Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
Growth requires a certain amount of risk-taking; and that can be scary stuff, even for the most hardened of us. The key is to surround yourself with great friends - friends who will back you, catch you if you fall, encourage you in the face of failure. Surround yourself with people like this and you will embrace risk more readily; and that in turn, will see you prevail in the game of life. There are also times when we need a support just in case ‘life’ throws us a curve-ball; stuff happens (good and bad) - and sometimes happens randomly, due to no fault or decision of ours; sometimes, people just need a little help! We cannot thrive alone … we need other; each of us has the potential not only to help ourselves but to help others when they are just unable to do so themselves. - JBW
