Time for Transitions ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’Ž

I really shouldn’t be writing today at all but I am. The reason being is that it is my (our) 20th wedding anniversary. ๐Ÿ’• Guess I’m sharing this day with Warrior writings, imagine that. ๐Ÿฅฐ Don’t think one of these Wednesdays has ever been a milestone in my life, just Warrior’s. Another first as I continue. I have a personal birthday milestone coming up in a month but it doesn’t fall on a Wednesday!๏ฟผ

That pic you see of Warrior was from a promo he made after “Macho King” Randy Savage cost him to lose the heavy weight belt to Sgt. Slaughter at the Royal Rumble of 1991. This led up to WMVII’s “Career Ending” match between Warrior and Randy. If you give this one a listen or know of it at all, Warrior mentions “the 15 stitches in the top of my head” incurred as a result of that scepter hitting him “unconscious” so he loses the belt. I love how he mentions a crystal that the doctors left in. So dramatic indeed as a reminder of “Macho King’s” kingdom but also a reference to a piece of the WWF title that had belonged to both of them at one time. I have worked with REAL crystals as part of my spiritual practice for years. They are very powerful. That is of course if you believe in all that which I do. I did save that promo but not just for the crystal reference, ha ha.๏ฟผ

That brings us to this title of transitions today. Warrior didn’t mind that transition of losing the belt to Sarge as he wasn’t about having one all the time. That was easy for him as some things in all of our lives are not that hard transitioning to. Me, well– that word itself is HARD in my life but accepting it and evolving we must all do. My son is transitioning to college in just a few days for a full week of band camp before classes officially begin. That day is jam packed with lots of other stuff-believe it or not so no time to dwell until later on when it will HIT me. Yes, we will see him soon enough but not daily and I need my warrior strength to get me through.๏ฟผ

We all have those transitional times in our lives that are such biggies and as parents, it’s a constant watching our kiddos grow. This has definitely been a HUGE milestone year for me but as a warrior, I battle on like we all need to do. How do you handle those transitory times in your life? I bet some are pretty easy but then the big decisions require more thought and emotion for sure. I had a simple transition from marriage and then motherhood as those were goals I was very prepared and ready to take on. Plus, a career before hand which I strived for and loved. That went into marriage briefly but not mothering.๏ฟผ

I can mention the WWF transitioning from Hulk to Warrior but that’s been brought up enough so I’ll let that be. Oh, many professional and personal things that were part of Warrior’s life that he had to transition into and some of course we will never experience but look at your own. What’s been the hardest to do and why is it that way? The easy stuff comes and goes in the blink of an eye but some linger and take much longer. I’ve mentioned before about Warrior making his transition to “parts unknown” as that is our biggest on Earth when those life lessons are done. Not to dwell on sorrow so let’s go to the joy. Despite negative parts of our transitions, we can and will get to the good eventually.๏ฟผ

These past few years have especially been in transit for me in many ways from being scared and unsure to finding answers and relief. I believe our entire lives are filled with constant transitions really but at times, we need space to just relax and breathe. If you have a hard time doing anything else, remember that breath inside you which gives you life every single day. Warrior said this often. Besides that, another factor we need is rest. Yes, that was extremely hard for Warrior to do and I was never a napper much either. Transition for sure. I take naps sometimes now as my body tells me when they are needed.๏ฟผ

Even little things like breathing and resting we take for granted and never think those would concern us. Well, our lives all take different turns and despite my objections, was told I needed to be mindful in order to heal. Transitions are hard warriors but fighting them means they stick around. What we resist, persists. Have you heard of that? It’s true. Most of us don’t get what we truly need but we try all the time or at least we should anyways. Not sure if Warrior was ever a napper much (probably not) but he came around over the years to being more aware of the little stuff that amounts to the big. I do believe he was always knowing in many aspects but got those chances with time to slow down in a different way. Maybe it wasn’t our way of slowing but it was his and he transitioned like he needed to.๏ฟผ

That’s it for now warriors as I transition to whatever else this day of my 20 years of married life brings. I already meditated and used some crystals so that’s my slowing down and breathing time. Warrior doesn’t need a crystal to be in his kingdom. He shines brighter than any diamond as a spirit all the time. Let’s move through all our transitions the best we can. Remember to BREATHE and always REST…

Then and Nowโ€ฆ ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿปโ˜บ๏ธ

How is it August already? This summer is going way too fast but guess when you’re crazy busy, it does. The topic today is so broad as it really applies to anything in our lives, doesn’t it? A million ideas come to mind for me but let’s concentrate on gee– I dunno, maybe meeting a famous person? Yeah, that works. I guess I was thinking of fans that possibly met the Ultimate Warrior when young (or any other celebrity) and then got another opportunity many years later. I know there are plenty of you out there and what a huge thrill that must be! Treasure those times… Oh, I didn’t come up with this title based on WWE’s slogan at all.

I would always wonder about those little boys or maybe girls who would get that chance and as adults, get another. Lucky ducks indeed! I have so many questions about their feelings then and now. When we are younger, we tend to just go with our parents and all is innocent. We’re just around but don’t truly know more about life, careers, education, and all that until we age. I’m sure several people had related to Warrior their chance encounters as youngsters and then seeing him again overtime with much that had changed. Back in the day, I’m sure it was extremely rushed meeting someone, getting an autograph, posing for a pic, and all that. Maybe today is still somewhat similar but fans definitely have much more time to interact with their favorite. The pressure of that career is over and it’s more on their own time. They aren’t feeling time moving quickly getting to another event so it matters more. I’m speaking of those not actively in their profession so much anymore.๏ฟผ

That takes me into another similar topic of just approaching something differently as an adult compared to a kid. This still irks me… ๐Ÿ˜ก 10 years ago as a wonderful early 40th birthday present, my husband fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams that was to swim with a dolphin! ๐Ÿฌ I couldn’t believe how excited I was. We headed out to Seaworld in San Diego, CA for a really great trip that remains one of our favorites today. Then and now. My day had finally come and I have the photos to prove it! The group consisted of me and some young girls with a dad. It was a 12th birthday present for one of them so we had that in common. It started out great until those 12 year old attitudes came in. I get it, I was that girl once but NEVER would I ever complain at any age for an unbelievable experience like this.๏ฟผ

The water is too cold, the wetsuit itches, it’s taking too long for my turn, WHAT? I literally wanted to clothesline both of them! I wanted my time with the dolphin to be longer of course but it’s all so rushed yet again… Their parents just spent money and time planning this huge event for them and they did not even seem the slightest bit grateful at all. This clearly was not a group I wanted to be in but had to suck it up as I’m sure Warrior would say. Wait, he DID say that but oh, another story that was… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe now those girls appreciate that time in their lives better or perhaps got to swim with a dolphin again, who knows? They were typical preteens but if dolphins don’t fully interest you, why do it? UGH, it just gets to me but it does connect with meeting someone famous as kids may not fully GET IT in the same way as adults which is understandable. Although, sometimes us adults act like those kids when interacting with someone in fame.

