On the Mat Day 388: Jiu Jitsu - Changes You
Now I am very different. The way I think about life and what I want out of it has changed. I don't care about money (although it's important) or my career or anything the multitudes on this planet care about, I only care about being happy and content. Rolling brings me happiness for sure. I am in the moment not thinking about anything except how to sweep, throw or submit my opponent. I think about new positions, techniques and such. This has created a curiosity in me that has probably lain dormant since I was a teenager.
I am almost done with my company job. A job I've worked at for almost 9 years. I feel like I have broken off some kind of invisible shackles. I look forward to whatever happens next no matter which way it goes - for worse or better. It's a change in my evolution. I am scraping off the rust and moving again. Jiu-jitsu has give me this lust for improvement and I am thankful for it.
