I love rolling hills, we don’t have much of those in the center of the valley. You get closer to the mountains and you can start seeing them. Further you will go, more you will see and if you venture far enough the rolling hills will be as big as mountains. That’s what I like about Colorado, the adventures, the discoveries, the unique places from a different earth. During the winter, the adventure diminishes and you feel closed in. It’s a good time to learn and improve our skills, open our minds to new pathways for knowledge and acceptance.
New year goals never really worked for me. If I have been thinking of something for a year, I know if I get to it I won’t let it go. I started Jiu-Jitsu, meeting some great people there who pushes and trains me to be better. I come home with sore muscles, bruises, and sometimes pain. Turning around in my bed has become difficult because of that. Sometimes, I drive to Jiu-Jitsu and stay in my car wondering if it’s really worth it to go out on the mat. Though, I think I have reached a point where I’m not only liking the time spend there but also starting to grave for it. After 20 years behind a desk, it’s really nice to push my body to do something it’s not used to and transform that fluffiness into something with more strength and endurance.