I have always said I’m grateful I was older when pro wrestling invaded my living room instead of just saying: “Yay, my favorite is on!” and that’s about it. No doubt kids would be devastated when something “bad” would happen to their guy (as it was then) so in that respect again, glad I was older. Even being a teen, I still was affected as some of you readers know but not in the same way as a young child would be.๏ฟผ

Then and now. Boy, is that true for me~~~ especially regarding Warrior. I honestly can’t say for sure how I would’ve been having met him as a younger version of myself. I’d probably have been so introverted or wanting to hide as he would place his really large hand in my small one or reach out to hug. Can you say blank stare or no words? ๐Ÿ˜ณ There’s always so much we want to say but can’t. How about that teen girl who did follow? She would’ve been a little different that’s for sure. I’d be having that smile that doesn’t go away while trying to remain calm. ๐Ÿฅฐ The heart would be pounding (that’s happened too only in other ways… I digress) but this time words would come out of my mouth. I never even saw Ultimate Warrior perform but thinking more, my brother probably wouldn’t have wanted to sit anywhere near me! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

So, warriors~~~ what does your then and now look or feel like? Are there parts of you that would be exactly the same? I bet there are but we all grow in ways where our wiser selves respond differently. I think someone out there should make a few videos about this then and now concept with those celebrities including Warrior. Yes, I’ve seen a few in his videos but there are tons I know! Whatever your then and now is, keep those precious memories and pretty soon you’re now will become the next then.๏ฟผ..

*** P.S. Most recently, the facilitator of my book club decided to move back to Florida to be with some family. We had a small party for her and I will truly miss this Spiritual Earth Mother of mine. The night after the party, I had woken up in bed like I usually do around 3 AM. All of a sudden a few songs were in my head, one we sang that night. I immediately broke out in sobs laying in my bed. She obviously means a lot to me or we may have some kind of spiritual connection. I hadn’t cried like that in 8 years since Warrior had passed. You can read more about her story this week over at my other blog of: Spirit and Belief called: “A Heartfelt Goodbye.”

*** That site is also the title of my book which explores my beginnings in wrestling, psychic terms explained in a fun way, dreams, family stories, AND of course my spiritual connection to Warrior. His energy brought out my intuitive gifts so please check it out if interested. It’s on Amazon and other book retailers so please leave a review, I would greatly appreciate it. (: ๐Ÿ“—

Buck the System ๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿซต๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

I am coming to you a day early as we have my son’s college orientation day tomorrow so what a busy time that will be… This photo today taken in Spain doesn’t truly connect to the post as some don’t. I like this shot of him calling out Orlando Jordan later on of the NWE back in 2008. Fans know Warrior would buck the system at times for sure but I really wanted to use another word! You can all guess but it’s one Warrior used often so just change a letter.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿคฃ

Oh, so many things come to mind with Warrior going against authority and I’m not listing all of them but thought to share a few of my own as well since that’s what I do. I’ll start with him of years back. He talked about early in his career of several veterans who did not like him running to the ring, shaking ropes, wearing arm tassels or face paint, and all that. Respect was given but since Vince never told him to stop doing those things, he didn’t. Well, my stories aren’t quite the same as they rarely are exactly but I had started out and wanted to do my own thing too.๏ฟผ

I would follow the rules early on as a preschool teacher and really wanted to learn so it was by the book for me. After a bit even as an aide, it was time for me to show my skills off just a little. Flashback to Halloween- October of 1990 and my first big holiday with the kids. I decided to be a black cat since that was super easy putting together. Just like Warrior talking about Dingo being the poor version of Ultimate Warrior, I didn’t have extra money for other things at that time. No rented costume for me as it was mostly a black outfit which had a headband with cut out paper ears. I made a tail and safety pinned it to my pants while adding a painted black nose and whiskers. I was all set except just missing something. It was clear I needed claws and saw some in a Halloween store real cheap. I could put those on before the parade to complete the look.๏ฟผ

It was showtime and I was ready. The directors were there as we started the parade. *** At this time though many miles away, the Ultimate Warrior was also getting ready about a month out for his first WWF Survivor Series as the NEW champ. The Ultimate Warriors versus the Perfect team. What a great era that was! *** Anyways, back to my story. The first parade was a lot of fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Afterwards, I got a talking to though. The boss didn’t agree with my cat claws and mentioned how parents might feel about them. I could not understand this logic. It’s a 10 minute parade and I might be holding a child’s hand but really? I wasn’t wearing them all day. ๐Ÿ™„ They suggested I put them aside for the next parade. Did I listen? Nope. I wore them anyway! So glad they didn’t let me go after only being there a few short months. I bucked the system like Warrior while doing my own thing. Oh, there were sooo many more little incidents like these that I can laugh about today.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿคช

I’m sure all of you have those times where you go against type and just do something anyway. There doesn’t have to be a boss involved at all. I was the sister who moved in with my fiancรฉ 15 months before we were married. Oh no, bucking the system again only this time with family. Gosh, I was a grown woman in my late 20’s. Did I really care what others of a different belief thought? Again for the nope. I would not have agreed unless we were engaged anyway. He wanted me to move-in much earlier than that but I did have my standards.๏ฟผ

Probably the most noteworthy thing Warrior did to buck a system was his name change. I didn’t want to mention something else from his career and your name– well it doesn’t get any more personal than that. Maybe some of you might disagree as now it doesn’t even seem like such a big deal but back then, it was. It was in the wrestling world anyways and it would affect his future family for sure. My daughter always tells me I should legally change mine since I dislike my full name of Kathleen. Boy, that would buck my birth family system now wouldn’t it? My full name is barely on anything legal anymore but it isn’t a priority with me. If I did change it, Warrior and I would have yet another thing in common now, how about that?๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜Š

Whether you find yourself ever bucking the system, be intentional with it. Don’t do it just to spite but because you truly believe in your own cause. We can F*** the system too because as adults, it is our right but you gotta pick those battles. Is every war worth fighting for? You get to decide. I felt mine were from cat claws, living with my fiancรฉ, and even my legal name in a way. I know Warrior believed in all his bucking ways whether small or big. Will you buck the system or stay silent? Sometimes we do both but let’s choose the battle that will win the war we need to win everyday.

