Hafa Adai!

Mondays arent as bad as you think they are. People often complain about Mondays and how they wish for the weekend to come. Why is that? Mondays are the best time of the week. Its new week to work towards your ultimate goal… Whatever that may be for us. Be happy! Be positive! Be optimistic! Some people didn’t make this Monday, and some won’t see the next week. Be thankful… 😉

I search for Motivational & Inspirational quotes daily, and ran into one of my favorite ones the other day: “If you find something you love to do… You wont have to work a day in your life.” I dont see it as “work” or “sacrifice” or anything like that… It is a set of things that you just gotta do to reach your goal. Whether its waking up early to get a workout in, stayling late in the office, holding another human being inyour belly for 9 months, or whatever it may be. Its a set of things that WE MUST DO! If we don’t do it, we are actually sacrificing the ultimate goal!
So…. with that being said, I hope you’re starting your week off better! =D

I was on the road on my way to Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) at 5:47am (LOL exactly 5:47am). En route to pick up the 1st American BJJ Team to place at the Pan American Jiu-Jitsu Championships. Team Lloyd Irvin is making history again! Everyone did so well… When they were unpacking, all you could hear were medals clinging. It was awesome! Team Lloyd Irvin placed 2nd overall in the whole tournament.

Im rarely up around sunrise time, so the 50min drive to the airport was very ‘spiritual.’
Spiritual? How so?
Being awake around this time facinates me! We all take this moment of the day for granted because everyone tries to get the extra

few minutes of sleep. As I was driving, I turned the radio off and enjoyed watching the sky change colors. For those few minutes of observation, I felt as if nothing really mattered. Everything in the night is over… Its day now… a New Day! Day after day, year after year, century after century, millenium after millenium; this happens all the time. No matter what happens in the night… the sun will always come up.  I feel as if Im taking part in something that has been going on since the begininng of time.
I always think about how it was for people 1000’s of years ago. Their form of light was fire. Nights must of been scary… not able to see but only hear. When the sun comes out, they would feel in their “element.” They are in tune with the earth. The day is here! We made it through the night! There is Life! No matter what the day will bring, it is up to you how you want your day to be.

Wake up early one day and enjoy the sunrise!
