Oh lifting, I love you.
The path you have set for me is not easy. I never knew my affair with you would cause me so much joy and so much pain. I never expected that a simple barbell would turn my life upside down again and again and again. I never thought of the things I would sacrifice to keep you primary in my life, but I have and willingly, and I do not regret it. I didnt know that in learning about you, I would learn about me. About strength and grit and drive and about risking everything and jumping out of the comfort zone into the unknown. You make me so damn happy and are the source of my greatest frustrations. For all that, I still choose you. I love you, for what is love but growth and failure, challenge and support, highs and lows? .
No risk, no rewards. Sacrifice everything to regret nothing. .
