Remember Me As…

BEWARE of my EMOTIONS on this.

Hey there readers… Maybe some of you are aware of the vlogs Warrior put out around 2008 so I decided to use a photo from one of them. You can easily access these thru YouTube and there are many where he discussed various topics. Some of it is business related but some are controversial in nature where he shares his opinions as always. Feel free to watch on your own as I like to share other types of work he made public. Do I agree with everything he says all the time? Unless you are new here, you know that answer which is a no however that moves us into today’s topic.

Remember Me As… Warrior would want to be remembered most as being an innovative, inspirational guy who took his abilities to another level while motivating others. Not gonna use the word intensity of a few weeks ago. Of course, being a Dad was his greatest gift but getting that confidence to truly be himself and believe is what I remember most. Yes, we mainly know him as the Ultimate Warrior but he always wanted to be known as more and in some ways he was. I can for sure say what he would NOT want to be remembered as but we all tend to bring on some drama and suffer consequences. We want to be remembered for the good we do and not for others to focus on the bad which they seem to quite often. Do you share every little detail of your life? I bet you don’t but with fame, some believe your life is an open book. It is not and shouldn’t be. If you want to read a book, read mineπŸ˜‰ …, Warrior had mentioned on the “Ultimate Collection” DVD how he wanted his character remembered which equated with the physicality he created. As a man though, he wanted to be remembered in other areas of his life as us fans know.

Excuse me a minute while I climb on top of the ol’ soap box once again. You may disagree with me on this but let’s get into the celebrity angle just a bit more. Yes, fame has its share of sacrifices, hard work, and being remembered. We will all have our own memories of those that are or were famous. Some stories are still talked about today in regards to celebrity deaths. They are people too just choosing a different lifestyle. Don’t you think they want others to remember the good about them just like us regular folks? Of course but then there are others.

***BIG SIGH*** plus some other expletives I can’t write here. 🀬 Switch roles for a minute. If you were that famous celebrity and you passed, what then? Your family will be grieving your loss a long time and you still want to protect them. Would you honestly want the media digging up any little piece of “dirt” they can find to prove a point? Your family would be drug thru the mud and you as a spirit, are watching. I understand all about honesty and Warrior was very much so but private is another word he was all about, especially later in his life. He had mentioned this over and over again.

With him being private, people would sometimes assume the worst and jump to conclusions. We do this to others too. People also assume they have a right to know everything about a famous person and if they don’t find that “dirt,” there’s a cover-up. Warrior’s HOF weekend and his passing are continuously marked by rumors, speculations, and such but NONE of that will bring him back. He was too proud to let anything get in the way of enjoying that weekend despite ugly naysayers thinking some plotted against him. Many will also attest to the fact that newer additional merchandise is just the WWE profiting too much from Warrior’s passing. They wanted to make amends and did but then again, business is business. It isn’t for me to totally expand upon but they’ll try to sell whatever works. It’s up to us as fans to respond so that’s on all you collectors. You can buy what you like, I’m not judging.

Despite this that never seems to go away concerning Warrior’s life, career, and passing we NEED to remember the GOOD people and we should always. We all make mistakes but respect still needs to be given. Warrior wants all of us to live our lives without going over all the intimate details of his. Some of you may say: “No way, we need to know the whole truth if it’s the last thing we do!” Well, the truth is we won’t and shouldn’t. He discussed knowing “the full story” on the DVD but his physical passing is not the same as details on the character he portrayed as U.W. Will knowing more about a famous person such as Warrior really help you find that peace? Maybe but he wants so much more from his fans. I hope you all know this but some may never come to that conclusion. It doesn’t mean to forget about him or anything he did but just to live your life as an inspiration to others without obsessing in a way over another’s.

Whatever “comes out” once again about Warrior, I just hope others look at it in a new way. We may never truly accept but sometimes, privacy wins that match. It DOES matter which was the subject with a few of his videos only about something entirely different. I agree with those that respect privacy because that could be your family which needs it. I will always remember the Ultimate Warrior or Warrior as being passionate and creative among other things. He put much into his short life here for all of us to remember but let’s not dwell on the resentful and bitterness of every little piece of dirt. Honor his legacy with the real truth which is goodness and privacy. We all deserve this whether famous or not. Remember Me As…What will your answer be? -Soap box put away now…

P.S. I can talk about this a long time but as a warrior, I need my privacy and you should too.

