“If you remember anything of me after I leave this world, remember that I loved even when it was foolish. That I cared even when it was unwanted. When my body is gone, remember my heart.”
I know this is more appropriate on his passing anniversary but it still fits…
I told you all there was ONE more date that lined up this year on my Wednesday blog day and it is Warrior’s birthday. I looked ahead a while back and now it has come. As always, I know his warrior girls and those closest to him will honor and remember in their own way. For this post, I didn’t want it all to be about his birthday so decided to use some quotes I found. A few years ago, I posted several of Warrior’s famous quotes ( in and out of character) but now it’s time to share some I believe connect to him, his beliefs, and US to always believe in ourselves. My spiritual cousin seems to send me the BEST inspiring quotes just when I need them the most. Hers all have a certain word in them. 😉More on those in a bit…
Here’s one I posted on the U.W. Facebook page:
“If you are silent about your beliefs because you are worried someone will be offended, then your beliefs are not that important to you, but rather what people think about you is. What people see about you will speak more loudly than how people feel about you because in the end, when we stand up for what is right and true, we will have many who hate us or love us, but all will know what we are fighting for.”

***Isn’t this Warrior? I thought of him when I first read it and am sure he’d agree. ***
These next ones were written from a woman’s perspective but you guys- feel free to sub any words of she and her with he and him. Also, you can sub queen for king. My cousin knows how to pick ‘um, that’s for sure. We are “soul sisters” and are in sync with each other. I am so grateful for her on this journey. She has been mentioned here as the widow who lost her husband young, remarried, and her boys were “real” wrestlers. Yep, that’s her. I hope you find some encouraging as I do. They brought me tears but gave me hope as well. Some of it I believe applies to Dana as she is our warrior queen. 👑
“She’s done looking back, questioning herself and dwelling on her mistakes. She’s rising like the dawn of a new day, brighter, stronger, and more powerful than she’s ever been. She’s more than a survivor, she’s a warrior queen with a fiery spirit and a strong heart. No longer will she allow others to take advantage of her and she’s turning the page on a new chapter today. She’s casting aside the pain of her often broken heart and she’s using that anguish as fuel for her to rise stronger from the ashes. Sure, she’s afraid, doesn’t have all the answers but she knows she doesn’t have to… The flames made her the warrior she is… her voice will be heard with resounding passion and conviction.”

Here’s more from Brooke:
“You’re right, I am more than a little weird and a bit awkward. No, I don’t fit in and most people don’t understand me. But at least I’m being real and I think the world needs more people who are brave enough to be real.”
~~~ Think I posted that also to the group but besides the awkward part, that is Warrior since being authentic mattered to him. It should matter to us too.
~~~ A few more:
“I’m slowly learning that life is better lived when you don’t center it on what’s happening around you and center it on what’s happening inside you instead.”
~~~ Rania Naim~~~
~~~ Yet another:
“You see your reflection in the mirror? Don’t be hard on it. Those eyes might look tired but they have pushed through, carried on. Those lines are of years lived and problems solved. That reflection is one of a brave soul. A warrior, a champion in this world, a healer, a giver, a lover, a sweet spirit. Instead of seeing the flaws, celebrate the good. You are strong, wonderful, and more than enough.”
~~~ Chloe Bell~~~
I will end with this:
” Your life becomes a masterpiece when you learn to master peace.”
*** Happy Birthday in parts unknown Warrior. Thank you for being that champion who never strayed from your beliefs, fought the naysayers that misunderstood you, had a brave heart, and learned to master peace near the end. I hope you celebrate in an ultimate way like only you can. I, like countless others who believed in you will always believe in myself. ~~~ 6/16/21. ~~~ Kathy

P.S. While in the store last week, my total came to $16.00. The cashier said that was her first even number that day. Then, she asked what that was on my arm. I just said a tattoo. Nobody really notices my Warrior logo much anymore. She said it was cool… I didn’t put it all together until later.
It was a Wednesday when I blog Warrior writings, the total was 16, ( Warrior’s bday a week early) and her noticing my tattoo. Yes, I realize some may say it’s a “stretch” but not for me. I usually do get something around his bday and that was it. 💙A three count too!
