A Genuine Trust πŸ’™πŸ’™#25

If any of you were here with me last week, remember how I said there would be another milestone? Well, here it is. Those two great men you see in that photo were part of WrestleMania XII which was 25 years ago TODAY. These Wednesdays, I tell ya… more will be coming so I hope you fans stick around! I’m not analyzing their quick squash match back in 1996 but getting to the heart here which was genuine trust. I know it wasn’t there all those years ago but slowly grew along with their relationship. That trust enabled both to work together and get the Ultimate Warrior in the WWE HOF where he belonged.

Many times I thought to write about Warrior and Triple H and then the idea got table turned. Destiny called and I listened. Now, it is time on their anniversary date so how fitting that I waited. I know Triple H has kept Warrior’s Ambassador Agreement personally and I am so grateful he shared it in the book: “A Life Lived Forever.” Also, so very ultimately grateful he worked tirelessly along with Steve Wilton to get the Ultimate Warrior’s legacy preserved in the WWE Universe.

I’ve mentioned before how I also had and sometimes continue to have trust issues. Many of us do but all for different reasons. Warrior was hurt and betrayed many times in his life so trust was very difficult for him. With his estrangement from Vince and company, it made sense. To us fans, Triple H was our hero! To Warrior, he was Paul forging a genuine trust that would indeed become ultimate.

With many relationships of mine that I truly desired, I was Triple H. (aka Paul) Sometimes, it would work well but then other times, the person opposite wouldn’t connect at all. Have you been on either side? I know better now and realize some relationships aren’t meant to be or even are irreparable. Those men worked at it and eventually got to the place they both wanted and needed. It doesn’t always happen that way for many of us. I’ve had to end relationships that pained me to do so. Often times I’d wonder if the other person was as upset as I was. This of course can be with family, friends, co-workers, or romantic partners.

I tried racking my brain to think of a time when someone truly kept fighting for me when I didn’t fight back. Ya know- when I’d be like Warrior was with Triple H and not returning the calls, emails, texts, or any communication. I honestly couldn’t even think of one time, not one. Yes, my husband would do this always ( fight for me) and maybe birth family could be obligatory for some but outside of those, nobody. I’m not saying this out of pity but just for the mere fact that we all have those more dominant traits or strengths. I can be stubborn too but usually am more of the fighter for people than they are for me. Times have changed of course and I do know a few that would have my back now.

Warrior did not want any relationship with WWE whatsoever but deep down, he was too hurt to admit that his career should be acknowledged. They just had to tell the right story and lots needed to happen getting that done.

Have you ever fought hard for someone that forged a genuine trust? It’s such a hard word as we put ourselves out there every single time. We need that middle once again of not trusting everyone and not trusting anyone. Relationships are a tug of war as both need to give and take on that rope which ties us into the ring of life. Once trust is started, it needs to keep going until it strengthens. Warrior was great at pushing his body to keep going but needed to push his emotions to keep going too.

I could’ve used a photo from their “controversial” WMXII match but always loved this one of just two friends hanging out. I hope you agree. I didn’t use it to be sad because we can’t dwell there. That’s affected me enough and in more ways than I will ever share. A genuine trust was finally made many years later as both men become allies. Can you say that about another? That’s tough to think about if you’ve never been in a situation similar. The other part of this equation is of course forgiveness. Warrior was able to do that during WMXXX weekend with many as it should be. I for one KNEW his HOF speech would not be bashing or criticizing extremely at all. Yes, his family was there but guess I just thought differently. Hopefully, 18 years would do that for any of us.

If you have genuine trust that became strong after both agreed to forgiveness, I am proud of you. Those men got to a good place together and I am extremely humbled all the time with that memory. HAPPY 25th WMXII ( other matches too!) Let’s be better by always building that genuine trust with others thru forgiveness. We are all worth fighting for. Your heart will tell you so. Keep the good ones like Warrior and Triple H did. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ»

P.S. I happened to find some videos from “Dayz with Jordan the Lion” who does travel vlogs. He was always a fan of Warrior’s and shares footage of where the gym was in AZ. He gets to go inside as it is now a bagel shop. No spoilers but some items are preserved!

