We leave for a week-long family vacation in Florida today and I wasn’t originally planning on writing a post, but it kept bugging at me and I felt like I had to. It’s going to be a short and sweet one today.
The way I felt at this time last week and the way I feel right now is drastically different. And I have to give a large portion of credit to the people of SFC. This is my I-can’t-thank-you-all-enough post to the coaches and people that train at SFC. All morning I’ve been constantly thinking to myself, “How lucky are we to have a place like SFC in our area?” The coaches care about us, all of us, on a level that I just never expected from a fight gym when we signed up almost three years ago. And, I’m not even a fighter.
The amount of support, encouragement, private messages, and help from not just the coaches, but the members of SFC has blown me away this week.
This whole BJJ trek has been a very bumpy road. My headcase crap slows my progress and gets in my way a lot, and for years I’ve always just assumed that eventually everyone would lose hope with me and just give up. I’m a mess 90% of the time. This week proved to me that as long as I’m at SFC and I’m not afraid to ask for help when I need it, no one is going to give up on me. I feel like the coaches and training partners want to see me reach my goals and my potential just as much as I do.
It was a good week. It was a great week. Thank you SFC.