P.S. I didn’t have a P.S. this time but after last Friday, I added a BIGGIE… How about Vince McMahon’s retiring? ๐Ÿ˜ณ When my brother told me- I literally thought pigs ๐Ÿท were flying or something…. I wandered around the house saying “WOW!” in my head over and over….. Despite this possibly being a “forced” retirement in a way because of the scandal, I shed some tears. Love him or hate him, (sounds like a Warrior description…) he provided soooo many memorable moments over the years and MANY for me personally back in the day- good, bad, and everything in between…

*** Some are shocked by this while some are grateful. I am sad it had to happen this way but you as fans- need to support the WWE you love. Change is inevitable and good things will come. I am sure Mr. McMahon will still be involved somehow, someway as it is in his blood along with the lineage he passes the torch to.. I won’t comment on his behavior or marital status but I was stunned literally. Vince usually comes out unscathed but now, it is time for the next generation. I can say more but will leave it at this…. Thank you Vince… What a ride of 40 years but like their slogan says:

Then

Now

Forever

Together

Stand Your Ground ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡

Yes, I have mentioned this plenty of times and of course that guy in the photo did a lot but once again, I got to have a ring side seat. Another dream warriors and I’ll share how it came to be. Recently, I found some WWE A & E documentaries and bios. No, I wasn’t truly looking and watch very little but it was my lunchtime so decided to surf some channels. Lo and behold, I ended up watching bits and pieces of a few. It seemed to be Undertaker as the main event. His biography was just shown but I also caught some of the “Most Wanted Treasures” about Jake Roberts of last year. Despite animosity between him and Warrior back then, I’m always so touched by all the realness and emotion shown by these former wrestlers. You all know this about me now.๏ฟผ

So many people interviewed including Bruce Prichard, a.k.a. (“Brother Love”) other talent, family, archivists, and obviously Vince McMahon. I’m not a fan of Bruce’s even though he is one of the top dogs. I also am NOT getting into the scandal concerning Vince but both guys were in this dream along with Warrior and myself. It took place over at WWE HQ with Vince and Bruce pitching some storyline idea to Warrior. His look was probably late 1990. I was nearby as a “liaison” or so it seemed. Whatever this idea was, Warrior did not agree and stormed out. He was getting really angry as they followed him to the dressing room areas.๏ฟผ

Warrior started waving his arms and then picking up trash cans while throwing them around. Don’t worry– nobody was injured. Vince and Bruce just kept their cool and let him rant and rave. They seemed exasperated and wanted him to calm down so then in steps me. As it played out, I was the only one able to get him to listen and relax a little. Wish I could remember what made Warrior stand his ground but whatever it was, he wasn’t having any of it. I put my hands up and got him to breathe a little easier. This isn’t to “paint” him in a negative light at all~~(plenty of others do that) but I’m sure things like this happened, even without cameras and with others. Vince and Bruce went back to the office as they knew I could work my magic in a way.

I listened to his side while going over all the pros, cons, and compromises this could entail. He looked me straight in the face and said he just could not do what they were asking of him. He stood his ground once again like with many other times. Maybe a similar situation like this actually happened and I was given an inside scoop or something? Well, I’m not sure but I did either grab his hands or put mine on his shoulders. I didn’t want him running off or picking something else up to throw!๏ฟผ

Sorry to keep you all against the ropes but I never found out if he caved just a little or not. Sure hope he wasn’t fired but this next part I do know. Usually during my morning routine, I say the serenity prayer. Words to follow at the end for those unfamiliar. In this dream, I either heard them in my head or said them out loud with Warrior standing there. Hmmm. ๐Ÿค”They were said regardless and Warrior listened to me. So glad I could be of help. No, I wasn’t on the payroll but just very much around and knew Warrior well. Wow, guess a little of those bios came back in my dreaming state. After all, Jake and Paul Bearer (posthumously) were both inducted into the HOF with Warrior and both were part of those A & E shows. Bruce was in a few too. 2014 again. Can you say “goosies” all over my arms and legs? Yep, I can and did.๏ฟผ

It brought to mind when Undertaker’s winning streak came to an end at WrestleMania XXX that same year. First time ever I had seen the crowds reaction– stunned silence with mouths gaping open. Did he stand his ground on this and say: “I want one more win, this year won’t be it for me.” No, he did not and respectfully let the torch pass. There could’ve been many more convos on this but Undertaker obliged. I bet it was extremely hard but was time. Sometimes, it isn’t easy for any of us to do either as it always will depend on those principles too ya know. Warrior did have a right to stand his ground on many things over the years both personally and professionally. We all have to but you need to be the one deciding if it’s worth it or not.๏ฟผ

I actually stand my ground more now when it comes to issues that are about being taken advantage of, being a doormat, or personal days with my family. I even stand my ground with this blog also as we need to be proud of who we are and what we do. Yes, life is about compromise but we all know what we maybe could cave on and what we can’t. That dream contained several messages for me but it isn’t just pride. It can become very exhausting emotionally being kind of like that “liaison” I was in the dream. It isn’t all humbleness and not feeling worthy like it used to be for me at all. OK, I am always humbled but now– more sides have been shown to me and the roles get more intense along the way.๏ฟผ

We do have to stand our ground but need the balance of seeing the bigger perspective if we can. Learning to soften takes time and a whole lotta patience. Warrior may not have caved on important matters but over the years, evolved into better understanding and perhaps bent just a little.๏ฟผ โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน

