The Power of Television

~~~ This month I decided to concentrate on some of my influences and traits that defined my Warrior moments. Let’s begin…

All of us have our favorite shows on T.V. that we look forward to watching. I also think that most identify with certain characters or actors on the shows they watch every week. I certainly did even as a child, teen, and now adult. They do influence us in so many ways we may not even know at the time like me with Warrior.
Some people are just very relatable or likable whether it’s the role they are playing or who they really are as a person. We also probably like the concept or storyline. If I had never watched “American Pickers” I wouldn’t have researched my grandparents small antique table to find out its origin. So happy doing something that brought me much joy and it sits proudly in my home. Others get inspired by home improvement projects by watching HGTV and would never think about some renovations if not for that network with all their ideas. The hosts are friendly and identifiable in some ways that make them appealing to viewers.

We always feel this need to want their friendship through the t.v. screen. Why do you suppose this is? It’s not like we don’t have our own relationships with people we actually know and spend time with.
I think it is because the easy ability of characters always remains one-sided. We don’t really know them so there is no arguing, drama, jealousy, or bitterness. It is the escape from our own daily life and possible problems that come along for the ride. Whether or not many people will admit it, we all have these actors on t.v. that affect us.
As I watch videos of Warrior on the DVD, website, YouTube, or other media I love him being himself best of all. Sure, there are probably hundreds of wrestling videos available one could watch for days but for me anymore– I enjoy the REAL Warrior who was the husband and Dad. He isn’t screaming, running, working out, or having face paint on. He’s just sitting talking about life, his experiences, and how to motivate us as warriors.
I have related most to these and really feel a different connection like we could’ve been friends. πŸ˜‰ He doesn’t intimidate or seem superior, just a regular guy. Don’t get me wrong– I don’t mean “normal” but easy to listen and understand. No gimmick at all. T.V. or the Internet are very dominant and we can use them both to our advantage. We need to grow, learn, and be inspired our whole lives. πŸ“ΊπŸ’»

P.S. My great-grandma watched pro-wrestling back in the early years of television. One of her favorites was Gorgeous George!! Am sure I would’ve loved her….. πŸ’–

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book Spirit and Belief on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how anyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get discovered.

  1. First, which great grandma?! That’s awesome!!!
    Second, I can relate 100% with how you described television shows and certain characters. It IS an escape for me. And sometimes I also use it as a release of emotion. Like when I watch Parenthood, it’s sometimes because I am homesick and need a good cry. Or Big Bang Theory (I want Sheldon to be my friend! Haha) when I need to unwind and just chuckle to myself at their puns. And lest we forget the drama filled reality shows we all guiltily watch at times, to help us realize that our problems may not seem as bad as they are.πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
    Thank you for this simple reminder!!!!! It really made me stop and think.β€πŸ“ΊπŸ€”
