Hi everyone. First of all, I redid the NAC logo since the old one was hard to read, and it didn't give off that serious vibe I was hoping for. Hope you all like the new header, and please leave a comment underneath if you liked this article.
Change is hard. There, I said it, but it's a given. Sometimes, this change comes to you when you least expect it. It could be a death in the family, a friend getting married then refusing to talk to you anymore, or even an exciting move across the country. A million thoughts fly through my head whenever something of this scale occurs. How am I going to pay for all this? A trip to see my aunt pass away in Phoenix and her subsequent funeral, or even the hours on end of having to talk to distant cousins who don't know you're a fitness model.
I'm one of those people who loves to plan everything ahead, seeing far into the future. In five years, where am I going to be at? Will I still be with Tribal? Who will I be dating? These are questions that I always ask myself to ensure that I have a goal, or a purpose in life. If there is no such goal, you begin to die, and not just mentally. The body will shut down, and with its myriad of problems, the mind will soon follow.
Back to the topic at hand. I know way too many people who resist the curve balls that life throws at them. Someone push you off the planters at the mall? Shake it off, laugh it off, or do something other than hold a grudge against the guy who did it. Being with Jason and his eccentricities have given me a lot of patience, and while I won't go into details, it has made me into a stronger person. Even my working relationships with Ryker and Kody have provided many tests while at Tribal.
Grudges and stubbornness are an early herald of death. While it is important to not be a doormat like many people think I am, you can't go through a door insisting on just standing in a room either. Change is something you'll have to embrace, whether you want to or not. I'll leave with a few closing thoughts: stay optimistic, and stay healthy.