P.S. I believe this is the first time I didn’t use the word DREAM in a post title for these… Gotta keep some mystery going…,๐Ÿฅฑ๐Ÿ˜ดAnd, Vince in a dream was another first too! Bruce? Um– yeah, well it made sense though.., ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฌ

*** Here is the Serenity prayer:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.๏ฟผ

*** I do not get very religious on here at all so you can sub out the word God with anything else but that’s the prayer. I always heard it was longer but this is the main part…

This Brotherhood of Mine

Me and the boys. Yep. For many fun times it was and I always seemed more comfortable around guys. Dating? Well, that was kinda another post but this one is more about other memories. Sure, sometimes guys bring the egos but girls bring the drama and I never could get into that. Even now with both sides of the family I prefer the company of menfolk. Is that sad? Maybe, but not for me. I have often said how my brother and I were always closer than either sister as we are almost twins and share similar traits. There were other reasons though as we thrived on the silly and not seriousness of some girls.๏ฟผ

Yes, wrestling was funny (for the most part…) when we watched together but there were many more times. I had several cousins close in age and even a few my same age but on some occasions, girls other than me got sorta mean and gossipy. I’d hang with my brother and boy cousin a few years younger. Oh what great stories we have! I laugh since on “The Ultimate Collection” DVD, there is a match from December 17, ( my husband’s bday) 1988 between the Ultimate Warrior and the Honky Tonk Man. The camera pans the crowd and there is this boy with arms raised that could be my cousin’s doppelgรคnger! He looks exactly like him at that age. How was he there and not me, lol?! My brother totally agreed on the resemblance.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ’ฏ

I also used to help some boys cheat on tests in school. One was even the boy who had the Road Warriors on a notebook. You’ll find that story from years ago in my book- Spirit and Belief. We were friends and never got caught. See, I wasn’t the “good girl” all the time! I still am not about some things… ๐ŸคซEven former boyfriends of my sisters I seemed to get along better with than some of the girls. Guess it all started with my girl issues that carried over when it came to trust but we do evolve over time. Some women never outgrow their snobbiness or martyr attitude but that’s been talked about too.

Don’t get me wrong here. I do have some close women in my life but honestly, no “bestie.” I’m not that close with immediate women in my family with very different personalities. I’m the black sheep for sure but am OK with that now. My spiritual cousin and I are very close as she is like the older sister I never had. Maybe I just never felt judged by boys and could be myself. We always have both energies ya know. I’ve never been a “girly” girl but let me tell you, I embrace my femininity big-time more than ever just not in a flashy way. Back in the day, girls would not watch sports or even talk about them. I did have friends in school who played their own sports but professionally on TV was never a topic with them at all. I loved our Cleveland sports teams of football and basketball in the mid 80’s but never had one conversation with another girl ever that I can recall. I have stated this about wrestling as well. My mom actually would watch with my brother and I all about how our Cleveland teams were doing. Dad started WWF but never got into actually sitting and watching the others with us. Never my sisters either. I enjoyed it all. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿคผโ€โ™€๏ธ You’d catch me more at a monster truck rally over a fashion show any day. I like the action and it showed over the years. We took our kids to a monster truck rally a few years back as it was all my idea. Two trucks were actually named “Tombstone” and “Gravedigger.” Guess who I think of on that, ha ha!๏ฟผ

I even enjoy all the superhero movies. Yes, some do involve women as well and I am a sucker for rom-coms but between the movie “Frozen” and let’s say- “The Avengers,” yeah I think you know the answer for me. I know “Frozen” is animated but I always thought if they made a movie like that about sisters, why can’t there be one about brothers? Maybe there is, I don’t really know. ๐Ÿค”When I want to be that GIRL, I sure am in other ways. I can get glammed up and feel pretty but don’t need to live and breathe it always. I’m not out to bash men and never will entirely. Despite women fighting for equality, some are just as nasty as men can be. I believe there are more fake women out there because men are more direct. Sometimes it doesn’t always work in your favor but it all depends on your experiences. Many women I truly admire really and I was shown to tap in to that feminine side more which I have done. Not all women are “cliquey” just like not all men are controlling. We always need that balance of strength and emotion whether we are that guy or gal.

I just seemed to hit it off more with a brotherhood of sorts which explains A LOT now. I remember being picky with some guys but I was afraid of not liking them if they liked me or getting hurt even. With girls it would seem one day they’d be your friend and the next, you didn’t exist. I may never have that elusive female BFF but it’s OK now as I don’t fight it anymore. I am me so that’s that. I would fight so hard for some women but you can’t fight for someone who doesn’t reciprocate.๏ฟผ

I do wish you all friends whether it’s a brotherhood, sisterhood, or any in betweens. We just connect with whoever “gets” us and who truly wants to stick around. Thank you Warrior for always sticking around as he “gets” me for sure. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜‰ I was that GIRL who watched the Ultimate Warrior most definitely but totally understood the guy vibe of the sport back then. We all have our real reasons and I am grateful for mine. Maybe things will change one day but our life lessons teach us to grow as we should. The guys in my life came for a reason just like the girls but my brotherhood gives me such fond memories that the sisters couldn’t. Just be you and don’t fight against it. We are all in this together as brothers and sisters in a way so be comfortable being the warrior you need to be always. We can be competitors but let’s do it in a healthy human way…,

P.S. I am very glad to have talked with a few in Warrior’s “brotherhood” outside of wrestling… it means so much…๐Ÿฅน

It does concern two people as maybe some that are or were WWE fans can probably figure out. To me, the Ultimate Warrior was NOT a “replacement” for Hulk Hogan and I’ll share why. I can be unbiased but you can have your own thoughts too.๏ฟผ

I realize how the business worked. I lived and breathed through it all as a fan but we never saw behind the scenes. I was older as well so understood a little more at that time. Yes, Warrior was groomed to be next in line as the NEW face and eventual NEW champ. I get it, really I do. Sometimes, I chuckle despite some defensiveness since these wrestling topics are STILL talked about today and probably will forever be. Vince did love Warrior for many years in lieu of all their disagreements but I cannot just keep tolerating the word “replacement” in a literal sense. Even some podcasts I enjoy mention this quite frequently and seem to ask every person their opinion. We have to ask everyone ya know! ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซIt’s just so draining since come on, get to something else. They need the ratings and those questions always linger but it’s sad how with the entire history of talent, that is usually front and center.๏ฟผ

