finding the warrior in you

I know that the world of professional wrestling and this blog have very little to do with one another, however this weeks blog will intertwine with that world just a little bit.  Two weeks ago one of my heroes as a child, I have been a wrestling fan since age 3, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 54. Over the weekend before his passing he had relived his life and showed appreciation towards his wife and children and repeated over and over how much they meant to him and how he loved them. This all hit me like a ton of bricks and really got me emotional. He gave this amazing speech which here is a part of..”Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life what makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper and something larger than life then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized. By the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever.” That is just a part of the speech that he gave just one night before his untimely passing of a heart attack. As I read that I have to tell myself that he had some sort of inkling that his days were numbered and that he had to get all he could out in those final days. As I have pondered over this I ask myself when the end comes will these emotions overtake me and will I know?  I have always feared death and obviously this man which was one of my heroes as a young boy did not. I know that I have to make the best out of each day. I have spent many moments of my 34 years moping and not  enjoying the brightness that this life has to offer me.  It is a pretty simple concept, arrive, live, and die. I have a beautiful wife and two amazing kids in my life. I need to spend much more time being an inspiration and stop being someone that is at times unbearable to be around. I have some great things to offer and I don’t embrace them. As I spent the afternoon in my yard with my wife yesterday doing landscaping and enjoying the wonders of what this earth has to offer I really thought to myself that I need to find my inner warrior and roll with it. Life is too short not to be lived. When the end rolls in and the days are numbered I want to say that I did all I could to make that bright light that we see from the sun. Thank you so much for reading the blog and letting me express this all. Have a great day and warrior on:) Ian
