It is not in spite of daunting circumstances that we grow but because of them
During my 12 years in Thailand I was working nearly 24 / 7 on the gym web site making improvements and updates. I was up at 4 – 5am most mornings to respond to e-mails, staying up till 3am after fight night’s to ensure fight video’s were online before I went to bed. It was an experience that helped developed my internet skills far beyond my expectations.
Since leaving Thailand in 2011… I have had very little desire to even turn on my computer. Other than updating photo’s to facebook, I have had NO motivation to work on any of my web site’s. Last year I was even considering selling some of my web site’s because of the lack of inspiration I had to develop them.
But shitty situations can inspire awesome solutions and I have come to realize that the disorienting storms of life are not just about survival but of learning to thrive when times are tough. It is not in spite of daunting circumstances that we grow but because of them.
It’s now 2014 … The year of the horse …. I now find my self inspired to move forward and work towards developing my skills and improving on my craft.
My first month back online has been a but rusty and remembering my way around a web site has been a little slow but I am once again back online, Back on the road less traveled, the road to new adventures …. HAPPY days .
I stepped out of my comfort zone and walked the path unknown A journey of hope & dreams I’m on the road that is less traveled Incognito is opportunity it looks a lot like hard work That’s where my dreams become reality … If I choose to take that chance. Poem by Danny Avison 2014
