Two years ago today was one of the most significant days of my life. It
was the day my late martial arts master, Chad Boxx, found me and took me on
martial arts student. He became my cherished friend and mentor that I greatly needed. After what I went through overall and at my old dojang, he came at
the perfect time.. He did so much more than present me with my black belt…. He lifted me up and
helped guide my entire life. My eyes finally opened to the essence
of purpose and life/martial arts.
I began writing because of the inspiration and confidence, to which he guided me. This led me to getting recommended and accepted as a Writing Fellow at the college. He was also a magnificent mental health worker; my interest in psychology furthered through the inspiration and brilliance he portrayed to me.
I cannot imagine my life without my three passions and ambitions that make up my life: martial arts, writing, and psychology.
Simply, everything began through him.
Thank you, Master, for the love and guidance that changed me forever. Thank you for changing how this chapter could have ended and for allowing me to have an incredible journey ahead of me. I was truly lost, and I thought I wanted to disappear forever. I guess all I wanted was to be found. You’ll always be by my side, just as you said. I love you.
