Keeping activities, hobbies, goals, and dreams to chase help you to survive all forms of suffering that life brings. If you can think of it, you can do it. It’s a subject of mind over matter. If you don’t mind suffering to get to where you planned ongoing.
It doesn't matter what lies before you. You will surpass all who aim to coerce you into submission. There is always another way. You just have to be willing to try.
I have had a myriad of escapes over the years. From martial arts to swimming, from gaming to construction, from sports to competitive cycling. From wall climbing to jumping over rooftops and trees.
I have to say, it’s been worth it all. Looking forward to challenges. I love them. I learned early on life is hard. But I laugh at the face of danger and failure because of it.
But it doesn't mean I won't avoid unnecessary hassle when it comes to it. I have made grave mistakes to try to understand the premise of how I made errors. I learned to question the errors in my ways. And that allowed me to improve my weaknesses and harness them as my strengths.
Sure there was a great deal of pain involved but I focus on the things way ahead of me. And they keep me going. Always have been, always will be.
