It is October warriors. 🍁This year is almost over. How can that be? Seems to me like it was just the start of 2022 and now we are nearing the end soon. My year of milestones is coming to a close from this past week and then in a month or so, warrior writings will be at 300 posts. My oh my, here it comes. As you can see by those dates listed, this week marks another anniversary for both of my B’s. No, not the “Killer Bees” of wrestling fame, ha ha! The W of course stands for Warrior whose heavenly energetic hands assisted me through all this and continues today. Hard to believe they are 12 months and 3 days apart. Almost twins. Yeah.. To think I was only going to write this for a year. 6 years and still humbled. I am finally to that number of Ultimate Warrior’s finest career moment. I have evolved as we all should and yet…
I always get reflective upon these days every year as I’m filled with such emotion. Sometimes, I so wish I wouldn’t be extreme with them but that’s how it goes. I’m constantly working on this like you can’t believe. What I mean is how it all comes across with you readers. So grateful I always am so don’t get me wrong here. For those loyal readers, I love your support. I REALLY do. You’ve been with me the longest so let me know your thoughts. Any posts stand out to you? I would love your comments. It is so surreal to me how that number of 6 which still remains a regular fixture in my life, is here with this blog. 2016 and even 2017 seem like just the other day and yet also many years ago now. I do hope any of you readers out there or followers still feel inspired in someway. If there are some topics you’d like me to discuss, shoot me a note. I’ll do my best to answer in a way that works. I just might choose your question to answer in a future post!
The other part of me gets frustrated as we all do at times. This is probably why I couldn’t be an author who continuously puts books out there like a few people I know. Too much pressure and I get way too attached. Expectations are one of the hardest things to let go in life and yet we must about many aspects. It’s actually included as one of the agreements with the “Toltec“. It isn’t listed by itself but is part of the beliefs. Miguel Ruiz wrote a great book called : “The Four Agreements” on this as well… I highly recommend it… You can look that up. Anyone who puts content out into the world wants and needs support. We want it genuine and not just because you are in an elite group or under some kind of obligation. I bet most of my readers are either spiritual or maybe wrestling and Ultimate Warrior fans but not all. Some are just bloggers. Guess I don’t really know since rarely do I receive feedback. I need to let that go… Back when I started, I did follow a few other bloggers of similar interests. Some in turn would follow me and it was nice. It was getting to be too much for me and I scaled back. That’s OK as reading isn’t for everyone. I just ask that whatever you do, do it for the RIGHT reasons and not just because.￼..
It’s also like when you are in a private social media group or something similar. I am part of an Ultimate Warrior facebook group and as great as it can be, it also brings more frustrations my way. This post seems so negative but guess sometimes we all need to rant. I DO appreciate anyone who has found my work, really I do but with anniversaries, comes other thoughts too.￼ Warrior was all about honesty, right? Well, today you get to hear it for me. It’s not ALL what you might be thinking but here goes. I have often said how I don’t “fit” in with many ways of doing things but nowadays, it benefits me not to. I do have my days just like many of you where we still want to be our original warrior selves and yet that longing is still there to belong more. I should say: “F*** what others think” like Warrior said but I can’t entirely. I will continue doing the work though.￼
I’m not about a huge U.W. collection, selling merch, pics of meeting him, and all that. I share differently as many know. Without contributing that way, does it matter? Do I make a difference? Sometimes my “Ms. Resistance” kicks me in the a**! We all want those shared interests, likes, and conversations but still want to keep being ourselves. They can have that but would I be missed? Probably not. It’s not a pity party although it sounds like one, I know 🙄. I’m just being honest and real here. Maybe many are jealous of my work and spiritual connection to Warrior… Hard to tell. I answer enough but it might not be what others want. Did I know Warrior or even Ultimate Warrior? I did not and yet there is more to that statement…. So, that’s not good enough of an answer but privacy he had to a degree as do I. We must all in our own way. I realize there are “trolls”and we need to accept that. Let’s lift one another up with the GOOD!
A million thanks to the REAL ones out there genuinely interested in what I present and how I present it. I do appreciate YOU for taking the time to like, follow, or even respond. I realize it is difficult posting an email out there but other ways are available. I just want to know if any of this over the last 6 years connects or motivates you at all? I’m not asking for you to go get the book or anything but just drop me a line or two of how these writings or my stories impact your life. It’s not too much to ask really but again expectations make this life challenging. These past 6 years have truly amazed me as there are days I still can’t believe it is true… 🏻
I may not reciprocate always but know I do try my best along with videos to respond. My goal is to serve but to also learn along the way as we all should do. You don’t have to have or do this type of work but we all have social media so think about it. If my stuff isn’t for you, that’s perfectly fine as others don’t interest me either. If you do though, I will notify you and I have to several people. To those who have reached out, I give you such praise for having the courage to do so. I’m not mad or asking for tons of support, just a little more. If anyone takes this the wrong way, that’s your emotion…
So, I have reflected enough on this milestone but wanted to just embrace these past 6 years in a new way. Let’s all just be US but let another know their life counts. We all do. Frustrations will come and go but we still need to be passionate no matter who responds. I will need to remember this… ❤️🩹 THANK YOU Warrior for being your honest self and for supporting me in sharing all these writings with the world… I’m sure I’ll be back to my ol’ warrior self next week.￼… you can bet on that! 🥰
P.S. I was recently in this store and saw a cake candle I liked it so picked it up. Noticed it was made in Indiana and was selling for $6. No, I didn’t buy it! 🕯That fits for today, doesn’t it? Oh, and when I took the photo for this blog, the time on my phone said 11:11. Very perfect spiritual number.￼ 💖😉 one more note~ I started this blog on a Tues. back then and the anniversary fell on a Tues. this year… 🥳
