Today was a tough day for me, it was the kind of day that made me want to curl up in bed and not get out. The kind that made me tear up and bawl at the drop of a hat. I wanted so bad to just say eff it all but had 2 plates worth of crap to do that wouldn't get done unless I did it. And when 7pm rolled around and I finally finished working and had 5 min to get ready for practice all I could think was how easy it would be for me to let the eff it feeling win and bail on practice. And for about 30 min I let it win, until I forced my body, that was as heavy as a ton of bricks off of my bed and into my car. As soon as I got there I felt myself smile for the first time today at a junior skater and her mom. Seeing that girl smiling back at me made me start to feel like being there wasnt going to be so bad. After gearing up and skating for a bit I realized I hadn't thought about work stuff in a whole 30 min and that I could finally breathe. It made me think for the millionth time in the year I've been skating how happy I am that I let my girl Bricks Hit-house talk me into joining. She will probably never see this (she doesn't technology) but I want to give her a big sloppy thank you kiss for the encouragement.🤘💜 -Taco 🌮
TL;DR: Derby is the perfect stress reliever and I'm so blessed to have it in my life.
