Before I begin my post today, I just want to express my sympathies on the loss of Bobby Heenan. He suffered for many years and now can be reunited with the greats of WWF. “The Weasel” match is so funny and Bobby had plenty of antics with Warrior! The “bumps” he took meant a lot to Warrior and will never be forgotten by fans everywhere. I can picture Vince saying “Will you knock that off!” The Brain was using the Brain Scan before the SNME match between the Ultimate Maniacs and Money Inc. I also remember him saying ” O.W.N. gentlemen!” This was on WCW’s Nitro show when Warrior beat up the NWO. Oh Bobby, too many memories to list… Enjoy that ring in the sky…🙏🏻😇😓
My entire life has been wanting to do things by myself in a way that works for me. I try so hard and never give up because defeat is not an option. Often times I would ask myself why the complicated or complex situations always seem to find me. Warrior was indeed a complicated person and yet he did things for himself without doubting his beliefs. There are reasons why we should push ourselves without a quitting attitude and Warrior did this all the time.
The mentality of who we are is indeed a mystery and nobody can get inside your head to find out why. It sometimes surprises me how much energy I give to people or a situation. Some things I am not very good at and yet I keep going despite the outcome. I was horrible at math in school and even though my grades suffered, I kept persevering since I needed to make my brain understand it. It all becomes a learning process everyday.
Many years ago when I was recently hired at my second job, I sustained an injury that almost required a chiropractor. This was almost someone’s profession that I seem to know on a spiritual level these days! I didn’t want anyone to know since this was a few months into the job and an injury wouldn’t slow me down. Warrior told a story on his Ultimate Collection DVD about an injury early in his career. He couldn’t tell anyone since it was his first big push in the business.
I am not a person to ask for help much at all but on some occasions, I need to. This should not diminish us and yet sometimes we feel like it does. It really depends on the situation but everything teaches us lessons. There are those times when something just isn’t working and we need to throw in the towel.
Certain circumstances dictate that we must move on from things that no longer benefit us. Warrior had to learn by doing much for himself that brought success but also required an inner battle he had to master.
Doing things by myself was much easier since tasks would get done the way I needed them to. When I was an inexperienced mom, it was simple to do just about everything for my kids since it would get done faster. This is great but parents will tell you they need to figure it out on their own. Now, it is different and my kids learn by themselves with little help from me. Sure, I am still their mom but independence is what life is all about.
The most important thing to remember is how we handle a situation that is thrown our way. Nobody can live your life for you and yet we must continue to find that balance between doing much alone and asking for help. I don’t give up easily if it is something I truly believe in. Others may have a different opinion and I accept that. Warrior said to “slay all the naysayers” and I will do that because this warrior girl never quits!
~~~ P.S. With my Birthday being tomorrow, I will be thanking Warrior for this beautiful experience I continue to have and am so grateful to be following my purpose!!! 💪🏻💖
