“If you need to lose something to realise what you have, you’re not paying enough attention!”
I was going through some of my darkest times. I was feeling suffocated yet alone. Crowded yet distant. It was an amazing experience and I felt compelled to dive into the unknown; into my mind. What a trip. I’d call it a sort of lose study into how the mind works, or doesn’t.
I think it was magic and “Tricks of the Mind” that helped me pen the above quote and thus, pay way more attention to the goings on around me. Not much gets by now and I am aware of what I ‘have’. Pay attention. You’d be surprised at what stories you’re told. You’ll be glad you took the time.
Now, do a handstand.
“Stress is the resistance of what is”
I’ve been keeping to myself this past week or so. Injury and a few life stresses are getting in the way of my normal routine and it’s been solid work to stay balanced.
This saying helped me realise a lot about myself, the reactions I had to things and how to better manage my stresses and subsequent anxieties. Read it again, meditate on it, understand it;
“Stress is the resistance of what is!”
If you’re stressing, living with anxiety or simply have a few words to get off your chest, please reach out to someone.
If you think there’s a chance someone might be reaching out to you, call them and say so. Ask them what’s up! You could be their light!
Oh, this is me on a slackline. This is about 18m I think. The longest line I’ve worked out how to set up in my backyard but I think it needs to be set a little higher from the ground at this length. I’m very fortunate to have this yard. Who wants to come play?
You’ll hopefully also notice my @vivobarefootausnz that @solemechanicsfootwear helped me get on my feet. They’re the best. Go support local small business!!
I think it’s as much about strength as it is about believing in yourself.
Slo-mo and full speed of part of my @thecompoundtraining ninja 2018 comp run.
Hopefully you can see where I fully back myself with every bit of confidence I have.
Those who know me understand I’m not an overly confident person so this is kind of a big deal for me and one of the things I’m benefiting most from Ninja training and competing.
You should join me! Come play some ninja!

My shoulder is giving me a little more grief than normal at the moment. As someone who wholly believes in ‘over-thinking’, I’ve got a few ideas as to why this is.
I’ve been typing a blog post about shoulders and have spoken to a few industry superheroes for their input.
Who’d be keen to read about it?
Who would you like to hear from in relation to shoulder injury and rehab?
