we get what we train for.

to improve physical performance, practice skills on the field of play, as if on event day.

to run better, practice running.

to tackle better, practice tackling with what you’re tackling on game day: people and not equipment.

mixing strength training with skills training changes muscle activation patterns.

using this as a basis, I see where I’ve honed my skills for: sadness, anger and martyrdom.

now I’ve laid my martyr to rest, I’m choosing differently now.

my focus going forward is to practice happiness.

while not denying my pain, I am now choosing to change my focus to love, happiness and strengthening my weaknesses.

so tonight I will raise my glass and toast to the change I’ve needed the most: here’s to practicing happiness!

Because I get what I train for, here’s to softening more..

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
