From a W to 2 Bโ€™s, Thank You! ๐Ÿ’™โœ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ“—

It is October warriors. ๐Ÿ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.๏ฟผ..

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.๏ฟผ 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.๏ฟผ

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 ๐Ÿ™„. 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… ๐Ÿฅน๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป

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… โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน 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.๏ฟผ… you can bet on that! ๐Ÿฅฐ

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! ๐Ÿ•ฏThat 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.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰ one more note~ I started this blog on a Tues. back then and the anniversary fell on a Tues. this year… ๐Ÿฅณ

Gotta get a Gimmick ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ฒ

We are back to Warrior pics these last two weeks of September and I haven’t used a black-and-white one in a long time. This one is so similar to the WCW/NWO magazine cover I used a few years back when Warrior unleashed OWN in 1998. I decided to look up some photos and this pose was chosen. So hard to believe I have never used the word gimmick in a post, not ever. Yes, I had to check on that to make sure but an idea came to me. I was listening to a podcast and of course that word of gimmick comes up when talking about wrestling. The Ultimate Warrior had his gimmick as did others which does continue today just in a different way.๏ฟผ

They knew back then how getting a gimmick would take you far in the business but actually, we all need one. Yes, you read that right. Have you looked up what it means? There are several definitions but the most obvious is doing something that stands out or makes an impression. It usually involves a business or product more but we can have our OWN gimmick too. No, you don’t need to paint your face, run around, or anything else the character of U.W. did. What makes YOU stand out though? Some may not truly want to but we all need to be remembered for our unique brand of intensity. We want to bring it all to the squared circle that is our life.๏ฟผ

Gee, let’s see here. Our gimmick is our personality but it can be so much more. If one is going for fame, it gets amped up and expands into a lot but for regular folks~~~ it sounds intimidating. It’s not a word I use to describe someone as I’m sure you don’t either. Beyond a personality, it’s all in how we convey it to others but also in our attitude behind it. There are many traits that make up one’s gimmick so to speak. We as fans know several facets of the Ultimate Warrior that contributed to his gimmick which in turn made him successful. He even had some attributes that other guys didn’t but the opposite is true too. If you are unaware, just look him up. You can find plenty out there.๏ฟผ

In these last several years, my gimmick would be writing. Believe it or not, I don’t share everything and despite some stories that are seemingly extroverted~~~I really am not. Extroverts will do much more to publicize a gimmick which is a natural fit to them. Some of us work in a different way which seems like we are really selling that gimmick but not doing everything. Let’s say being on most social media sites for example. That just isn’t me and it doesn’t bug me one bit. Sure, I could do so much more but for now, this is who I am. Will it change over time? Possibly and there’s that word of last week again but it’s all in how we project that gimmick to the world. For all those “out of the loop” about Warrior, no he was not an extrovert even though it could seem that way. I wrote about that too.๏ฟผ..

Over the years, your gimmick will evolve with the times as creatively you see fit. Look at Warrior. He advertised his gimmick all over from trunks, kneepads, dusters, hats, and any other gear. It then moved into some of his business ventures outside of wrestling like his gym, comic books, speaking, writing, or even artwork. Still has gimmick but just presented in various ways. Most of us will never have those items as part of our gimmicks but think of how else you can present yourself and how it can work in your life. You gotta get one and make sure it sticks. I guess if you are a pro wrestler, you can and possibly will have several. Many performers come to my mind that switched their looks or even aspects of the character around. Their gimmick might’ve gotten rebranded in a way but it still worked. We have our favorite of theirs but it’s them who decides how the “new” gimmick gets out there.๏ฟผ

The risk is always around though when trying to change or improve an existing gimmick. You may lose fans, money, or even a project idea if it isn’t recognizable enough and others can’t relate. We do need to expand despite those possible risks but again, the cost is up to you. Warrior lived with his consequences and had said he didn’t have regrets. It’s difficult saying the same but there will always be lessons, not failures. You are in control of how your gimmick goes and if it goes well.๏ฟผ

Some may say the gimmick of Ultimate Warrior waned but others always loved it as evidenced by many fans all over the world. Yes, there were those “squash” matches that became iconic with U.W. getting a crowd pop and then letting his gimmick take over. That’s how he wanted to do it but then again, his major feuds with opponents would usually be a much longer match that played out a great storyline. When I looked up more on gimmicks, pro wrestling was listed first among a few other sports. This makes total sense as their in ring persona defines how they are viewed by an audience and in turn accepted or not. Gimmicks can range also in terms of heel/ face, comics, (like Ultimate Warrior!) horror, (I think Undertaker!) ethnic, or so many more. Vince was always contributing to a character’s gimmick with mainstream culture and what was popular at the time.

I know you all that are wrestling fans recall many gimmicks of then and now as it is such a part of sports entertainment. I will always remember mine from the Golden Era and even today, laughter comes when thinking of some! Let’s all get a gimmick and work on it. It’ll go over with some but maybe not all. Keep the fans who love your gimmick as there is a reason why they do. I always loved the Ultimate Warrior gimmick despite never fully knowing his other wrestling personas. I know he likes mine too (: Get your OWN and continue doing the work, the right audience will be there.๏ฟผ

***P.S. Don’t be confused by this post today. Warrior used his U.W. gimmick for certain aspects in his life but our TRUE gimmicks go deeper than anything one could put out there publicly. Know that. You are more than a gimmick. You have one but remember to be MORE than what it is.๏ฟผ.. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธHave that self- belief and discipline as your guide which will make your gimmick truly WORK…

Remember Me Asโ€ฆ

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 mine๐Ÿ˜‰ …, 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. ๐Ÿคฌ 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…๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™

Desire to Inspire โšก๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ

When thinking of this week’s title ๐Ÿค”, 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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. ๐Ÿ’™ 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. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป 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?
