This weekend was definitely tough. Just after our Free Saturday Kickboxing MMA Class we received the call, my Uncle Bobby had passed away. He was at home surrounded by his wife, family and animals which is the way he would have wanted it.
Getting the news was difficult, especially just before we were going to start our MARS Curriculum Workshop. But, my Uncle had an amazing life. He was a hard worker and an wonderful human being. He respected hard work and loved his family. So, I did what I love to do in his memory. Share and teach some great knowledge with my martial arts family. It was a long 10am-7pm kind of a day… and totally worth it.
This brings me to something I see as a method to help us all in life. We can always look for an easy way out of things. But that wasn’t how my Uncle Bobby lived. He didn’t make excuses and he sure didn’t listen to them either. This re-enforces the only way I know how to combat these moments and thoughts. One simple and easy step… get busy!!!
This is probably why I keep my plate full with so many goals, projects and tasks. You see things happen when you get moving!! This reminds me of my favorite saying.
“Motion Leads to Emotion”
In moments where thoughts can really weigh you down, try getting busy! Get up and just literally just start doing something. You will notice a huge change in the way you feel and what you can accomplish.
Now enough reading… time to get busy 🙂