Warrior portrayed his character as his OWN and certainly not a replacement even though some just chalk up his career to besting Hogan and that’s it. I realize the torch had to be passed so the WWF back then could build up a new, good guy. Maybe some had feelings Warrior didn’t pull off the Heavyweight reign in the way they wanted but it was money based and who’s filling the seats. I did agree with one guy who stated how quite possibly they could’ve built around “Warrior Wildness” or too bad OWN didn’t exist until yours later. Hulk had Hulkamania and many catchphrases yet Warrior didn’t do anything similar so Vince became a little stuck. Some even blamed it on poor opponents or storylines but still not a replacement to me. The likability factor needs to be there but we just can’t BE exactly like someone else.๏ฟผ

Let’s switch this up to some of us here. Are we all replaceable at work or in a career? Maybe not entirely but overall, you are. Somebody else can get your spot even though you seem to be the best at it. They might not be right now but with time, patience, and training they will be soon enough. There are some who solely believe Warrior was just hired to top Hulk with no personal involvement at all. Did Warrior care at the time? Probably not entirely but we all know how much that changed and yes, I would care too. How would you feel if your coworkers or even boss said you were just hired to replace another without truly taking the time to invest in your skills? WWF did invest in Warrior but he wanted to do the character his way. Maybe you wouldn’t notice so much but me, yep.

OK, those arguing will claim Warrior had little “technical” skills and only got by on charisma and a good physique. You can say that as those worked to his advantage for sure. Many get jobs like that in the non-wrestling world too. We have to take emotion out of it but can we? I can’t which is why I’m not in that business sense but my opinion is just mine. Warrior knew their plan as time went on and had tremendous respect for Hulk as his mentor. We all know this but when it becomes more of you being a number in a way and not a name, that’s where I feel like clotheslining someone! Warrior wanted nothing more than to be himself and fought hard to prove that every day- in and out of the ring. He would never want to be a replacement only as we really shouldn’t either.๏ฟผ

Of course this is very different with one’s personal life but nobody wants to be seen as the R word when it comes to relationships especially. We aren’t just robots doing a job, we do have a mind and heart to consider also. The next best thing could be around the corner and if that’s you, have you earned your place or is it just because someone left or could be? So much to think about for sure and some opinions on this will never change in spite of many discussions. I would thoroughly dislike being thought of only to replace another. We do need a livelihood but at what cost will it take to be enough before we walk away? Warrior left for other reasons but we all become affected in many situations. Respect needs to be on both sides and if it isn’t, there will be problems.๏ฟผ

All right, I did like the Ultimate Warrior for those physical reasons at first but I fought that and learned to see more. Some never do or never did but some still tried. We all need to be someone besides that next big replacement and shouldn’t feel the need to prove ourselves worthy. We all struggle with worthiness and once you know yours, deep down you really do become irreplaceable. Whatever others think, the belief you have in yourself can never be replicated no matter if it’s business or your personal life. Don’t settle for being a replacement if it means sacrificing your integrity. Warrior never did and became so much more than being that next BIG champ. Hogan’s “replacement?” Warrior was never that to me so stop arguing and let’s move on.๏ฟผ..

P.S. I DO admire some of these podcast guys as they do have knowledge of the biz despite being little boys back then. I just wish some convos could be different.๏ฟผ.. sigh..,

Summer Camp and Dress-up Dreams ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘ 

Why, hello there warriors! We had a great time up in the Sand dunes of Northern Michigan but now, it’s back to these writings I share with all of you. I told ya dreams were coming and these are just a two count today. Wait until you read about a summer camp and a dress-up time for us girls. Long title I know.๏ฟผ..

Let’s start with summer camp. It is that season after all here in the U.S. so perfect timing. I’m actually not apologizing for the photo today as I know it’s full of errors. I decided keeping it this way fit since that gear of the Ultimate Warrior was exactly how he looked in this dream. That match was against Randy AGAIN and it was so fast paced. I took the pic when I could as most shots good enough were of his backside and I needed the match- not something from a book, the Internet, or a magazine. OK, now that you know those details, let’s get on with the dream. Oh, I couldn’t find this match on YouTube either.๏ฟผ

I was at my old grade school (yes, once more) only outside in the parking lot waiting for the summer camp teachers to come out. I questioned this later but my kids did attend a camp there a few years which was ages ago AND I had just taken a yoga class outside in a parking lot a few days prior. Those are the connections I get. So, another questionable moment was how I didn’t remember my kids being there so whose kids did I come for? Well, I realized I came to see Warrior as he was a camp counselor and I knew him. Pretty neat. The instructors were all introduced one by one as the lot was decorated with balloons, rainbow pennants, and just tons of fun stuff for the kids.๏ฟผ

Warrior’s group was waiting for him as all these counselors were way back at the entrance. Can you fans see where this is headed? It’s a loooong driveway. Warrior makes his entrance by running (of course) all the way through the lot to where his kids and I are standing. He looked exactly like that photo you see with red, yellow, and blue paint plus gear. EXACTLY. You can watch the match from 2/11/89 on: “The Ultimate Collection” DVD. I suppose he put a shirt on afterwards but that was not included, ha ha! Once the cheering stopped a little, he caught up to the kids all sweaty and hot from running. There was a hose nearby and he began taking a drink. Remember those days- if you are old enough? He then turned the hose on the kids and sprayed them as laughter broke out! He wasn’t gonna soak them as camp needed to start soon indoors but what fun. I got out of the way but it was so cute seeing him like that with these kids. Obviously, he either was still wrestling or had taken a break for the summer camp. That doesn’t matter but I laughed at this dream he gifted me with. We all had an ultimate blast!๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜‚ There was Camp WWE the cartoon several years back so maybe another connector…

The second one involved Dana, me, and our two youngest. My daughter and her Mattie. This was a first in a dream. Never before have I gotten any of our kids together so I take it all. It started with Dana, Mattie, and my girl all trying on different dress up clothes in an attic type area. Huh? What does this mean? I guess the girls were friends as Dana and I must’ve been too. I joined in later since my presence wasn’t part of the beginning. The attic area was off a bathroom in their house which is a little odd but ah well.๏ฟผ

