You may not think this picture represents a Warrior, but you are mistaken.
What is a Warrior?

What makes a Warrior?
These people are true Warriors
I won’t go into details about the challenge, it’s their soul journey, they know who they are. Many people are under the mistaken idea that a Warrior can merely be recognized at a glance. The ‘ripped’, built man at the gym? Maybe. Maybe not. He might just as well be self-centered and egotistical. Just say’n.
Top: One of my Best-est friends in the whole wide world. He’s my life-long coach, my mentor, my teacher, my honest, down to earth, humble but brutal eternal friend. HE IS A TRUE WARRIOR. He is my brother and I love him dearly. He would also probably not appreciate me sharing this with you (he highly dislikes pictures), but just know this man is a true WARRIOR.
Middle: Silly woman doing her version of a yoga-style ‘Warrior Pose’ out in the woods. Hahaha! LMBO! Hope you’re laughing yours off, too. Good times.
Bottom: This is my sister (another Bestie), and I. She is a Warrior. This is her in one of her many wigs. She’s like a bottle of glue that holds life together for everyone around her. She has survived a nasty bout of cancer and came out a Warrior, bonafide Kung-Fu Black Belt, lol. Seriously though, it has changed her from the inside-out. She is now dealing with active cancer again. I have no doubt she will come off the conqueror.
Warriors come in all shapes and sizes, and from different backgrounds. Throughout all time, however, there are various attributes that lie within each of them that are a part of the whole. These attributes were born through the refiner’s fire. They were lessons learned and never forgotten. They hold their lessons sacred.
“A warrior must only take care that his spirit is not broken”
This weekend I’d like you to take the time to read the following article:
Go to a quiet place, get comfortable, eliminate the distractions, and sink deep.
Read, listen, what is this article speaking to YOU?
Have a most wonderful day and plan for a successful week.
PS - The way of the Warrior:
Immovable as the rock shore pictured on page one
Powerful as the waves of the ocean
Fast as the wind
Quiet as the sun
A Light to clear the darkness
A beacon to all around
“To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.””
Who and what will you become?
