What a month of glutinous idgaf's will do to you, ladies and gents. We're laugh-crying at our "before" pictures, partly because we forced ourselves to post them but mostly because we forgot to take them until after our last run to bdubs. Wings for days. Tears for years.
There's something to be said for solitude, self reflection. At the @fieldcraftsurvival assessment we spent an hour, alone with our thoughts. I look back on that experience often. At the end of most of my training sessions I take some time to reflect, to remind myself of my purpose. And I often come back to two things, the @oafnation_actual Tiger in the lotus; "There is nothing noble about being superior to your fellow man, true nobility is being superior to your former self." And a lesson @sofsurvivor and @kurt_teamfieldcraft taught me. A mental house that I built during that hour at the assessment, that I've continued to build over these last months. It's not an easy thing to be alone, to train alone and rely only on your self discipline to succeed. But when you're working to be a part of something so much bigger than yourself it's easy to find your "why". I'm thankful to have my #tribe my amazing wife @chelt.marina, my brothers and mentors that remind me of what I'm working towards. #ironsharpensiron#mentors#noexcuses#noragrets#nofuckingslack#resilience#fortitude#mindset#reflection#amioneofthekuhlkidsnow
September 27, 2007 I went to an @interpol concert at the Palladium Ballroom in Dallas with lots of uncertainty. The same day, I was given the potential opportunity to take a job in a city I'd never been to at a company I'd never heard of and leave behind the guy I'd been dating a little over a year. Almost 10 years to the day- 5.5 years of marriage and still happily living in NYC (with a couple of years being neighbors to Carlos D.)- tonight's anniversary show was magic ❤️ #fullcircle#noragrets#turnonthebrightlights
