIGHT NOW.
SO YOU ARE FORCED TO READ EVERYTHING I HAVE TO SAY!
WELL, UNLESS YOU JUST DON’T READ IT.  BUT YOU’RE NOT LIKE THAT.
ESPECIALLY WHEN I’M MUSTERING UP EVERY LAST BIT OF ENERGY I HAVE FOR THE DAY TO WRITE THIS!

YA KNOW,  THEY SAY WHEN YOU GO THROUGH ONE OF THESE THINGS IT CAN CHANGE WHO YOU ARE, WHO YOU HAVE BECOME AND WHAT YOUR PURPOSE REALLY IS IN LIFE, AMONGST OTHER THINGS I’M SURE.

I’M NOT SURE ABOUT ALL THAT STUFF BUT WHAT IT DID DO IS MAKE ME REALIZE IN A GOOD WAY, WHICH AS CONSEQUENTLY AS IT MAY SOUND, IS WHAT I’VE BEEN TRYING TO BRING BACK INTO MY LIFE.
I USED TO BE DIFFERENT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER WHICH I’M SURE MOST OF YOU WERE, FOR ME IT WAS NOT REALLY GIVING A CRAP ABOUT ANYTHING UNLESS IT WAS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO BE WORTH CARING ABOUT.
I’M SURE SOME OF YOU GUYS WHOM HAVE BEEN WITH ME FOR THE LIFE OF THE GYM CAN ATTEST TO WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE I STARTED CARING ABOUT “SHIT” INSTEAD OF JUST WHAT I SHOULD BE CARING ABOUT.  I STARTED LETTING EVERY LITTLE THING PEOPLE DID THAT WASN’T RIGHT, IN MY EYES, EFFECT ME.
I STARTED CARING ABOUT EVERY LITTLE THING WHICH IS PROBABLY WHY I ENDED UP LOOKING LIKE A FROG PINNED DOWN TO THE TRAY IN BIOLOGY CLASS, YOU REMEMBER THOSE, YOU ALWASY TOOK THE FROG WITH THE MOST MEAT SO YOU CAN REALLY CUT DOWN DEEP INSIDE, UM UM RIGHT…

WELL, ANYWAY FORGET THE FROG AND LET’S GET BACK TO MY STORY.
BEFORE THIS UNAUTHORIZED CHANGE TOOK PLACE IN THE WAY I THINK LIFE WAS DIFFERENT, THERE WAS NO GETTING UPSET AT ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL, IT WOULD TAKE A SEVERE EVENT TO BOTHER ME.
THESE DAYS I NOTICE IF SOMEONE DOEN’ST DO THE RIGHT THING IT BOTHERS ME WHICH WAS REALLY STARTING TO BOTHER ME LOL.
WELL, JUST FIGURING IT OUT IS HALF THE BATTLE, ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS YOU CAN DEVISE A PLAN AND TAKE IT OUT!
AMONGST LIFE BEING OF THE UTMOST CONCERN, RELATIONSHIPS ARE RIGHT UP THERE.  UNFORTUNATELY WE LIVE IN AN AREA WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER THINGS MORE IMPORTANT THAN JUST RELATIONSHIPS.
TOO MANY TIMES RELATIONSHIPS ARE TAKEN FOR GRANTED AND INSTEAD OF PUTTING IN THE EFFORT AND WATCHING YOUR RELATIONSHIPS BLOSSOM BECAUSE OF YOUR HARD WORK THEY ARE JUST PUSHED ASIDE WITH THE THINKING THAT “OH THAT PERSON OR RELATIONSHIP WILL ALWAYS BE THERE.
THEN SOMETHING HAPPENS ONE DAY AND IT’S NOT.

LOOK AT HOW MANY TIMES THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE THAT YOU SAY, “I WISH I WOULD’VE SPENT MORE TIME WITH THAT PERSON”,  “I SHOULD HAVE TRIED HARDER TO MAKE THAT RELATIONSHIP WORK”,  “MAYBE IF I WOULD HAVE TRIED JUST AS HARD AS I DO AT OTHER SHIT AS I DO AT MY RELATIONSHIPS THEY WOULD ALL BE GREAT”

IF THESE EXACT THINGS WEREN’T EVER SAID I’M SURE YOU CAN THINK OF SOME RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAVE HAD THAT FELL SHORT BECAUSE THEY WERE TAKEN FOR GRANTED.
HOW MANY TIMES HAS SOMEONE SAID TO YOU THEY WISHED THEY WOULD HAVE SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEIR KIDS WHILE THEY WERE GROWING UP?
THAT INSTEAD OF RUSHING THROUGH CERTAIN PARTS OF THEIR LIVES THEY WISHED THEY WOULD HAVE SAT BACK AND REALLY ENJOYED THEIR CHILDREN?

I KNOW I MYSELF AM GUILTY OF THIS, WHETHER IT HAVE BEEN BECAUSE OF WORK OR SOMETHING I THOUGHT WAS MORE IMPORTANT AT THE TIME, NO EXCUSE IS GOOD ENOUGH TO NOT PUT FORTH EFFORT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.  IF THE RELATIONSHIP IS WORTH BEING IN THAN IT’S WORTH DOING ANYTHING FOR.

THINK ABOUT IT, RELATIONSHIPS IS REALLY WHAT BRINGS YOU HAPPINESS RIGHT?  NOT MONEY OR HOUSES, OR CARS OR BOATS, OR ANYTHING MATERIALISTIC AT ALL, THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN BUY THAT CAN MAKE YOU FEEL AS GOOD AS IF SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING FOR YOU OR SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU ON THE COUNT THAT YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT PERSON RIGHT?
FOR EXAMPLE, I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW EXCITED, COMFORTABLE AND ELATED I AM THAT SO MANY OF YOU DECIDED TO HELP OUT WITH THE GYM AT THIS POINT IN TIME.
THERE’S NOTHING IN THE WORLD I COULD HAVE OR ANYONE ELSE FOR THAT MATTER COULD HAVE BOUGHT ME THAT WOULD HAVE MADE ME FEEL AS GOOD KNOWING I DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU GUYS DID FOR ME.

SO BEFORE I START RAMBLING ON AND YOU LOSE INTEREST IN WHAT I HAVE TO SAY, NOT THAT YOU EVER WOULD.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MABYE LOOK OVER YOUR RELATIONSHIPS IN YOUR LIFE AND SEE IF YOU ARE GIVING ALL YOU CAN TO EACH ONE OR IS SHIT GETTING IN THE WAY?
IF IT’S WORTH HAVING THE RELATIONSHIP IT’S WORTH GIVING IT 100%, THIS IS A VERY UNSELFISH THING TO DO BUT VERY REWARDING IN THE END.
