Today’s blog post is the topic of something very close to my heart and one of the main reasons why I’m on the journey through to a UWCB event. As you may know 4th February the world will be all coming together to celebrate a day a day we all support and stand together this day is…
This year’s theme is ‘We Can, I Can’, and this defentily fits me, I know I can do this boxing and I will do this boxing, ‘We Can’ achieve anything we want we just need to dream. Why ie this day so big and means so much to myself? One answer it’s because of this man in the photo with me below..
This is the only photo I have got with both myself and my daddy in, if you haven’t read my about page my dad died of prostate cancer in 2009. He died in Thailand which he moved to in 2005 after he couldn’t have me back living with him. I never saw him again and i got so upset and I was get really upset on the anniversary of his death and on his birthday. I wish he was still here but the dreaded cancer took him away, it takes people every single day and 1 in 2 people will get cancer sometime in their life,this is horrible, but we can all come together and fight cancer and make a cure quicker and more successful. On the 4th of February I’ll be supporting world cancer day by letting off a blue cancer balloon (representing prostate cancer ribbon colour) with with a note attached to it to send off up to the sky to my dad. I will make it a Vlog Entry when I let it off so that I can then post it on my blog. I hope you all join me in supporting World Cancer Day 2018. Let’s get a cure sooner!
Sorry guys that I have had to yesterday’s blog post this morning I was stressed and abit busy yesterday and forgot to do it last night, well how was yesterday’s adventure? Well I was quite anxious and stressed yesterday and my aderaline level was quiet high. Yesterday afternoon to try and calm myself down my family said I should take my dog for a walk down to the local park. It was lovely spending time with my ‘Adidog’ (Loulabelle in her Adidas jumper). Here are a few photos I took of loulabelle, if you wanna know if she enjoyed the work she wouldn’t move last night she was flat out on the bed, what cheered me up and calmed me down is she kept nudging the back of my legs in the park to make me run with her again.
Life will always give you the path and show you the way but it is you who makes the choices, you don’t make the choices in life then you will never learn, that’s how I learnt, I made choices in my life, some of them were bad I can see that now but some of them were good, if you don’t choose what option you take yourself then you probably won’t succeed in what you want to do. There are certain situations though when life doesn’t give you any option, these are for example, when you’re terminal ill, can’t work anymore due to injury/physical and mental illness, etc. Never put yourself down though if life doesn’t give you an option or path you can still succeed, never give up and never give in.
This was me, a few years ago, I gave in, I lost hope, I had to resign from my dream job, I had no choice, I wouldn’t be here typing if I stuck to the job, life shows you the path it’s you who makes the option, but sometimes life has to choose the option for you. Now I’m starting to get my motivation back and have perused another industry another career, I won’t go into detail until a few months have passed by, but life has shown me the way. It’s shown me the great and glorious and the bad. It’s shown me who’s there for me and who’s not. It’s shown me trust and failure. Life made me choose to sign up for UWCB I knew it’s something I got to do for my dad and that’s excatly why I’m doing it. Never give up, never lose hope, never stop following your dreams, you will succeed always tell that to yourself.
So today while we were on our way to get the dent fixed in kirk’s car we went past what we will come home for one night in 9 weeks the iconic BET365 Stadium, I had a lump in my throat as we drove past as this was my dad’s favourite football team and this is where I’ll be boxing at, what an place to box ant the home of mine and my dad’s favourite football team.
Mine and kirk’s excitement is getting very high now (especially mine) as we are getting closer and closer to the starting day of training when the fun will begin… I will keep you posted on the road to my fight.