*** He also visits the hotel area where Warrior passed. Emotional for sure. πŸ’” *** Another video is him traveling to CA where the old Gold’s Gym was located. Sting co-owned it and that was where he and Warrior worked out. It’s now a huge auto parts store.

Here is the link to Warrior’s old gym: https://youtu.be/2GA6xgRnS80 *** 19:33 in length.

P.P.S. We are going on a little vacation over Spring Break here but stay tuned for more milestones when I return!

The Kid in Us πŸ“šπŸ˜‰πŸ“½

Wake up Sleeping Beauties!”

~~~ Warrior began a video with that profound statement as I just froze thinking of my Sleeping Beauty references. πŸ‘‘πŸ˜΄He was talking about getting physically disciplined of course but the Disney animated movie and him have something in common. They were both “born” in 1959. I have said that before but it does link them and I together in a way…

We are all just kids at heart really. Remember how you loved hearing the same bedtime story over and over again as a kid? How about playing your favorite game multiple times until you won? Maybe you have these memories also with your own children or like me when teaching little ones. They like their routines just like we do. As adults, we like many things too– including comic books and movies ( look above!)

Did you like something or come to love it as a kid and still do? You die hard wrestling fans will understand although I wasn’t super young. This is the same idea with movies, books, or anything really at all. The wrestlers have their brand of familiarity with music, gear, moves, and slogans but so do those classics we know too well. Not exactly the same but am sure you get what I mean.

Sleeping Beauty has always been my favorite Disney Princess. Both my sisters liked Cinderella but I had reasons for making Princess Aurora my fave (: First, she had an actual mom! None of the other princesses of her time could say that. Also, pink roses are another favorite and she was Briar Rose with the fairies. My sister gave me a music box years ago as that pic made an appearance in the “Creative Collections” post. I even dressed up as S.B for Halloween at work one year and surprised my niece on her birthday with wig on my head and tiara in place! In second grade, it was my go to book on the shelf for silent reading time and years later, I found it again at one of my preschool jobs. If things come back, it’s meant to be- right? I guess that applies to Warrior as well…

Thanks guys for staying with me as that was a little bit “girlie.” It is all me though!! I found this info out too. Stephanie McMahon must also love Sleeping Beauty since she and Triple H’s oldest daughter is named Aurora Rose. She’s the same age as my girl! How about that?

So, warriors what childhood items or favorites have brought the kid out in you? I still love comic books and remember reading so many of my parents when I was younger. There was Archie, Looney Tunes, Little Lulu, Fantastic Four, and many others I can recall. Archie was the best for me. So glad Warrior was able to put his ultimate mark on the comic book industry with his own stories. I mentioned comic books also with the collections post. We do have those things that stay with us forever as favorites whether in childhood or adulthood.

I bet you even watch your favorite movies over again or classic reruns of old T.V. shows. I sure do. It does bring out that kid in us with liking our stuff the way we like it and our reaction is always the same. We laugh, we cry, we still respond as if we’re seeing it for the first time. That’s how kids are. Nothing ever seems to get old or boring to them because it’s theirs. It’s comfortable and makes them feel secure and us adults do that too.

We may think those attitudes should be left in childhood but nah, they stay with us. You can probably answer that more personally for yourself . I for one NEVER get bored with my Ultimate Collection DVD as I truly thought it might be tiring a few years back. I decided to never question my kids again with watching the same episodes of certain shows while laughing in hysterics! 🀣 I do the same thing. Kids, adults, it really doesn’t matter sometimes. Sure, it may not be a big deal to others who don’t understand but we need to have fun with this life of ours.

Don’t get me started with music and all my songs. Quite another topic that ignites kid memories, teen ones, and now adult experiences. Check out my book Spirit and Belief for more on that! We may start with something so innocently as a child but then it truly does stay forever etched in our hearts.

“Once Upon a Dream” will be with me as this Sleeping Beauty is now fully awakened!! Happily Ever After is what we make it to be. Get out your movies, comic books, or anything that matters to you and be that kid again. It’s o.k. even as a grown-up…
