"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies growth and our freedom."

I've seen the above attributed to a couple of different subjects, but the sentiment is just as good.


Performing feats of fitness (in fits) since 1998.


Zen swimming since 2011.

Things I've learned:
"If you are not here, you are nowhere."
"Help is everywhere."
"Do. Now."
"Pretend you are not afraid."
"Making long term happiness does not always feel good in the moment."