You had to walk through the bathroom to get to the attic. When I arrived, I actually needed to use the bathroom so I went in and closed the door. On the vanity was this plastic bin with lots of hair claw clips. Mostly black. Us girls use those ya know. My real life here, oh my… To back up a smidge, the day before I was listening to: “80’s Wrestling the Podcast” which was all about theme music from the Golden Era. So entertaining and cool, I knew them all! I was wearing this loose bracelet and while dancing and singing (you fans would be too!) it flew off. Oh no, I couldn’t find it anywhere. I looked over and under things while the cat came in my room. She even got riled up by my frantic cleaning. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I thought it had fallen through the air duct where it would be lost forever. My screwdriver was no help as I continued listening to the podcast. I asked for help to no one in particular and it was at that moment when I spotted it. The bracelet was in my basket of claw clips on the dresser. WOW…. I knew that connection right away after waking from this dream. It seemed to end there but we were smiling and laughing together. Two dreams of playful, fun activities with one including another first.๏ฟผ

There you go warriors. Summer camp and dressing up. Warrior in one and Dana in the other. The SAME night. Both with kids and us being kid-like. Maybe I need to play more? I do remember my youngest liking some “pretend” clothes like a few princess gowns, feather boas, tiaras, jewelry, and fancy big girl shoes. She isn’t quite like that anymore as casual fits her style these days. I am remembering hats in the dream too but everything was mixed up in a big box. No idea on the why but I get used to not fully questioning everything anymore. I may not understand all the meanings but these dreams are truly wonderful to me. How exactly they get planned out up in “parts unknown” remains a mystery but sometimes I do get the meanings as many are quite obvious. I always thank Warrior for being part of this all however it works. Dreams have been my “thing” since childhood so it makes sense to me on the validity and vividness.๏ฟผ

I can only imagine the great time those kids had with Warrior as their camp counselor. It reminded me of when he came as a preschool teacher too.., I’m so incredibly humbled but oh so grateful to know more on this warrior journey of mine. Don’t discredit your dreams either like I’ve always said. I’ve had other crazy ones lately too! Must be that June full moon which affects me. ๐ŸŒ• Your life and the people in it matter however they connect to you. So, get out there and PLAY a little. That’s my message so I will pass it on to all of you. Get those zzzzz’s too.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

P.S. I DID have LOTS of stuff happen on Warrior’s birthday, oh my goodness… My Alexa “randomly” was playing in the other room as I had not asked her anything… The song was a Bobby Brown one and not familiar to me but so cool! I had just been on some social media that was Warrior related and was in the house alone..,

~~~I also got a new song while working out that day and as I asked Alexa who sang it- she said the group but got BLEEPED with the title!!!! I could not believe that but just laughed … that was a first..,

~~~ Here’s the three count: I had to make a quick trip to the grocery store and when arriving, the speaker was playing : “Two Hearts” by Phil Collins! Fans will know that connection with Warrior but I tried SO hard not to laugh as the produce guy was nearby.. I kept saying to Warrior how it isn’t my birthday, it’s his! There were a few other moments while waking up that day but will leave it at a 3 count!

Celebrate Your Compliments ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Do you celebrate your compliments? That might sound odd but I bet some of you don’t. What I mean is this: when someone gives you a complement, do you say thank you like we should or do you give some other explanation? Thank you can be hard to say like I’m sorry but I know firsthand how it works. Us “sensitive” folks chalk it up to a coincidence or: “this ol’ thing?” Here’s an example: ” Wow, you look great in that outfit!” Some would respond: “I just threw it together, no big deal.” It’s tough to accept a complement and give thanks back because sometimes we are always the ones giving and not receiving. Perhaps too, we haven’t gotten many compliments overtime so our answers become nervous in nature.๏ฟผ

Here’s another take on it all. Do you complement another expecting something in return? Come on, we are all guilty of this but really just take notice. No expectations, remember? It is a difficult pill to swallow not taking something personally when it affects us negatively but when it is positive, we feel confused. The negative comments we stew over and find hard to forget but the good ones seem to get brushed aside like they don’t matter. THEY DO. You are worthy of them despite being humble which is a lifelong lesson for me that started in childhood. Let’s get into adult situations though.๏ฟผ

I remember being at a summer bonfire party years ago and my friend and I walked over to the barn where the band played. We listened for a bit and then one of the bandmates came over to us. Yes, we had been drinking but just wine coolers which my one wouldn’t have made a difference. I was a smart girl. Anyway, this guy noticed me in my black tight sleeveless shirt so I thought he’d be flirting. I was not ” hit on” very often but he complemented my upper arms. Yep, you read that right. How about that ladies? ๐Ÿซค I had been working out but not using arm weights back then. Maybe today’s girls would love that as fitness has changed so much but I was a little surprised. Um… yeah, thanks I guess. Nothing about anything else but hey, I was proud of my results and didn’t celebrate that too much. He went on to play more sets as I just moved on as well.๏ฟผ

Another memory was many years ago when I was heavier but then slim down. I was making too many “hearty” meals and had added on more weight than I thought. As some may know, this issue has been written about before but slim fast worked plus my “muscle arms”~ ha ha. We were at my sister’s house and her friend noticed my smaller frame. I’m not one to flaunt this type of thing and never posted the weight loss journey on social media. This woman was so complementary and I felt awkward with her being larger but she never seemed jealous at all. I was humbled and overwhelmed. We’ve known each other since teenhood. My mom comes over and after this friend said how great I looked, Mom says: “she doesn’t need to lose any more.” Is that a compliment or just a statement? Very different reaction from me on that which takes us to the next point.๏ฟผ

Now, it’s Warrior’s turn of course. Many probably know all the negative statements said about him over the years which would be SO many but here’s some that are quite common: ( am just paraphrasing on this.) “Yeah, I worked with the guy… he did his gimmick… looked great… got paid well… the fans loved him…” And on and on… O.K. Those CAN be complements and for the most part are but in many of their cases, it was NOT. They are merely just stating facts without stepping on toes so to speak or starting controversy. Yep, I’ve heard it all but it’s been done to me as well, thanks Captain Obvious! ๐Ÿ™„

