Hey everyone, look what we’re doing again on Sunday!
In partnership with my music crew I’d like to invite you out for a little jog. It’s gonna be a beautiful day. Let’s do this. Register at mikeschwartz.ca/sundayfunday soon to be on the new blog at MusicFit.ca
We’ll meet at @rossocoffeeroasters at @nmc_canada At 11:07 and literally do a coffee run to @themaindishyyc. See you on Sunday. •
Peace can be found no matter where you happen to be, it's simply a matter of recognizing that it's always dwelled within you. ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ I've struggled with depression my whole life. It took many years for me to be able to recognize it and give it a name, for a long time I didn't understand that it wasn't just a part of my sometimes austere character. I thought I was just "different". I thought my childhood had left me damaged in ways that no one else could understand. I was sure that I was the only person who struggled to interact with others sometimes, because forcing myself to act "okay", wasn't something I'd heard being discussed. There were(and occasionally still are) days in which it took every ounce of self control I possessed, to get out of bed and go out into the world. ▪️▪️ ▪️ One of the many gifts that boxing gave me, was the necessity and time to look within and analyze why I did things, why I felt certain feelings, how I could overcome the urges that would affect how effective I would be in the ring. Boxing forced me to know myself, from inside out. It showed me where the cracks were and gave me the motivation to fill those cracks with new habits, new sources of fulfillment, new challenges. Boxing taught me stare down my opponents, both within the ring and within myself, and react in a way that would enact power and confidence and growth. You can't learn and advance, if you're too busy telling yourself that you're fine the way you are. Boxing showed me my flaws, and told me that I was able to turn those into my superpowers. And perhaps the greatest power that it illuminated, is the ability to find peace, not in a place or another person, but within myself. Because everything(the whole universe in fact), is within every one of us, and when we recognize that, we are able to be anywhere, with anyone, in any space/emotion/mindframe that we choose to be. 📸: @thisisdizzle
