The mirror only reflects what is seen on the surface. The inner dwellings are layers, clothed by the emotions that are forever worn on my sleeve. The challenges that I face, have nonetheless, served as an everlasting reminder to understanding life's spectrum. A wake up call, that carries a steady annoying buzz, that can not be snoozed within arms reach. It's a longstanding battle to overcome the doubters, naysayers and a slew of demons that surround failure. Success, well ....it's perspective based, a clear indication of where you are and where you would like to be.
In essence, the sound off, the grind, is founding for me. It's forever embedded. It's a suit that I wear proudly and confidently. It's something that keeps me behind the wheel of life as I drive for a better me. In terms of winning and loosing, there's a balance that must be maintained. There has to be a destination in mind. There has to be a set of directions in place that you are willing to follow, only to avoid getting lost along the way.
This season has been an uphill battle. I've never experienced losing in a way that I have this year. On a personal level, I've been extremely productive, currently 3rd in the league in scoring (27.8) but that doesn't necessarily fulfill my purpose. In fact, It's only made it harder to maintain. Digging deep for motives that aren't always there. It's been tough, but in totality this experience has made me a better player, hence, a better person. It's allowed me the opportunity to work on myself in terms of slowing life down and assessing things in a better light. It's been unwavering. I've remained emotionally and mentally dedicated to my task. My focus still stands. I've learned many valuable lessons, one of which helps me understand the "green grass theory" and having the PATIENCE in watching it grow.
With that, I'm truly set. All gassed up with my windshields perfectly spotless. Nothing to impair my vision and or sight while in pursuit of reaching wherever it is that I set out to be.
Facts remain...In life there there will always be main roads. There will always be short cuts and back blocks. The road less traveled ins't always ideal but that's just a part of life.. Take what you have and go from there.......
Pedal to the floor... turn up!!!