When I was applying for the second preschool job, my former boss would not say anything specific about my time there. I had quit for various reasons and there was some animosity. Luckily, I had many other references but the boss is the boss. It was just how I had worked there for 6 years having been an aide for 2. Nothing much else but the compliments from others I celebrated for sure. Business is different as people need to protect their own a** so take those real compliments in stride warriors. How about that? I had another three count of examples to share (:

It does involve principles as I’ve stated before but is it harder for you to give a complement or receive one? We do need to choose our words carefully but with Warrior, honesty was what you’d get. There were those he would complement greatly but I’m not sure if they’d appreciate it for what it was worth. Some definitely WOULD but others maybe could’ve cared less what he thought of them and vice versa for sure. It all depends on the person and situation they are in or what deserves a complement. If one earns a complement from you, take it and acknowledge it fully. Some may be direct and not mince words like Warrior had done, so will you be offended? Again, it varies but I for one get tired of “walking on eggshells” around others always thinking everyone will get offended. People will no matter what seems to happen.๏ฟผ

Give and receive those compliments in the right way warriors and celebrate them. You will know when and if they are truly genuine. Stay humble but never think you are not worthy when it’s a job well done. Some may hold high standards but do your best and learn more every day. That’s the lesson of a real warrior.๏ฟผ..

P.S. Happy Birthday to Warrior tomorrow in parts unknown! I usually get “something” so we shall see… I complement you Warrior so celebrate all the GOOD you did.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’–

P.P.S. I have been given many compliments on my work and it’s always so rewarding. I thank all of YOU for contributing to this world in your own unique way.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

My Warrior Painting Therapy ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒฅ๐Ÿ’–

Hello warriors! I am BACK but then in a few weeks we will be on vacation so you get a bit of new posts until then. Miss me? In some ways, this writing break was tough but I was able to concentrate on other things~ like painting. I didn’t share my little journal art which was mostly nature inspired but decided instead to show a painting from 2017. This is called “Ocean Serenity” and it hangs in my home. Have any of you heard of these painting places that guide you to create a picture? I signed up for a class through a yoga studio at the time. I never thought I’d be painting again but it was suggested to help with my creativity in writing.๏ฟผ

First, I had my warrior therapy last year with PT and now painting. That ocean picture wasn’t too challenging as I’m sure it would’ve been easy for Warrior. I was excited but my issues were more social besides painting back then. The owner of the yoga studio was coming and as usual, I had such high expectations. I’m learning on that… She’d be the only one I would know as we did chair yoga halfway through the class. She wanted to establish herself in the community and I loved this idea. We’d talk, sip wine,๐Ÿทand paint together. It would be such fun! No idea she brought a friend.๏ฟผ

No big deal since we could all have some girl time despite this session being a family day at “Pinot’s Palette.” It became awkward though when she asked me to take their photo together. Yeah, then I knew they would be a twosome with me flying solo. I still followed along as music played in the background while sipping my wine. The ocean was progressing nicely and then I heard some fun 80’s music which got my groove back on. “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds was a song I would seem to hear on repeat after Warrior passed for months among others. That brought a smile and a chuckle despite the social tension. It was then that the friend of the yoga teacher complemented my painting as she was struggling with hers. I gotta say that surprised me but I humbly accepted her praise.๏ฟผ

I actually struggled getting the skyline just right. Not perfection as this class might’ve frustrated my daughter, but just the colors. Where you see that hot pink~ should be orange! I tried but couldn’t keep over-correcting so pink it remained (: I love both colors but guess mine needed to stay pink. My favorite part is the fence posts. They just pop out from a distance but with water pictures, I usually get lost in the perspective. I never went there again and that place is now a relocated popcorn shop. The pandemic am sure factored in but grateful to have had that opportunity while proving my painting ability, albeit a guided one.๏ฟผ

Besides painting, so much has happened in my family and there’s still more to come. My daughter turned “sweet 16,” is close to getting her drivers license, my son graduated high school, and I’ll be prepping for his party in early July. This vacation can’t come soon enough until it all returns with the boy getting his wisdom teeth out on top of all the craziness! I am trying my very best to remain calm as everything seems to come all at once. Painting truly was therapeutic as I’m sure Warrior knows. I would have an idea but didn’t give it too much thought before hand. There were some clouds against a pink cotton candy sky, a daisy flower, a monarch butterfly, a beautiful red, orange, and yellow sun, summer bugs, a sailboat in the water, some simple designs, plus a spring tree with flower blossoms. The sun, butterfly, and tree are my favorites of those.๏ฟผ โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ•ธโ›ต๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

Have you ever needed to change your routine up some to get back a spark of creativity? Maybe you haven’t but we all need to recharge and switch things around for variety sometimes. Just look at how Warrior approached his character in wrestling. Some aspects needed to remain the same but always needed to be innovative with his approach and I believe he succeeded. It wasn’t just him personally or professionally and for us fans as well.๏ฟผ

I also worked on a new YouTube video while breaking from writing. It’s all about the challenges of dealing with our old 3D world while accepting the new 5D one. Yeah, it’s kind of spiritual but I break it down (hopefully in a simple way) for all you confused folks out there. I also updated the website with some new links of more recent Podcasts while deleting those inactive ones no longer valid. Check it out if wanting more me, ha ha!๏ฟผ

So warriors- I do hope all of you reading are well as we move into summer quite soon in the U.S. We’ve had enough rain so I’m manifesting a warm season as we love the outdoors, our pool, and being in nature. Maybe you’ll do some painting too? Next week is more about Warrior as some of you fans might be wondering. After that post will be another week off but I have some more blogs coming so please stay tuned… Thank you all for reading and catching up on old posts if you did. Warrior himself has inspired a few more ideas and dreams so get your gear in place and head to the squared circle! Oh, and hearing that graduation song brought much emotion my way but as a warrior, I moved through it all. Hard to believe my “Until We Meet Again” post was last September and now it is June. It mentions my senior year and my son’s…, I will “see”you all next week!๏ฟผ

The Indy Trip ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ†

No, warriors- I wasn’t at an Indy 500 race or had been in the area but my husband was. He rarely if ever goes away on business and if he does, it’s just for the day. Sometimes, there will be the occasional overnight so back in 2015, he went to Indianapolis. I remember Warrior mentioning how the WWF used to go there a lot in his early years and well, he was from Indiana which is also his oldest daughter’s name so how about that? WrestleMania VIII was also held in the Hoosier dome there in 1992.

