We win, we lose, we move forward, we move back, we pass others in the race for time, and then watch them pass us. Training is never stationary and neither is life. We find love and then lose it, but stay hopeful it will find us again. We become professionals and then switch careers and find ourselves at the back of the pack once again doing our best to keep up… But we’re growing, we’re striving, we’re building muscles, character, strength, humility, and compassion. Nothing ever stays in our lives because we hold tightly to it. Holding on simply creates resistance against what is. Accepting where you are in each moment allows for the next moment to usher in gifts that may have been missed had we been clinging to what was.
