Young man name Austin. The first time I cut his hair at my work place he was super shy but I got him to talk to me. Austin only wanted me to cut his hair because only I knew ‘how to’ cut his hair. His father, Larry, is probably the funniest man ever. He talks so much a rock could be his friend. I’ve known them over 6months now and really some of the clients are like family because I see them so often and they love coming in to see us.
Today I found out that Austin had a stroke about 6weeks ago. yes a stroke, at 13! He is not paralyzed but his reading level is at 2nd grade level, he has no peripheral vision, and physical therapy and medication is needed for who knows how long.
He came in about three weeks ago and got a haircut by my manager and was asking about me. Then today when his grandma came in she gave us information about his benefit coming up and she requested that I attend this benefit because Austin wants to see me :’( apparently he talks about us girls a lot and he frequently asks about me… When I heard about this it really broke my heart.
How does this little man, who is so healthy and active, have a stroke? I just want to squeeze this little man because no one his age and health deserves this.
I just don’t understand
I don’t understand my homework
My living situation
And why he makes me feel so worthless
Why do I even feel like this
i dont like to watch the news. i find it very scary.
geez i sound like a wuss. but i choose not to watch it because what they choose to show and feed us is so…real and terrifying. i know its part of my duty to be up to date with current events world wide but theres so much pain and suffering that the media covers and its so real.
i cant watch people being bombed, beaten, and or killed.
i cant even watch movies where the plot line is so real or could be a real situation because it scares me.
Crossfit scares the living shit out of me
Plain and simple.
I signed up to crossfit because I wanted to be strong and I knew they would help me achieve that. Little did I know how strong of a community this sport has, how involved my coaches are with my growth with the sport etc etc etc
I went in with my head held high knowing I would be kinda decent at it but i knew I wasn’t too strong.
Now I’m 3months into it, starting off strong with an injury I continue to push through and still attend every class. But the more classes I attend the more I keep learning about the sport and the more it scares me. Not like clowns and the ring girl. But people are so intense about this sport I don’t know where I should be. Do I just continue my 3x a week deal or should I shoot to someday try out for the crossfit games… Is it fair to compare my self and semi be sad when the girl next to me half my size can bench 2x what I can and not be blue in the face.
Crossfit is so intimidating sometimes and I just get a little shy when I have to attend my classes.
Plus I hate push ups because I can’t do those.
Not even one.
Nobody likes a complainer
So I try not to complain
