I have all the feels from this last weekend.
The numbers I hit at The American Open Finals, don’t even matter. Was this year’s AO Finals my best performance or an example of what I am capable of? Hell no, but when I look back at where I was last year... the difference is night and day. My mindset is completely different. Fails made me more hungry and made me try to fix the errors and I actually enjoyed being on the stage again for the 1st time in way too long.
I learned a lot about myself this last year through all adversity and changes in my life. Am I a completely different person, fuck no! I wouldnt want to be, but I am better version foresure. Wiser, more driven, happier, healthier and on the right track and only gaining momentum. Life is good.
Thank you to the people that have stood true by my side, even in the worst moments and most importantly at times, didn’t judge. I wouldn’t have made it through without guys and I see you💜 Also, thanks to the almost complete strangers that have come out of nowhere the last few months and have become some of my biggest supporters and motivators. My circle is growing and happy with ones that are sticking.
Huge thanks as always goes to my coach and mentor, @ciniman_waffle who didn’t have to put up with me this year but did. 365 days in a year and this guy was there 5-6 days per week and didn’t give up. We kept working no matter how bad things got. The goal for this meet was to get on that stage, put up a good fight and have fun and I think we surpassed that goal. I wouldn’t have made it back to that platform without you man. We’ve got much bigger goals for this next year and I am ready for my 2020 competition season and more. So in the words of the many greats before me .......LETS fucking GOOOO🔥🔥🔥🔥
