Hi guys! It's been a minute. It's hard to do these when I'm running on fumes but I'm actually awake on a short flight so here we are. Just wanted to quickly write up about what an amazing week it has been. This was my second set of tapings with Impact Wrestling and I just can't express how happy I was with everything I accomplished this week. When you get an idea and you're given the ability to run with it, it's successful, because the passion and excitement is THERE. It's one thing to just do as you're told and do that well enough, but it's another to say "hey I have a great idea that I think people would like" and be heard on it and allowed to see it through. Can't describe it really, but when you're standing in that ring and you start to feel everyone picking up what you're putting down, it's like a Frankenstein moment... "ITS ALIVE!!!!" Then there's the actual wrestling portion of it. I'm on my 5th match here, and I'm seeing improvement each and every time I get in there. It's really fun. And it's amazing to get kicked in the head (maybe not that part) and fall on the ground outside of the ring and hear an old lady say "my goodness are you alright hunny?!?!" In that moment someone that I never met before cares about me. Somehow that connection happens. I cannot fathom how far that connection is carrying these days, but that's cool. And to that sweet older woman if you read this, I banged myself up real good, but no worries, I'll fight again. 💪🏾 Passion. It drives everything. I've been really missing passion. Connections. Professional satisfaction. Friendships in this journey called professional wrestling. This week I took a look at all I've done and I smiled to myself. Impact Wrestling is giving me much more than a platform. They are giving me freedoms to learn and create judgement free. I didn't think that existed in wrestling. Heck, I was starting not to like this amazing thing called wrestling. Now im back in the honeymoon stage with it and on a professional level, that's the best that I could hope for.
Ever seen the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" starring Will Smith? Well, this part of my life, this little part of my life...is called happiness.
