It’s been an interesting week. I got my very first black eye. Before you start thinking I’m all that, my sweet 15 year old daughter elbowed me in the eye while we were rolling. I call her the Tasmanian Devil Girl…she reminds me of the old cartoon character that was always moving at warp speed. This old Mom can’t keep up with her and I move in instead of moving out and she whirls around at warp speed and BAM, elbow and eye collide. She still feels pretty rotten about it, cried like a baby, but Mama’s all good. What other place than on the mats can you beat up on your Mom and its okay!
This is what I see when I roll with my daughter...a big blur of arms and legs coming at me from all directions. Tasmanian Devil Girl...I still love you! :)
I completed my second Elements class for Crossfit yesterday. I was so far outside my comfort zone it hurt. But right in the big middle of all that sweat and pain and gasping for air, I just knew. I am on the right path. My journey has taken me right where I belong. I’m going to be okay and I will get where I need to be. I’ve got lots of help, great coaches, a loving family, and a whole community of BJJ brothers and sisters. .
