I never got why so many people say a Youtuber saved their life. I didn’t get it, how can someone you don’t even know help you, how can you feel like they’re essential for you living and continue living. But now, when I’m at my lowest point, like in a very dark place, I get it. Yeah I get how someone like Mark can give you the strength to continue. I feel how important it is to hear him say he’s proud. Because he is. I believe that he is proud that we continue living and that we try to be our best even in our worst times and that we fucking fight for leaving this pile of shit thoughts that say it isn’t worth it. Even if it seems like living is the hardest thing to manage. I don’t know where I’m going with this, I just wanted to say, I am truly thankful. For this man, because I love him from the bottom of my heart. I genuinely care for this man because he saves us every day without knowing. I know nearly no one will read this but I felt like I had to say it.
Day 2 of my work trip, check! I made it to the hotel gym again for cardio before bed last night. I need to go to sessions today, take down my poster, and fly home Saturday morning. I’ll be happy to get back to my routine for 1.5 weeks before another work trip.
Good luck with 17.5, CrossFitters! You’ll do great on those thrusters and double unders! 💪
