I dug this competition photo up from ca. 2014 (NPC Masters Nationals). What a journey I have been on my whole life! I am so thankful for all that I have experienced and suffered through. I know today that I have benefited so greatly from all of my experiences. They have helped me evolve into a man who seeks inward knowledge.
In my 20’s and 30’s I sought victory in bodybuilding so that I could validate myself amongst others. But today I bodybuild not to compete or validate myself, but instead as a healthy way to live. It has taken me the better part of my 51 years in this life to realize that all the answers and all the relief that I every wanted was within me always.
Today I seek to always walk with an open heart and to meet others with joy and compassion without sacrificing my own self care or my own ethical principles. In doing this, I meditate each day, I journal daily and I surround myself with like minded people. Wow what a difference!
I have always loved my life but now I am in love with my life! Thank you Universe! Thank you to me! I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