P.P.S. Warrior said this in a WWE video about his character: “It’s o.k., you keep it, it’s yours and we’ll be alright… you know.” ~ Keep the GOOD always…πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’™

Desire to Inspire βš‘οΈπŸ’«

When thinking of this week’s title πŸ€”, I was reminded of a mantra from my journal in June. “Desire to Inspire” has a great bell ring (ding, ding, ding…) doesn’t it? You have to believe it though… Warrior said over and over again how he truly wanted to inspire, motivate, and educate others. He continued searching for ways to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Isn’t that what we all should do too?

Whether one liked or disliked the Ultimate Warrior character, he did become quite the inspiration for so many with his confidence, discipline, and beliefs. We need to look at the WHY of inspiration. Like I’ve said before, you look for inspiration but be that for others as well. Most won’t flock to T.V. as a way for inspiration but we can notice those little things everyday.

Three people have stood out for me personally as being inspirational lately. It’s not always our words but also actions and a desire for the good. Earlier this year, two inspiring souls reached out to me through my website and email. I will keep their names private but they contacted me personally as we shared common interests.

I had a phone conversation with this woman about celebrities or famous people in spirit. We bonded over our experiences while offering advice. She also read my book Spirit and Belief and loved the stories! We both especially referenced The Mysterious Batteries. πŸ˜‰ She truly was an inspiration having enough guts reaching out to a stranger. We had many similarities yet differences which connected our beliefs and abilities.

The second connection was from someone who is a bodybuilder and found a few of Warrior’s YouTube videos. He had no idea that man was the same person he idolized as a child back in the WWF days. He shared details while complementing Warrior on being HIS inspiration. Both people thanked me for being the voice they are intimidated to be on their own. We all have that desire to inspire and it’s a wonderful gift expressing however it suits you.

There are so many ways to look at inspiration. It’s all communication in any form. The Ultimate Warrior had his loud, intense way but perhaps that approach isn’t quite you. Writing works for me but again, your choice.

Face to face discussions are the best of course but that might be difficult for some. Do you work best with phone calls, email, text, or other social media outlets? I love making YouTube videos but that can be a challenge at times. The desire needs to be there. We also need to practice listening with inspiration as that is a two-way street. Even though both of those individuals I had not met, I listened and then responded humbly. They both contacted me so the desire became about respect along with that inspiration.

The third person was a totally different experience. My husband was in the process of selling his mother’s home near her passing and took this big task on. After a time of some interest, he was contacted by a mutual friend thru Facebook. His brothers and he were struggling and I just sent out an S.O.S. to the Universe for patience and guidance. Lo and behold, it delivered.

This man we found out later is indeed a Joe of all trades. His name is Joe and besides being a realtor, had done many other jobs. When carpet got wet, he replaced it for a smaller fee than a company and even went above and beyond to help these boys out. His own brothers knew my husband in high school so there was a connection…

Here’s the part some of you will love. He used to be a pro-wrestler!!! I did get to meet him as those goose bumps filled my arms and legs. Hello Warrior. πŸ’™ Joe was in the NWA and wrestled under the name Vladimir Markov. Yep, they made him Russian! Look him up for more info… Pretty cool, huh? He knew of the Ultimate Warrior and many other names I mentioned. My husband told him how I talked with Dana Warrior on her podcast! It was so thrilling(: Later on, my husband said how Joe was a Godsend as I KNOW someone up there likes us and sent help. πŸ™πŸ» Joe was such an inspiration helping out without huge demands and being so understanding with our needs.

My three count again even without Warrior on this list. Desire to Inspire and look to the real reasons of intent.

Be a voice but encourage another to use theirs.

Get noticed but notice others as well.

Maybe you yell, email, or sell houses but whatever your task, just have true desire. The inspiration will come. Find your WHY always…

P.S. A few of Warrior’s YouTube videos are called: “Injections of Inspiration.” How about that?