My husband had gone east to PA and even further west to the St. Louis arch in Missouri but never Indy. He was able to see the track and went into a souvenir shop. The kids were excited to get some T-shirts as gifts plus a few other goodies when he arrived home. My daughter’s shirt was all about the DreamWorks movie “Turbo” which came out in 2013. We actually bought the film since they loved it so much! A snail racing in the Indy 500? Where do they come up with such ideas? Cute movie though.๏ฟผ

Am remembering the only thing I struggled with when he was gone became math homework. Ugh, so not my subject and even then- the kids were past the ages where Mama could help. We’d screenshot the problems they’d get stuck on and send them as he’d call from the hotel room with answers. I let them stay up later and wait outside on the patio with the dog as the sun set waiting for Daddy to get home the next night. Of all places to go back then and he gets sent to Indiana. It was also in April, oh my… ๐Ÿ’™ That’s almost an hour away from Warrior’s hometown of Crawfordsville. Why not north to Michigan or even south to Kentucky? Nope, he went one state away to the west. “One State Away” is a chapter in my book Spirit and Belief but that’s another story. I still think it would be cool to take a trip there just to see the track and even though I am not much of a racing fan, it’s historic which is very popular to the state. It started back in 1909, such rich history. I wonder if Warrior ever got there? ๐ŸŽ

It’s held Memorial Day weekend here and that is always around my daughter’s birthday in May. We did like the 2019 movie ” Ford vs. Ferrari” and believe it or not, there was a Warrior connection but that’s just a little sidenote for me… ๐Ÿ˜‰Signs aren’t just in dreams, when I’m working out, looking at U.W. videos, or even during meditation.๏ฟผ

Moving on as that was just a little short memory of Indiana once again. Remember how I talked about color last week? Well, that connects to something I was advised to try– painting๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽจ . Warrior was an artist as is my girl so why me? At my last Energy Healing session, I had asked about some new issues and especially concerning my right leg. There’s always something, huh? I have had discomfort but nothing that would impair me from doing activities. I do have those internal fibroids and a hamstring that acts up sometimes but this seemed different. It can be just the calf muscle but then in the upper thigh. I was wondering if we could possibly explore this so she did.

Those guides or angels of mine came through and related how it’s a creative issue. We always assume the physical but what does that mean? I know with our brains how the left side is logic and right is creative but is our body different? Turns out after looking up some info, she discovered that our right side is the masculine while the right is feminine. Not to worry here, we need both and use both every day. My masculine side of doing, going, and thinking needs a rest. The feminine side is the intuitive or relaxed and the part that needs me to just BE for a bit. It makes sense since the sign of Virgo (me) is controlled by the planet Mercury which is intellect. Geminis have this too. Don’t want to get into too much astrology here, but it’s very true on this journey of mine.๏ฟผ

There’s some new info for all of you I bet as it was for me as well concerning the body types. It seems I have some creative blocks with writing and I actually knew this. Both blogs have kinda put me in slumps lately and I’ve struggled bringing engaging content. I LOVE writing and sharing with everyone on these platforms but it was suggested I not wait for my summer trip and break now. At least for a month anyway. I was shocked to hear that and tears formed a little. My guides don’t steer me wrong and I know I needed to listen to these words. Painting was their idea but not to give it much thought. Just even a few strokes on paper regularly to feel inspired in a new way. I’m not expecting a masterpiece but those two Geminis in my life that are artists can witness my “creations!” This will be a first taking such a long break but I have painted before. It was part of a yoga class and my beach scene hangs in our house. All of it was guided though while this is to be spontaneous. I need to go with the flow more and just BE… I do have free will to not take their advice but I’m learning to listen more.๏ฟผ

This actually is a good time to break for me as soooo much will be happening with my kids and family concerning important milestones. Plus, I’m liking how that pic of Warrior you see is more current than a wrestler pic so that fits to end this month of April. I will MISS connecting on here but to anyone new, you have 5.5 years of posts to get all caught up! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I will return hopefully more creatively inspired and maybe a lighter tone. I do share quite a bit as SO many personal stories get back in my Warrior memories but perhaps these writings will take on a different angle. Not to fret, I will always relate in the same way with Warrior stuff and myself but evolving we must do.

I still hear from fans and even those who have read my book so it’s always very encouraging. A woman in my FB intuitive group had messaged me a little while back about re-reading the pages on a spiritual awakening. Had to look up those sections to be sure! When she had sent that message, I was in the middle of reading something Warrior had written. I told her that and she commented on it being a sign. Of course it was because I always believe.๏ฟผ ๐Ÿ“—

I believe in all of you too whether you are spiritual, a fan of Warrior, or just like my stuff. Spend time doing what you love but take those breaks too. We have to let go of control and give that doing side a rest. Most of us aren’t pro wrestlers who have to GO all the time. We also need to switch up our routines every now and then. Guess this is what I am advised to do so despite some initial fear, I believe it is for my highest good. Happy early month of May warriors and reach out to me about your ultimate stories! This leg block has got to go… Let’s all take time to slow down on that Indy track and enjoy the ride.๏ฟผ

P.S. I have also loved getting in touch with some other guys Warrior knew personally the last several years of his life. I am humbled they took the time to respond.๏ฟผ โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน๐Ÿ˜Š

P.P.S. I feel like watching the movie “Turbo.” Maybe I will (:

*** You can get caught up here as well fans! I write a more in-depth spiritually based blog but this week was about the break… Check it out for more topics if you feel the vibe PLUS, book info is on there too!

*** The book is basically a diary of sorts filled with short stories on my beginnings with wrestling, following the Ultimate Warrior, psychic terms explained, humor, family stuff, and other goodies. He got me to trust my own intuition more as *SIGNS* manifested shortly after his passing. It’s on Amazon and other book retailers. I would love a review as it’s much appreciated!

*** I am also over on Twitter, YouTube, (LOTS of cool videos on Warrior!) and in a U.W. fb group.

*** Until June, always believe warriors as I will too! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽจ
