“In A Moment…”

Posted: July 8, 2015 in Uncategorized

From Words With Lisbeth…

“This life changes in a moment.

One day, you’re 28 (or 32, or 40) and on top of the world. The next day, you’re diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer and you’ve got a year (or less) to live.

One day, you’re busy chauferring your kids and talking to your mom on the phone. The next day, Mom’s incoherent and incapacitated from a stroke, and there are decisions to be made.

One day, you’re working on your butterfly pull-ups and thinking about your next competition. The next day … well, there is no next day. You never made it home from the gym. You never saw that truck turning left in front of you. And you’ve left a couple of kids to figure out this crazy, confusing life without you.

As important as we think our time is in the gym, it isn’t. As important as we think the issues of programming or whiteboard times or membership fees are, well, they’re not such a big deal. As important as we think the CrossFit Games are … well, they don’t mean shit.

This life — this, right here — is important. What you do with it. How you act in it. How much kindness you give. How deep you dig inside of yourself to love, to live, to survive, to persist in the face of sadness that should rightly break you in two and leave you unable to walk, let alone run or work out, because your heart has been crushed into tiny pieces and lays shattered on the floor. You are not one piece anymore. You are shattered.

But … you get up again. You must. Not only for yourself, but for everyone in your life. They deserve your best. You must give it to them.

And our time in the gym teaches us this, helps with this, enables us to be strong enough — in body, mind, and spirit … to go on. What we think we can’t survive? We did it in that workout. And we can survive. We must. We will.

So, your time in the gym is important, in a way that you may not quite grasp. Do your workout today. Go hard, go heavy, go fast. But hug those you love, and keep your priorities in line. Because this life changes in a moment…”

“I Don’t Know How I Came Across This But, When I Read, ‘One day, you’re 28 (or 32, or 40) and on top of the world. The next day, you’re diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer and you’ve got a year (or less) to live.’ Then I Just Had To Keep On Reading… NO!!! I DO NOT HAVE LIVER CANCER… But… These Past Few Days Have Been Hell For Me… First Of All The Pain…I Can’t Sit Up, Sit Down, Stand Up, Lay Down Without My It Feeling Like Someone Is Tearing Apart My Abs From The Inside… The Cramps That I Get Every Hour Are Terrible…  Can’t Drive… I Get About 2 Hours Of Sleep Because I Wake Up Screaming In Pain… It’s Bad… It Hurts… And I Don’t Give A F–K, It Even Has Made Me Cry A Lot!!! I Haven’t Been Able To Be With My RC CrossFit Family… I Can’t Do Anything Besides Sit On The Couch… The List Goes On & On… I’m Not Dieing… I Feel Like It… But I’m Not Going To Die From This… Just Something That’s Going To Take Me A Little Time To Get Back On My Feet…
