Imperfection…

Not the worst Monday morning I have ever had but I can certainly tell you waking up for a consultation to see if I am a candidate for a Panniculectomy/Abdominoplasty was certainly up there on moments I could have lived without. Normally I am not really too self conscious about my body these days.  I... Continue Reading →

Extensions of Me…

Along my path I have been asked about various things that I do when I fight, when I make my weapons and what prepares me to do what I do.  Last night I finished up my new axe and was painfully reminded of why I don't skip steps. Years ago at Melee Madness, an awesome... Continue Reading →

Dragon Con 2016

I got back from Dragon Con 2016 last night.  I fell asleep surrounded by my furbabies and my loving husband.  When I woke up this morning I was rejuvenated in ways I can't describe.  I am an extrovert that thrives on energy others give off and Dragon Con is one of the best places to...

I have been on campaign for two weeks of fighting, of adrenaline highs and lows, of extreme physical activity and of never... Continue Reading →

I Want To Feel Life…

A few days ago a wonderfully amazing man shared 5 words with me that resonated like nothing has before.  Austin's text simply said "I want to feel life".  Regardless of what he was replying to me about, that text stood out from everything else.  In fact, I kept going back to it, and re-reading it,...

Maximum Effort…

The one rule to live by that I took away from "Deadpool" (which I loved btw) was Maximum Effort.  Always give your best, push your hardest and no matter what...never leave home without a weapon lol! But some days are much MUCH harder than others.  Yesterday was one of the harder ones for me.  Everything... Continue Reading →
